To All our Beloved Cabrillo Stage Patrons, Supporters, and Friends,

It is with agony, regret, and a heavy heart that I tell you we are cancelling our 2020 Cabrillo Stage Summer Festival Season, including our productions of Kinky Boots and Candide, in accordance with guidance received from the Chancellor’s Office, state, and local healthcare officials regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Cabrillo College will be transitioning all Summer semester 2020 classes to online formats, cancelling public access to facilities as well as in-person class meetings, rehearsals and performances.

There was no one more excited about producing both these shows this season than I. Both were bucket list items for me, and both production teams were getting great casts together as well as tremendous, enthusiastic support from the College and greater community.

Naturally, we have already invested a lot into this season, so this financial hit on Cabrillo Stage will be difficult, but the College has strengthened its commitment to Cabrillo Stage, and you can look forward to some fundraising performances next year to make sure we will be ready to continue better than ever after this year's cancellation.


Our larger concern is for the many students and staff that have made a commitment to join us in building our shows this summer. With this season’s cancellation, many will not be able to learn and work at their chosen craft this summer, and we join in their loss. We are always indebted to these theater 'Gypsys’.... who will give all they can to be the best show in town. At Cabrillo Stage we have all been 'Gypsies' and we understand the energy, sacrifice, love and determination that makes these productions come to life....but it is especially their sacrifice, disappointment, and loss when summer falls dark....

As you know, these are uncertain times.... but I believe, especially after this long fast from Live Performing Arts, there will be a new Renaissance of creativity, appreciation and commitment to the Arts and to our Festival of Musical Theater.

Stay tuned to for more information on an even brighter future!

Until then, please stay safe during these troubling times,
