Bringing Theater Back With Safety For All


Any activity that made money off gathering large groups of people together in close proximity got slammed by the COVID-19 pandemic. So you know live theater is suffering; there hasn't been a show on Broadway since March, and local theaters that have reopened have done so by taking great pains to keep people in the audience (and performers) separate.

But there is pent-up demand; witness the sold-out outdoor readings hosted by Rogue Theater Company at Grizzly Peak Winery near Ashland.

RTC Artistic Director Jessica Sage visits to talk about theater generally and the company's next event, joined by performers Renée Hewitt and Hazel James.
