Theatre lovers will have to wait a bit longer to return to Gateway Theatre, which recently announced the cancellation of its 2020-21 season.

“With social distancing measures, and restrictions on gatherings of more than 50 people for the foreseeable future, we want to keep everyone safe,” Barbara Tomasic, director of artistic programs, said in an update.

But while the season can’t be presented as originally planned, the Gateway team is adapting their offerings to the pandemic. Their upcoming re-envisioned season will include a musical retrospective, old-fashioned and interactive family-friendly entertainment, outdoor and digital events and community partnerships.

They’re also offering a series called “Building Bridges” that provides emerging artists with an opportunity to connect with other creatives and explore industry-related resources. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required as space is limited.

• Sept. 12 at 2 p.m.: Finding your voice (featuring Savage Society and Ruby Slippers Theatre)

• Sept. 12 at 7 p.m.: Connecting with meaningful mentors (featuring Playwrights Theatre Centre and rice & beans theatre)

• Sept. 13 at 2 p.m.: Deepening your work and knowing your worth (featuring the frank theatre company and Upintheair Theatre)
