Box Office

Gemini Theater Box Office

At this time, we are experiencing illness in our cast as well as crew that is making our ability to rehearse nearly impossible. We want to have the best show possible for you in addition to a safe environment for you and your family when you come to our theater. Given the increased cases of Covid, as well as flu-related illness, in our community and schools, we feel it would be best to move our production of “Jungle Book” to a later date in the Spring, since so many of our young audience members are under the age of 6 and unable to be vaccinated or may not be able to vaccinate. As much as we practice safe protocols in our theater, this past two weeks is taking it’s toll on our family of artists, and we are trying to keep those folks home, so we do not have any spreading of illness beyond our control.

We are moving the production of Jungle Book to March 19 – 27 on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 and 3:30. Until we can update our ticketing system, we will issue refunds to all ticketholders to make it easier for rebooking, as well as keep our records as accurate as possible as we make these changes.

We apologize for this sudden change, and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate through this. Since we provide programming for some of the youngest children in the area, we know we need to make decisions that are different than other theater companies. And we make these decisions, so we can ensure our young friends have a safe environment to visit.
We will also be making updates to the remainder of the season, so be on the lookout for new dates for all remaining productions! Thank you everyone, and as always: Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay magical.

Ticketing Information

Upcoming Events

A small group of actors are getting together to rehearse a production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” However, they are in for a surprise when the director announces they must perform for an audience in less than an hour. With their real-life “Actor’s Nightmare” to face, the actors use the audience to help them get through the complicated script.

This show was written and designed for students ages 12 and older as well as for adults who have a love… or even an interest in William Shakespeare. This is a high-energy “quiz” show that relies on the audience to assist the actors on stage when they are not “getting” Shakespeare’s language.

This is a special one-weekend only fundraiser performance.

Ticket Price – $10

Young Mowgli has been raised among the wolves in a remote jungle. As he has grown older, it is clear there are some others in the jungle who wish to be in charge of his fate. With the protection of the wolves and friends like Baloo and Bagheera, it seems harmony can remain in the jungle. But, Shere Khan and some if his enemies have other plans for the young human and his pack. Audiences will become part of the jungle and learn how even the animal kingdom has to work hard to keep peace and a sense of community among it’s inhabitants.

Gemini Theater is Wheelchair Accessible.

Ticket Price – $15

This special adaptation was created by one of our students in their Acting Workshop starting in Fall 2020. Based from the original “Le Petit Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this sensory-friendly and immersive experience is designed for our audiences who love theater but often find it difficult to enjoy. Our entire space will be transformed into the story, and all seating will be on the floor as the characters move around you. We encourage bringing a blanket or cushion to sit among the planets and stars. If a chair is needed, we can provide one at your request.

This show will feature music, special interaction, movement, and as well as lighting and sound to best fit the needs of our friends in the audience. Explore with “Tony,” who is a friend of The Little Prince, who guides him on several adventures throughout the show. This will be a one-act performance with no intermission. Geared for all ages. ASL Interpreters will be at certain production, to be announced.

No Easter Sunday shows, Friday, April 15 at 7:30 performance added.

Ticket Price – $12 to $15

All Amish Monkeys shows have been suspended until the current health crisis is over. We’ll carry on doing shows again once we get the official “all clear”. Thanks!

COVID Requirements

Gemini Theater is requiring that all guests, students, patrons, and other visitors wear a mask when attending any show, class or event. Proof of vaccination is not required AT THIS TIME, since many of our visitors are children below the recommended age to receive it. With continuing changes regarding COVID and it’s variants, we will make updates to our policy as necessary.

We understand that not every one is ready to return to see live theater. We are maintaining assigned seating with social distancing seating blocked around every group. The theater will be cleaned before and after all classes and events as well as between show times on the weekends. We ask that you stay home of any of your family members are ill and visit us when everyone is healthy. Tickets are always exchangeable due to illness in the family.

At this time, our staff, teachers, actors, and technicians are fully vaccinated, per our hiring contracts. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Gemini Theater COVID Policy, you may email Jill Jeffrey at jjeffrey@geminitheater.org.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay magical.”

Thanks!!!
