Season's greetings to you and yours!
Hello to all of our dear friends and patrons! This is the time of year the Kelsey Theatre is proud to share some of our favorite holiday shows - The Nutcracker, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, It's A Wonderful Life, White Christmas and many more.
This year, however, we are unable to share the joy and light of the holidays.
As we stay safe in our homes, our hope is to reopen the Kelsey Theatre soon and breath life back to the stage. We miss all of you so much and can't wait until we can be together - safely - again!
To put you in the holiday mood, here are two videos for you to enjoy and a link to something special! The Kelsey Players reading of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and the Mercer County Symphonic Band's Winter Concert.
Kelsey Players of Mercer County Community College puts on a yearly production of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas but the pandemic has caused a stop in performances this year. BUT that doesn't stop the cast from reading the classic favorite, "A Visit from St. Nicholas" written by Clement C. Moore. Enjoy and Happy Christmas to All!!
Please enjoy the Winter 2020 performance recording of the Mercer County Symphonic Band, complete with accompanying visuals and video introductions. 
Most of the band members have continued zooming together on Monday evenings. We wanted to give them and friends of the band an abbreviated pre-recorded “winter concert” performance from us.
All the best,
Lou Woodruff, Music Director
The Dance Connection is pleased to present two free broadcast performances of our 2020 Nutcracker.
A special thank you to everyone who's been coming to our live performance of The Nutcracker for so many years. We will miss seeing you in person, and we hope you will enjoy this recorded version of our performance.
The Dance Connection's Nutcracker is danced by children and teens from age 4 through high school. It is narrated and abridged so the whole family can enjoy.

BLACK LIVES MATTER! 

AT KELSEY THEATRE,  WE HAVE EMBARKED UPON A JOURNEY TO EXAMINE PAST PRACTICES, TO UNCOVER THE INHERENT RACISM AND INEQUALITIES THAT HAVE EXISTED, AT KELSEY THEATRE, AND IN LIVE THEATER IN GENERAL.  WE WANT TO ERADICATE THOSE PRACTICES AND ENSURE THAT THEY DO NOT PERSIST INTO THE FUTURE. WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THE KELSEY FORWARD TASK FORCE TO  EDUCATE US AND HELP TO US ESTABLISH A MORE EQUITABLE, DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE PRODUCTION STANDARD IN THE FUTURE.   


Dear Friends - As we all struggle to deal with the difficult blows we have been dealt due to Covid 19, I want to take a minute to thank you one and all for the loyalty and the love you have shown for Kelsey Theatre over the years. Please know that we miss you as much as you miss us, and that we are so looking forward to brighter days ahead. My staff is working remotely and continually monitoring the situation, as is the rest of Mercer County Community College. I have met with all of our resident production companies and have made contingency plans in order to insure that you will get a chance to see the wonderful shows that we had planned for you in the future.   But only when we can reasonably insure your safety and ours. 

The Box Office has moved all of your tickets for cancelled shows into show credits to be used in the future. 

 As always, if you prefer to donate your ticket monies to Kelsey Theatre instead - your donation would be much appreciated. Or if you feel that you really need a refund of monies paid, Diana will expedite that as best she can. 

I do hope that you all will stay safe, stay home and follow the CDC's recommendations so that we can see your faces at Kelsey Theatre once again soon.  

REMEMBER THIS IS ONLY AN INTERMISSION - THEATER HAS BEEN AROUND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AND THIS IS JUST A LITTLE BLIP - WE WILL BE BACK, BETTER THAN EVER!

  Please email Diana in the Box Office at boxoff@mccc.edu with the name the tickets were purchased under and/or the Order Number and which option you choose.

  NOTE: The College is fully closed and we will be working remotely so no one is at the theatre to answer the phone or deal with in person inquiries. Only people who do not have email will be called.

 Thank you for your patronage and patience as we navigate this unusual situation!

 And thank you again for being such loyal supporters of Kelsey Theatre.

 With love - M. Kitty Getlik

Artistic Director, Kelsey Theatre at Mercer
