25th Anniversary Season Announcement
The leadership of Sun Valley Museum of Art and Company of Fools has made the very difficult decision to cancel the Fools’ 25th Anniversary Season. It is our hope that the Fools will return to production in July of 2021, if circumstances allow.
The decision was made to protect the health and safety of our staff, artists, and audiences. The main factor in this decision is the ongoing uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic—specifically, we do not know if indoor gatherings will be allowed at sufficient levels to make our shows financially viable. Additionally, there are serious questions regarding CoF’s ability to hire professional actors under Equity Association contracts, and our beloved Liberty Theatre is not an ideal space for socially distanced performances.
We are deeply disappointed for our community; Company of Fools has been providing access to world-class theatre experiences for the Wood River Valley for a quarter of a century.
This is not the end of Company of Fools. In fact, this closure gives staff and leadership the opportunity to carefully and deeply consider how to re-open safely, and with a greater focus on equitable and inclusive policies.
We are heartbroken about the closure of the Fools during our 25th Anniversary, and saddened we won’t have the chance to see you at the Liberty.
The best thing our audiences and fans can do to support Company of Fools and Sun Valley Museum of Art is to make a donation. Your support NOW will help ensure we return with strength.
