COVID-19 Update

Dear Patrons, Sponsors, and Friends of Festival Theatre,

All of us at New Bedford Festival Theatre hope this message finds you safe and well.

Out of concern for the safety of our patrons and staff, and in compliance with the current directives from the City of New Bedford and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we will be postponing our 30th Anniversary production of ANNIE with the hopes we can bring it to you in our 2020-2021 season.

Current ticket holders will be notified by email in the coming weeks about their options.

While there is a great uncertainty in our lives, we sincerely hope to celebrate theatre with all of you in the near future. In the meantime, we will be looking for ways to connect with you all, our patrons and supporters, virtually. Please follow us on Facebook to stay up to date!

Thank you for your loyal support and please be well!


Wendy Hall – Executive Producer

Armand Marchand - Founder/Executive Director

George Charbonneau - Artistic Director


We are a strong but mighty team working to bring you the Best of Broadway to Southern New England. Your support during this unprecedented time is appreciated beyond words.
