Theatre in Technicolor

New Renaissance and COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is with heavy hearts that we have come to the unfortunate but necessary decision to cancel our scheduled Spring production, Stop Kiss.

This has been a difficult decision for us to make. We are disappointed, of course, but we believe it is the most responsible choice to make for the sake of everyone’s health. We appreciate all of the hard work, time, and dedication that our cast, crew, and creative team have invested into this production. We are hopeful that we can take this project forward again next semester. Thank you for your understanding, and best wishes for a graceful transition through these uncertain times. 

New Renaissance will continue operations when when it is safe and practical for students to return to Northeastern University’s campus and resume student life and in-person classes. Our leadership will be discussing the future of Stop Kiss as well as what’s next for our company. To get updates on New Renaissance, follow our social media below or check back here in the future. Please feel free to reach out to us for support or for any questions or concerns. As always, stay safe, wash your hands, and drink plenty of water. 

All the best,

New Renaissance Theatre Company
