Bonnie Ronzio


It is with great sorrow that we announce that our beloved Producer and Board President, Bonnie Ronzio has passed away as of May 22.

Bonnie was the driving force in our company for decades, and worked with love and strength as not only a producer, director, and stage manager, but her creative leadership offered us all a strong vision which allowed Actors’ Theatre to flourish even during difficult times.

We honor her life and her contributions. She will be greatly missed.

Dear Patrons,

As everyone continues to deal with the outbreak of COVID-19 and its effects on our community, there is no answer of certainty when we will be able to gather again for performing arts events and feel safe. To that end, Actors' Theatre has decided to cancel the remainder of their 2020 productions.

Please know that this was not an easy decision for us to make. However, we feel it is essential to shelter-in-place for the safety of the public, our staff, and our artisans.

We will be refunding tickets purchased for the spring and fall productions – OR – you can donate the cost of your ticket to Actors' Theatre as a tax-deductible donation.

**If you purchased a 2020 Season Subscription, please contact our Box Office Manager, Sandy Bieser, at 831-212-0822, Monday through Friday, 11 AM to 5 PM. Or, by email at ticketwench@yahoo.com. Sandy will help you with your refund.

***If you purchased single tickets to Clybourne Park or Sweat through Brown Paper Tickets, please contact them directly to arrange a refund at: support@brownpapertickets.com or 800-838-3006.

We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time, and for your continued commitment to supporting the arts.  We will be announcing our 2021 season in July with a renewed enthusiasm for entertaining you in the new year.

Thank you and be well,

Bonnie Ronzio & The Board of Actors' Theatre


our 2020 season
