Important ACT Show Notice
Ajax Community TheatreWith the ongoing rapid spread of the Omicron variant and no end in sight in the near future, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Clue until next November.
The health of our cast, crew, and patrons is paramount and we believe that continuing with rehearsals and shows would be irresponsible.
If you purchased tickets, you will receive an email shortly detailing how to get a refund.
Please note that we are still planning to produce Wrong Window with the hope that Covid will be manageable before April.
Thank you for your patronage, have a great New Year, and we hope to see you in April.
