After nine years of bringing you quality live theater at the Kate in Old Saybrook, we are missing you. This brief intermission was forced upon us all – who would have ever imagined a world without theater only a few long months ago? Rest assured that as we all struggle to adjust to life as we now know it - following state guidelines and keeping our social distance from each other - we are planning a fantastic second act to keep you safe, comfortable and enjoying theater once again. Although today’s hopes can change tomorrow, we want to share with you our potential plans for when The Kate can safely and economically open its stage once again.
If the Connecticut guidelines permit, the Saybrook Stage Company will be kicking off our 10th Anniversary year in January 2021 by producing one of our signature side-splitting comedies. What better way to welcome you back than to give all of us a chance to laugh together and celebrate the magical healing power of theater.
Our full-scale production of HEAVEN CAN WAIT by Harry Segall, originally scheduled for this summer, has been postponed until the Summer of 2021 when we plan to welcome a full capacity audience back into the theater. This large cast comedy will be a special summer treat as many of your Saybrook Stage favorites return to bring our 10th anniversary celebration to a memorable close.
These are challenging times for theaters and once Connecticut venues are allowed to safely open under socially distanced guidelines, we hope to produce LOVE LETTERS by A.R. Gurney as a fundraiser for the historic venue that graciously gave us a home nine years ago. Brett Elliott and the staff of The Kate are working each day to assure that after this brief intermission, the theater will re-open stronger and more beautiful than ever before with your continued support.

We can’t wait to return to the stage of The Kate and see your unmasked smiles, hear your laughter and feel your loyal support once again.
