Our First Virtual Play!

Pets in Quarantine was such a hit that we are making plans to present it again. Keep an eye here, in our e-newsletter and on our social media outlets for more info.


And huge thanks to the more than 250 who tuned in to watch on May 16 and who donated more than $900 to support the show and the Bell Tower Theater.


It is the spring of 2020. Humans are staying home, practicing social distancing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The pets of these humans are confused. Their lives have been changed by the sudden constant presence of their human companions. News reporter Paige Turner interviews eight of these pets to get their stories of confinement.


Additional Dates to be Announced. We are hoping to do two more showings the week of June 8.

This event is free however we will be accepting donations.

Patrons who have tickets to these performances should maintain their current tickets. All ticket holders will be contacted directly as soon as we know more.
