A Raisin in the Sun
by Lorraine Hansberry
Directed by Clay Hillwig
A Raisin In The Sun is Being Postponed to Our 71st Season.
Details will be released when our 71st Season is announced this summer.
After detailed consideration of the current COVID-19 epidemic, the Circle Players Board of Directors has decided to postpone our production of "A Raisin In The Sun" until next season.
This decision was not made lightly. Our first and foremost concern is the health, safety and well-being of our patrons, performers, production teams, volunteers and the community. All outstanding original and rescheduled tickets will be refunded, include those included in a season package, unless you have already made prior arrangements with Circle Players.
During this difficult and uncertain time, we are thankful to be a part of the Nashville arts community with all of you - our friends, colleagues and patrons.
We wish you continued health and look forward to seeing you back at the Looby Theatre in the fall.
