Lee Street theatre changing schedule due to coronovirus

Lee Street theatre office and building at 329 N. Lee St. is officially closed to the public.

All phone calls and emails are being forwarded to Executive Director Rod Oden. If you need to contact Lee Street, please feel free to call 704-310-5507 or email from leestreet.org with questions or inquiries.

Lee Street will have to make adjustments to accommodate the uncertain length of time the theatre may be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is postponing its production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” to later this season.

Because of this delay, the theatre has canceled its production of “Death of a Salesman” this season. They are on track with the summer musical, “9 to 5.” The June 26 concert with Chatham County Line is also on -track.

All other events and rentals previously scheduled at Lee Street have been postponed at this time. Lee Street is looking into other performance models and events to offer while we are all practicing social distancing and self-quarantining.

“Please know we will continue to assess this schedule based on CDC and government guidelines for public venues.” Executive Director Rod Oden said in a press release. “If you are looking for a way to provide relief to our theatre community at this time, please consider making a gift to us leestreet.org. Your gift of any size will help us to forge forward and continue the mission of Lee Street theatre. Help us continue to allow you to experience the feeling, even through this difficult time.”
