To all our valued and loved Ringwald patrons –

The health and safety of our patrons, actors and community is of the utmost importance to us.

In light of the CDC recommendations concerning public gatherings during the foreseeable, The Ringwald has decided to postpone its upcoming live performances.

We are working to reschedule and commit to sharing information with you as soon as it becomes available. We ask that you not call or email the box office to exchange or refund your tickets until our new schedule is published.

The Ringwald Theatre is a not-for-profit organization. The cancellation of theater performances has a direct financial impact on us. This difficult situation is creating challenges in all areas of our economy. But some of the world’s greatest art was created during times of adversity.

If you are able, we would so appreciate your financial assistance during this unprecedented situation. Providing art to the Ferndale community is our passion – and we couldn’t do it without you.

We thank you – we love you – and we support you and your loved ones. Stay healthy. Stay safe.


Joe Bailey, Artistic Director

"We are just on an unexpected intermission."
