A Message to Our Patrons Regarding COVID-19
Ford’s Theatre Society and the National Park Service closed the historic site starting March 14. That closure currently extends through May 17. Our production of Guys and Dolls has been postponed to spring 2021.
Following the recommendation of the CDC, we have altered our programming as follows:
- The site (Museum, Theatre, Petersen House, Aftermath Exhibits) will remain closed through May 17.
- We have suspended all public programming through May 17 (One Destiny, Investigation: Detective McDevitt, Guided Tours and in-person educational programming).
- Our production of Guys and Dolls will be postponed until the spring of 2021 (a special thank you to Lead Sponsor: ConocoPhillips and Underwriters: Altria Group, General Motors Company and KPMG LLP).
The following options are available for those with tickets to canceled programming. Ford’s Theatre Society is a non-profit organization relying on both ticket sales and contributed revenue, we ask patrons to consider donating the cost of their tickets. Transferring your ticket to a tax-deductible donation will help sustain our revenue during these uncertain times, allowing us to further our mission to be a leader in education, theatre and history. Thank you for your consideration.
- Donate your ticket and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value
- Credit your ticket value towards a future Ford’s Theatre performance, such as the rescheduled Guys and Dolls production
- Receive a refund of the total ticket value
To expedite your request, please complete the form below to help us best accommodate your needs.
Please note: Our staff is currently teleworking. Because of the volume of requests, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for us to respond to and process your requests. Thank you for your patience!
As we enact these changes, we are hoping to find new ways of connecting with you online. Caregivers and learners across the country now find themselves in uncharted territory. We want to provide resources that you can use as you navigate this path. These resources and online programs will help connect your learners to Abraham Lincoln and his legacy of leadership during one of America’s most turbulent times, and consider how we can be leaders in these times, too.
This situation remains dynamic, with preparation being critical every day. We continue to evaluate our programming schedule and prioritize the health of our audience, artists, staff and volunteers. The latest updates will be posted on our website. For more information, please visit the CDC’s website.
