Eurydice — Production Canceled

We are sad to announce that our spring production of Eurydice has been cancelled. With a state of emergency in place in MA, we must consider the health and safety of our cast, crew, and future audience members. Theatre@First wants to do our part to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19 in our area, and we feel that canceling all of the events related to this production is the best course of action at this time. We hope to reschedule a production of Eurydice in the future.
