Holiday Chestnuts: A Fun Selection of Seasonal Shorts is POSTPONED

Due to the ongoing health situations regarding COVID-19, Central Park Players is continuing to abide by all safety measures instituted by the legislation and health department. Our greatest concern is to insure the health and safety of our patrons and volunteers.

It is with heavy hearts that due to these concerns we have decided to postpone Holiday Chestnuts: A Fun Selection of Seasonal Shorts, Directed by Natalie Carmolli to the 2021-2022 season.

It is our hope that we will be able to resume our current season after the first of the year. As always, we will keep you updated of any changes.
