A message from Irvine Barclay Theatre

On behalf of all of us at the Barclay, I sincerely hope that today finds you safe and healthy. Our hearts go out to everyone touched by the outbreak–from those who have fallen ill to every one of us who’s lost something: a loved one, a sense of security, an expectation for the future, our familiar and comforting routines and activities. Yes, this is a huge challenge, but we will meet it…together.

Per state, federal, and local guidelines the Barclay has cancelled events until at least August 31st. We’ll keep you updated right here as the situation unfolds.

Current ticket holders are receiving emails from the box office outlining the ticket return process. Our staff is working through the events in chronological order, so we appreciate your patience as we tackle the remaining schedule. We so appreciate all of you who are donating your ticket refunds back to the theatre.

More than anything, we want to thank you for your patronage and support. You are our Barclay family. We exist to serve you and yours – to provide joy, inspiration, education, and a cherished place to celebrate your lives through the arts.

We love what we do and even more, we love doing it for you! Even with the theatre dark, we’re working remotely to put the finishing touches on a stellar 30th Anniversary season for you.

Although the show cannot go on right now, with your help, our wonderful Barclay community will emerge from this storm stronger and more vibrant than ever. To support the theatre and be a hero for the arts, click here!

We promise to be here for you, our Barclay community... just as you are here for us.

Stay safe, stay tuned. There are many great things to come!
