Surging Films & Theatrics

What's Next?

Updates as of 6/6/20

Regarding The Current State of Events and Our Season:

Surging Films & Theatrics stands with the Black community and vows to increase its efforts in community out-reach during audition season. As much as we have tried to be inclusive every season, we can always do better. SF&T has and always will be an ally and is committed to providing an equal and safe space to perform. We stand with the Black community. We stand against police brutality. We are committed to fighting for equality in our theatre community and denounce racism in our country.
We can not pretend to understand George Floyd's experience but we stand with the protests around the country. There is so much more work for us to do.
Your pain, your voices, and your lives matter.

Our 2020 Season Update:

All ticket purchasers have been emailed regarding their purchase. Below is an abbreviated statement from those emails.
Thank you again for your patience as we continue to work through these uncertain times for the theatre community. Below are updates to our 3 summer shows as well as a number of options for your tickets. We thank you for your support in helping us keep our doors open and we will be ready to go when the time comes for live performances. The safety of our audience and performers are our number one priority and we are currently working on how that will happen in the Chicago theatre community for the remainder of 2020 and beyond.

Next to Normal will need a week or two of brush-up rehearsals and will be ready to go first when restrictions are lifted. We are hoping the Fall brings us some good news on that front.

Heathers will be postponed to late 2020/early 2021 so we can focus on Next to Normal. More details to follow.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is on an indefinite postponement and we have no current timeline for this production.

There are a number of costs we are unable to get refunded at this time and there is no small business relief available for our company at this time. In order for us to keep our doors open and commit to future productions, please consider donating at
