Event Description

To our friends and fellow theater lovers,
These are difficult and uncertain times for our world, our nation, and for the arts. Rest assured, Artists' Ensemble will survive and continue to produce theater that provides perspective, shows compassion, and sparks some much-needed laughter.
But right now, we have to hit the "pause" button.
AE is postponing our May production of Jeeves Saves the Day. This is temporary. Bertie and Jeeves will return as part of next season. We are as disappointed as you are, but the safety of our patrons, performers, and staff comes first. Meanwhile, we are working very hard (from home) to make certain that AE will still be here when we get the all-clear to re-open.
Options: To that end, we offer two options for anyone who has unused tickets for canceled performances of Cry it Out and/or Jeeves Saves The Day. A. Treat your unused ticket as a tax deductible donation to AE. We took a big financial hit with these cancellations and would be so grateful to those who choose this option. A letter will be sent acknowledging the value of your donation.
B. If a donation doesn't work for you, unused tickets for cancelled performances can be exchanged for vouchers to any production in our 2020-2021 season.
You don't have to decide right now. The AE Box office is closed in compliance with the state order, so hold that thought. Our staff is working from home rearranging next season. We will keep you posted via email, the AE website, and on social media as to what comes next. In the meantime if you have immediate questions you can email us at boxoffice@artistsensemble.org More information on next season, including plays, dates and how to subscribe, will be
coming soon. With your support, the show(s) will go on. Stay safe and see you on the other side,
Richard Raether, Producing Artistic Director, Artists' Ensemble Theater

Bertie Wooster’s tranquil holiday by the seaside is shattered when his dreaded Aunt Agatha shows up uninvited, dragging along his feckless cousin, Egbert Bakewell (good old “Eggs and Bacon”). Add an accidental engagement, a seance, and a visit from Sir Roderick Glossop, and disasters start to pile up, one on top of another... Fortunately, there is Jeeves.
