For the second time in its 88-year history, the Ogunquit Playhouse is cancelling its season. The first time was during World War II.

“Unfortunately, after careful deliberation and budget re-forecasting, while keeping in mind the health and safety of our staff and all of you – and now, in light of the new state guidelines – we have come to the very difficult conclusion that we must cancel our extraordinary lineup of shows slated for our stage this season, with the hope of moving them to a future season,”  Bradford Kenney, Executive Artistic Director of the playhouse, wrote in a statement today. “This is the first time our Playhouse has had to go dark since World War II.”
