The past fifty years have had their share of challenges, but nothing on this scale. If we work together, WheatonArts can continue to be a source of creativity and exploration for artists and audiences for the next 50 years. Thank you for your commitment to our future. Please let us know if you would like your registration fees returned. The return will be processed when the staff returns to the office.

WheatonArts will continue to monitor the progression of COVID-19 and will make adjustments to this plan as needed. We wish all of you good health!
