By PBTC Board of Directors
JENKINTOWN, Pennsylvania (January 13, 2022) – Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company, a community theatre located in Jenkintown, PA, has announced that it will suspend operations indefinitely, effective immediately, due to issues caused by COVID 19. It is hoped that the company may be able reopen once the pandemic is under control and Pulley & Buttonhole has reconfigured its operations.
Bridget Reilly Beauchamp, Founder and Artistic Director of the company, said, “This is an unprecedented time in Pulley & Buttonhole’s history. The ongoing issues stemming from the effects of COVID 19 have made it nearly impossible to continue operating. The Board of Directors took these measures so that we may step back and take stock of what the company is facing, hopefully ensuring that the organization survives.”
