DCP Theatre has modified its 2021 season in response to COVID-19. Our goal is to be conservative in our scheduling so that we allow time for a vaccine to become available to our communities in order to safely produce shows for our actors and patrons. We anticipate starting our season on July 22, 2021 with the comedy, “Savannah Sipping Society.”

A farcical tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, Wrong Window! mixes the Hitchcock thriller, “Rear Window,” with a couple going through their marital ups and downs.
