New Venture Theatre’s scenic shop was hit hard by the recent flood, and it will take us some time to prepare for our next production, “Satchmo at the Waldorf.”

Unfortunately, we’re going to have to reschedule the show for:

Saturday, September 10 at 7:30pm and
Sunday, September 11 at 3:00 pm

Performance location will not change.
Independence Park Theatre
7800 Independence Blvd
Baton Rouge, LA 70806

If you’ve already purchased tickets, we will contact each of you to offer you

1) An exchange to a new performance date works best for your schedule.

2) If you’re not able to attend one of the new scheduled performances, we will offer you a gift certificate good for any show of equal value for either the 2016 or 2017 season.

3) If neither of the above options work, we will offer you a full refund

Again, we apologize for this inconvenience. It is our goal to produce, “Satchmo at the Waldorf” at the high quality that you’ve come to expect from New Venture Theatre. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 225-588-7576. We are back in the office today and ready to help any way we can!
