To the Artists and Patrons of the Hard Bargain Players,

It with a heavy heart that the Hard Bargain Players will be canceling our 2020 Season. The decision was made by both HBP and the Alice Ferguson Foundation, based on current restrictions state- and countywide. Though we are an outdoor venue, the safety of our volunteers and our audiences is our priority.

However, we would like to continue to provide an outlet for the arts by hosting virtual events (live or pre-recorded) which will feature members of the arts community!

What does that mean?

We want to host free, virtual workshops/tutorials, play readings of original works and classics, performances of original music, art galleries, and more!

If you are a member of the arts community and would like to host a free event, please contact me at hbpartisticdirector@gmail.com.
