Dear Quick Center Patron,

I hope this message finds you, and your loved ones, safe and secure. Fairfield University and the Quick Center miss you greatly and we want you to know that we are thinking of you all during these unprecedented times. At present the lights may be out and the curtain down, but rest assured we will be back, and we will come back stronger than ever. This too shall pass so that we can once again gather to share in the wonders of live performance, where we can clap, laugh, and be together as a community.

We are working hard behind the scenes to support our artists and crew, and digging deep in tough times to launch a dynamic new season for you at the Quick. Stay tuned to our emails, as we will also soon be launching some innovative virtual programs to showcase a selection of our artists and educators who are working to harness engagement and learning in new formats.

It is both hard and sad for me to inform you of the following update: Over the past several days, the governor of the State of Connecticut has taken significant measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and has put into place restrictions on workplace environments and social gatherings that impact Fairfield University and the Quick Center.

As a result, we are forced to make the following decisions in the interests of our entire community to ensure our safety. We know you love being a part of our Quick community that enjoys coming together and sharing the experience of the arts; however, based on current trends as they relate to coronavirus (COVID-19), to ensure everyone’s safety the Quick Center is canceling all live events and HD Screenings, through our current season which was originally scheduled to close on May 18, 2020.

Due to the cancellation of the remainder of the season, we are offering the following options to our ticket holders:

  • You may donate your ticket back to the Quick Center to help fund future priorities and programs, if the ticket was purchased after January 1, 2020.
    Please note that your donation to the Quick ensures that during these unprecedented times we can continue to support our artists, technicians, and the maintenance of our systems which help us bring programming to YOU — from The Met: Live in HD, to all live performances and lectures, your support helps.
  • You may request a refund. Please note: due to restrictions the Quick Box Office will only be open on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting this week and running through April 30, 2020. Please be patient and understanding as Kyle works during these times to process requests. Please contact the Quick Center Box Office at 203-254-4010 or by email at boxoffice@quickcenter.com.

Please stay safe and healthy. If you feel alone or need a friend, call a friend or loved one and say hi. Or reach out to us at the Quick for a chat. We are your community and want you to be safe and secure. Thank you for your understanding and your support through this ongoing effort to keep our community connected.

Be well,

Peter Van Heerden
Executive Director
Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts
