Due to the recommendations of state and local health authorities, Weathervane’s Murder Mystery Gala, scheduled for Saturday, March 14, has been postponed until a date to be announced later in our 19-20 season.

We want to thank you for your support of our Playhouse, and for your purchase of a ticket to our annual Gala celebration. We are so excited about this event and look forward to celebrating with you on a future date, which we will share soon. Your tickets will be honored at the future event.

This decision will have a potentially significant financial impact for our organization. Weathervane continues to thrive because of the strength of the Northeast Ohio arts community. You can help Weathervane at this time by bidding on select auction items online

Items currently available for bid will be part of a Live Auction conducted on the evening of the rescheduled event.

Information on a new date will be shared with you soon. Thank you for your understanding.

Weathervane continues to be a beloved institution in our community.  It is due to our dedicated patrons, donors, and volunteers that the Playhouse is the wonderful home away from home that it has become.  If you can, please consider a donation to our General Operating Fund to help guarantee the Playhouse’s future during this difficult and unprecedented time.  Your donation will contribute to ensuring that we remain a place where all can gather in joy with our Weathervane Playhouse family. 


This year, we will welcome spring with scoundrels, starlets, and scandals -- all to support Weathervane's programming!
