We hope to see you in the fall...

Remainder of 2019/2020 Season is cancelled


We deeply regret informing you that we are cancelling the remaining performances of Love's Labour's Lost, as well as the production of Gypsy.

With sadness in our hearts for a production we know would have been amazing, we regret to announce that we have cancelled our May 1-17 production of Gypsy.

The CDC and Town of Arlington public health recommendations in the face of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic make it clear that it is impossible for the cast and crew to safely prepare for the show in the coming weeks.

We did not make this decision lightly and all possible avenues for proceeding have been explored. Although we hoped that the show could be postponed until June, too many people are not available at that time to stage the production.


We will be contacting you in a short time about how to donate, exchange, or, if necessary, request a refund for your tickets. 

We hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy,

The AFD Board of Directors

This irreverent musical spin on Shakespeare's classic tale introduces us to the debonair, super-eligible King and his old college buddies, who have gathered in a resort for their five-year college reunion. When they cross paths with the Princess and her friends, the two camps quickly enter into a hormone-driven battle of wits and genders. Banter flies as chaos and comedy ensue.
