Dear GiGi’s Believers,

On September 24th, 2020 we held a community zoom meeting to discuss the future direction of GiGi’s Playhouse Gainesville. Due to both the effects of the pandemic and safety issues at the location, the unanimous agreement of all at the meeting was to close the physical location and shift to a pop up / satellite model while fundraising and looking for a new location.

While we have many happy memories of the location on SW 34th Street, the GiGi’s community is truly made of people - our families, friends, and many supporters.

More updates will be coming soon.
