We hope this finds you well. As part of our theatre family, we place the highest importance on the wellbeing of our patrons, players and guests. In response to concerns related to the Coronavirus, we take our responsibility as your Community Theatre seriously. As you know, we closed the Picketwire Center mid March as part of the direction we received from the local & state government officials. We wanted to provide an update on what we know today to keep you all in the loop.
Due to the necessary time commitments we face in bringing you the highest quality in our season of shows, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our summer musical, Chess. At this point, we know we will eventually be able to reopen sometime in the future and at that time we plan to bring The 39 Steps to the stage, due to the extensive investment in time, talent and money. We are hopeful that we will be able to present our fall and winter shows (Peter Pan & Elf) and while that is absolutely our intention, we can only say that we will do what we can. We hope that the governor and local authorities will provide guidance regarding theaters in the coming weeks, which will facilitate our ability to make further decisions.
Thank you once again to our loyal patrons, without whom we might not have the opportunity to return to the stage at all. It is because of YOU that we are able to survive during this very difficult time. We would also like to take a moment to thank all of the front line and essential workers for everything they have done during this unprecedented pandemic. If you are interested in becoming a patron, please visit our website. We are actively working on a gift card solution with our ticketing vendor and hope to make that option available soon.
With all that being said we would like to ask you to provide us with some feedback. Please fill out this survey which will help to guide us in how you, our audience and patrons feel about what the future will look like at the Picketwire Center.
