A MESSAGE FROM THE WVPT TEAM
April 16, 2020
Dear Supporters of West Virginia Public Theatre,
West Virginia Public Theatre is dedicated to our community of audience, patrons,
and supporters. We find ourselves in difficult times, and we would like you to
know that amidst these times we stay committed to our mission to bring you high
quality professional theatre.We may just have to wait awhile until we can create
and you can attend theatre safely and without worry. With this in mind and
for the health and safety of our patrons, staff, and actors, we have decided to
suspend our 2020 summer season.
We were greatly looking forward to sharing the stories of
I Do! I Do! and
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time with our audiences this
June, and while we’re disappointed to postpone our summer shows we know that we
owe it to our community to flatten the curve of this pandemic. We encourage everyone
to stay home when possible and to follow the CDC guidelines of social distancing,
hand washing, and covering coughs and sneezes. Our community means the world to
us, and we will do all we can to keep our artists and patrons safe.
We hope to be able to bring Curious Incident and I Do! I Do! to you at some point
over the next year once it is safe to do so, so keep an eye on our social media
pages and our website for announcements. And if you would like to show your support
to help us weather this challenging storm, we encourage you to visit our website
at www.wvpublictheatre.org and make a donation, if you see fit. I know that is
a lot to ask in these hard times, but your support will protect the lives and livelihoods
of those who make theatre and ensure that when we comeback we will be poised to
return as strong as ever. Please take care, and be well. And remember that
we appreciate your continued support and understanding as we make decisions in
the best interest of our community.
We look forward to seeing you in the theatre soon. If all goes well we can reconvene
in December and enjoy our new production of Charles Dickens’ haunting and joyous
A Christmas Carol. I think by then we will all need the relief and communal
celebration that theatre brings.
and the Whole WVPT Team
