A Message to Our Patrons - December 2020 UPDATE
Dear MPI Patrons,
We miss you, and we truly hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
We also miss producing shows for you, but with the prospect of a vaccine in sight, we can (hopefully!) start to see some light at the end of the tunnel. So we thought we'd take a moment to update you on the latest news from MPI. As you might expect, we've had to make some difficult decisions about a few of our productions, but we hope we have good news to share with you in the near future.
Earth and Sky Indefinitely Postponed
As you may recall, we moved Earth and Sky to January 2021 after we postponed the production this past March. Given the current circumstances, we won't be able to perform the show in January. As a result, we've made the decision to indefinitely postpone - but not cancel - Earth and Sky.
At this point, we're not rescheduling the show for a specific time, as we want to wait until we have more information before making a decision. However, we're exploring different options on how we can bring this show to you and we'll keep you updated as we move into 2021.
March, May Productions TBD
We're still considering whether we can produce our March production of The Champagne Charlie Stakes and our May production of Cry it Out. If we're able to produce either of these shows, it will likely be at a different time than originally scheduled. But we aren't making any definitive decisions on these two shows just yet, so please stay tuned for more information.
In addition, we've made the difficult decision to cancel our July 2021 production of Beehive. Although there's a chance that we could be back up and running by July, we felt like it would be difficult to perform a musical in the current circumstances. We are not rescheduling this production, but we hope we can bring you this wonderful show at some point in the future.
2021 - 2022 Season Will Still Start On Time (we hope!)
Circumstances permitting, we are still planning to start our 2021 - 2022 season in September 2021 with the hilarious production of The Outsider! We very much hope to bring you this show (and the rest of our 2021 - 22 season) as planned, so please stay tuned for more updates next year.
2021 - 22 Season Tickets
As you know, we decided not to sell season tickets for this season. Assuming we'll be back to full operations with our 2021 - 22 season, we intend to offer season tickets once again, although the timing may be a bit different. In the typical season, we usually start selling season tickets in April. However, next year we likely won't sell season tickets until we can confirm that our season will start as planned in September 2021, so it's possible that it could be late spring or into the summer before you'll be able to purchase your season tickets. We'll update you on ticket availability as soon as we have more information.
You can donate to MPI online!
We know these are difficult times for many of you. We also know that it's a difficult time to ask our patrons for donations. But if you are able to give to MPI, we have made it easy to donate on our website here.
Thank you for your continued and valued support of Mariemont Players. We look forward to seeing you at the theater as soon as possible.
President, MPI Board of Directors
