In keeping with the recent decisions and recommendations regarding public gatherings, we have decided to take the following steps regarding the remainder of our 2019-2020 season:
Our current production of Bloody Murder will be postponed, effective immediately. The performances scheduled for March 13-29 will be rescheduled to a later date. We’re in the process of working out the logistics with the cast and crew, as well as the publisher. Our intent, if everything works out, is to schedule the show to run during what would normally be the final slot for the season (May 14-17, 22-24, 29-31, 2020). This will allow for the season subscriber reservations (and seating) to be honored as per usual.
Our final production of the season will be cancelled, as will the auditions scheduled for March 15 & 16. We do hope to stage the production at a later date, but nothing is confirmed at this time and it won’t be part of the 2019-2020 Season.
Individual tickets purchased for Bloody Murder will be refunded. The Singletary Center Box Office will be in touch with all patrons who have reserved tickets for the show. If we are able to reschedule the show, patrons will be able to make a new reservation at that time. Given the uncertainty of the situation at this time, and the logistics involved, we are unable to forward any reservations. Players Pass holders would also have to make new reservations, if we are able to reschedule.
We are having ongoing discussions about ticketing questions regarding Season Subsribers and Players Passes. We haven’t had an opportunity to resolve all details about how to handle this, and how we proceed does depend in part on whether we can successfully reschedule the production of Bloody Murder for the May slot. We will keep patrons updated as we work through this, and we appreciate your patience and understanding. Studio Players is an all-volunteer organization with no day-to-day operation, and we contract our advance sales through the Singletary Center Box Office; this will take some time, but we’re working to resolve this as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We apologize for any inconvenience and disruption. This was a difficult decision, but one that we feel is in the best interest of the community and is in line with several actions at the local, state, and national levels.
Since many event cancellations and online learning decisions derive in part from a desire to reduce strain on the healthcare system by flattening the curve, it’s important to stay informed and up-to-date about this fluid situation.
