UPDATE: Summer Season 2020
A note from Producing Artistic Director, Tim Bair
Dear Friends of TIP,
I hope that this finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe. I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to the many of you who have reached out with messages of kindness, support and understanding these last weeks.
Unfortunately, I’m writing with sad news. Based on the recent extension of the stay at home order, and the many, many unknowns of the coming weeks and months, at this time we have decided to cancel the first four shows (Cinderella, All Shook Up, Big River & Newsies) in our OUTDOOR summer season.
We have been working behind the scenes for the last few weeks exploring every option for presenting our full season, but as we all face this global health crisis and national emergency, it has become clear to us that we are not able to move forward as we originally planned. The health and safety of our patrons, artists and staff and greater theatre community is our number one priority.
At this time, I am hopeful that we will be able to produce MAMMA MIA in late July/early August. I will let you know as soon as I can if that changes.
This is very difficult news to deliver to the hundreds of people who would have appeared on our stage, in our orchestras, and behind the scenes this summer and all the creative minds that were already working on creating great theatre in our TIP community. To them… please know… we continue to move forward and will be back better than ever! We look forward to creating great theatre and all of you appearing on our stage and doing terrific work behind the scenes
As we move through the coming weeks, the best way to get information about TIP is here on our site and on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/theatreinthepark).
Like many around the country, we are working remotely, and several of our staff have been put on furlough. I apologize now if you communicate with us and there is a delay in our response time.
I’m also looking ahead to fall and am very hopeful that we will be able to bring you ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE, and A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD as scheduled. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed!
I’m very grateful for your support and thankful for your patience as we move forward with the commitment to bring great theatre to our stages when it is safe to do so.
