So a masked bat walks into a bar and says “Hey Bartender, give me a Corona”. Oh.. so you heard it already? Yeah.. we didn’t think it was funny either!!
We never dreamed when we opened our 2020 season this year with the popular “Belle of Amherst” that only six weeks later we would be postponing our next production due to a nasty little bug called ‘COVID-19’?
Your friends at Brunswick Little Theatre have missed you! We spend our days wandering around a dark theatre doing a little improv soft shoe on a now dusty stage floor, calling out “Wherefore art thou, Audience”, humming notes from Barry Manilow’s ‘I Can’t Smile Without You’, and flickering the lights in hopes that people will take their seats and the show will begin. But alas! After much deliberation, the Board of Directors made the difficult but prudent decision to cancel the rest of the 2020 season (through December). This decision was made last week after holding out in hopes of a quicker and more complete recovery from the corona virus pandemic. With recent increases of COVID-19 cases in Brunswick County, our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our patrons, volunteers, and performers.
But postponing the rest of our traditional season doesn’t mean we won’t have any events for the rest of the year. We are working on ways to bring you interesting, fun and creative events and productions this fall as pandemic conditions improve. You’ll be the first to know. And we’ll soon be announcing our 2021 season – stay tuned!
The cancellation of the 2020 season does, however, present some financial challenges for Brunswick Little Theatre, a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer-based organization. We are entirely dependent upon ticket sales and donations, and are grateful for the past generosity of our community volunteers, theatre-goers and financial supporters. The loss of the remaining five shows significantly diminishes our financial reserve set aside for mortgage payments and ongoing utilities and maintenance. You – the community – have been the heart of Brunswick Little Theatre for over 37 years. I am asking you to help BLT by donating now. No dollar amount is too large or too small and all donations are appreciated.
In the meantime, we’d love to catch up and hear what you’ve been up to, so email us at email@example.com
or share a post and/or a picture with us on Facebook. We look forward to the day when we can all be together again safely and responsibly.
