BIG, SCARY ANIMALS - Indefinitely Postponed

January 13, 2022

For immediate release:

We find, with the Omicron variant of Covid-19 raging, that the prospects of us rehearsing and performing Big, Scary Animals successfully and safely is highly unlikely.  As a community theater, we put the health of our performers, designers, crew, and audience above any other considerations.

Hence, we are indefinitely postponing the opening of BIG, SCARY ANIMALS.  We wish we weren't doing this, but this seems in the best interest of everyone involved.  We will endeavor to re-schedule this production for some later date, as we were very much looking forward to seeing the talents of the cast and production team on display as part of what was looking to be a wonderful production.  Please check back for more updates.
