Small Parts Players – SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!
March 17, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Small Parts Players, families and friends……. in order to protect us, our community, and beyond, We have determined that we must postpone our activities for some time. As you know, Governor Walz has closed public schools at least until 27 March. In the case of Attack of the Killer Grasshoppers, with performances scheduled on the 17, 18 and 19 of April, we will lose 2 of 5 very important weeks of rehearsal. Our cast works in very close spaces with each other, and a virus as contagious as the one we are facing would have a field day; who knows who might be affected from here. That’s not something that we should allow to happen. My plans also included getting the older group, ages 13-18 together for a show this spring, but for the same reasons, that will not happen. After the 19th of April, my own schedule gets much more hectic, so rescheduling our productions for just a little later is not possible. A lot of work has been done on “Grasshoppers” So I hope somehow we can consider remounting it later after the virus has departed. In the meantime, I WILL BE AT THE Lyric Annex on Tuesday the 17th if anyone does not get the message, and to collect “Grasshopper’ scripts. I would like to try to express to you all my gratitude for the help and support you all provide in the successes of Small Parts Players! I especially thank Steph and Jim ZOLLAR, the Paulings, and others who have made us what we are. At the very least, we will look forward to starting the next season in September, usually on the first day of Virginia’s school year, should it be a Tuesday or Thursday. Thank you all, again! If you wish to speak to me, I can be reached at 780-1264. This surely has not been an easy decision, and I have been paying a lot of attention to what others in our area and beyond are doing in response.
I wish you all well, stay safe!
