Dear ACT family, friends and supporters,

In the interest of public health, and per recommendation from government officials and the Centers for Disease Control, we have made the decision to postpone several of our scheduled events for this spring and summer.

On March 13th, were we set to celebrate ACT’s 10th Anniversary at our major annual fundraising event, Encore for Education. As many of you know, the rapidly evolving situation led us to postpone that event, which was to honor ACT Co-Founder Judy Tenenbaum and Arts Educator Karen Q. Clark, until an as-yet undetermined date.

We have also made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming productions of BILLY ELLIOT and MEMPHIS. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but as the health and safety of our audiences and performers is our top priority, we feel that this change is necessary. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the production dates for BILLY ELLIOT have now been moved to May 13-23, 2020. MEMPHIS performances will now take place July 22-Aug 1, 2020. All purchased tickets will be honored for an alternative date of your choosing.

Please contact us at info@argentacommunitytheater.org to update your reservation, if you have already made one. Should you be unable to attend a re-scheduled performance, we will be happy to credit you with tickets to another ACT production in the future.

During this time of social distancing and self-quarantining in the interest of protecting our whole community, we know that many will turn to the arts as a way to lighten the burden on our collective spirits. Whether through streaming entertainment services, music, visual arts or virtual museum tours, we have no doubt that the arts will provide a needed respite for all us during these unprecedented times. Your support of the performing arts is an invaluable part of what allows local organizations like ours to function and serve. Nonprofit arts organizations like ACT operate on a tight budget, even in the best of times. Making decisions like these in the interest of protecting our community which leave the theater “dark” for a period of time will inevitably deal a financial blow to our organization. We are so grateful for your interest in supporting our programs here. If you are able to give a sustaining gift to help ensure that ACT will come back strong, please visit https://argentacommunitytheater.org/support/ and encourage others to do the same. We look forward to gathering with all of you to share the beauty, compassion and catharsis of the performing arts when it is safe to do so once again.

Thank you so much for being a part of our ACT family.

Wishing you health and safety,

The Argenta Community Theater Team
