Dear Members & Friends of Wheaton Drama,
The health and wellbeing of our Wheaton Drama members and patrons is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, with an abundance of caution and respect for the necessity of social distancing, the Wheaton Drama Board of Governors has decided that Wheaton Drama will suspend all activities including classes, meetings, and performances until further notice.
As the pandemic crisis evolves, the Board of Governors has many decisions to make about how to proceed in the days, weeks, and months ahead. We will share those decisions with you as quickly as possible. Until then, we ask for your patience and understanding.
We are temporarily suspending the sale of tickets for our shows. If you have purchased tickets for Hauptmann and/or Peter and the Starcatcher, we ask you to hold on to them for now. When we determine when performances will be able to resume, rest assured that we will honor all previously purchased tickets. Please refrain from calling the ticket line at this time. Our ticket team members will contact you when we know when we will be able to resume performances. If exchanges need to be made, we will take care of those for you at that time.
We are suspending all education programs until further notice. If you are currently enrolled in a sign language class or have a child enrolled in the after school classes, our Education Governor will keep you informed about the status of classes. Again, your enrollment fees will be honored when classes are able to resume.
We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice of local, state, and national authorities. We will reassess our plans on an ongoing basis and try to keep you well informed. Please check our website, Facebook page, and your email for the latest updates.
Rest assured that your friends at Wheaton Drama will always proceed with your health and safety as our top priority. Hopefully, we will find a way to safely complete our 19-20 season and get back to bringing you the quality performances that you have come to expect as soon as possible. Your continued support as we wait for that time is most greatly appreciated.
With best wishes for a happy and healthy future for us all,
Julie Kanturek, President
Wheaton Drama, Inc.
