Dear Watermark Friends,
We hope that everyone is well and safe during these difficult times.
With the health of our audience members and our theatre company in mind, we have made the painful decision to cancel Watermark Theatre’s 2020 summer season.
We have been spending the past number of weeks trying to find new ways to present great classical theatre for you despite the limitations presented. Our dedicated stage crew and designers were scheduled to begin building sets, costumes and props on May 11 and rehearsals with the acting company were scheduled to begin on June 1. With current restrictions in place we can’t even get some of our team to the island! Making this decision is heart breaking for us but until it is safe to assemble in large groups again, we will have to keep the theatre’s doors closed.
That being said, we are a creative organization and we have a number of ideas on how to keep the theatre vital, vibrant and in your hearts and minds. In the months to come, we will explore opportunities to bring art to our community through our on-line presence or in partnership with other arts organizations and we will continue to share those ideas with you.
Rest assured that we will be back in the summer of 2021 with a wonderful slate of plays to entertain, delight, and provoke audiences once again. Theatre artists around the world are recharging their creative energies and reevaluating their place in the world, and will be back on stage with a new sense of purpose. Theatre has been around for 2500 years, through all kinds of world challenges, and will return again. Let us never take the act of assembly for granted ever again!
You will all be missed and we look forward to welcoming you back to the theatre!
Robert and Andrea
To our loyal 2020 Season Pass Holders, here are your options:
• Please consider donating the dollar value of your pass to our theatre. You will receive a charitable tax receipt in return and our eternal thanks for helping us at this time. Your support is now more important than ever.
• Use your pass for our 2021 season instead. We will keep the credit under your name for next summer and will contact you in spring 2021.
• The first two options are best for the theatre but, if need be, we will be happy to issue a refund excluding the service fees.
