To our Exit 7 Family and Friends,
Firstly, we hope that this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe, as that is the most important thing to us. The process of reopening the State of Massachusetts after Covid-19 is still unclear, but we want to provide you with an update from the Board of Directors regarding future events.
We previously announced that the summer 2020 youth production of “Newsies” was being postponed. Based on the response of many of our young company members, we have decided that “Newsies” will be our 2021 summer youth production. “Cinderella” will be postponed to a future date, hopefully summer 2022.
We recognize that much of the graduating class of 2020 has already missed out on proms, graduation ceremonies, spring sports and arts activities, etc. As such, we are extending the opportunity to audition for “Newsies” to those youth players who would have “aged out” of the youth company after summer 2020.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing public health crisis, it seems unlikely that we will be able to perform any live theatre at our venue with an audience until 2021. Therefore the Board of Directors has voted to move “Something Rotten” and “Tommy” to future dates in 2021. Specific dates will follow, dependent on our securing performance rights and on the availability of the production teams involved.
We hope to produce some virtual events and activities in the interim, and will announce information on that when it become available.
The Exit 7 Annual Meeting will still take place on June 28 at 1 p.m. via Zoom Video Conferencing. (Normally it would take place at the Theater, but we are unable to accommodate that due to the pandemic.) Active and new members or those wishing to participate and attend the meeting should message Board President Chris Climo at firstname.lastname@example.org
for login information. Nominations and by-law changes will be emailed and posted soon.
We appreciate your ongoing support and patience during this difficult time. We cannot wait to welcome you back to Exit 7 Theater for live entertainment again soon! Be well, and best wishes.
President, Exit 7 Board of Directors
