covid-19 - Letter from the executive Committee of Stagestruck

To our families, patrons and supporters of StageStruck,

After much heartache and deliberation, the Executive Committee of StageStruck has made the very difficult decision to postpone our fall production. The continued health risks related to COVID-19, coupled with the current restrictions on gatherings, and the financial load inherent in taking on a full production in these conditions have led to this decision. However, we do plan to push that much-anticipated production to a future (yet undetermined) date, hopefully within this show season or the next.

For now, we will focus our energies on looking forward! Our piano and voice lessons are being held virtually and slots are filling fast, but some are still available. We have had a very successful costume room project and are currently scheduling volunteer days for yard help, studio cleaning and various fundraising opportunities. Additionally, we are hoping to offer some ways to participate in small group and virtual experiences.

Finally, our annual patron drive will begin soon. This year, perhaps more than any other, we will earnestly rely on the continued support of our generous donors. StageStruck's roots are in volunteerism and in people organizing and giving of their time, talents and monetary gifts with a common goal for supporting the youth of Wayne County and surrounding areas as they pursue the arts. Whether it is a performance, a class or a summer camp, StageStruck aims to continue to provide rich experiences and lasting bonds for students and families. We are thirty years strong, and despite this pause in our plans, we will continue to work tirelessly to fill the studio with creativity, dancing and voices and to raise the curtain again! We appreciate you all!

With warmest regards,

The Executive Committee of StageStruck
