It was with a broken heart that we had to make the decision to close the RTB for a minimum of two weeks. The only comfort in this is the knowledge that it is the right thing to do and we are ALL in this together. The safety of our patrons, students, staff, casts and crews and our contribution to making sure we do our part to “flatten the curve” is imperative.
We are acutely aware of the impact that COVID-19 is having on all sectors of our economy and society, and the RTB is no exception.
It goes without saying that the loss of these performances is financially devastating to our lovely theater. As a matter of fact, 80% of our operating budget comes from ticket and programming sales.
As a ticket holder for our One Acts 2020, we are writing to you about what you can do with your tickets.
We are hoping that our patrons will consider keeping their tickets with us, for use at a future One Acts performance, or another RTB show OR convert them into a straight, tax deductible donation. Either option will make it possible for the RTB to make it through this uncharted, challenging time and emerge ready to offer our usual fare of critically acclaimed, award winning productions.
Of course, if you prefer a refund, we understand and will process that for you.
Please let me know what you would like to do, and as always, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. We will all navigate this better if we are kind and supportive and keep communication open. Be well.
