A Note About the Cancellation of Seussical
Arlington Children’s Theater’s winter musicals are the biggest shows of our annual season. The decision to close our production was the right choice given the health risks of this novel coronavirus and the contagion factor in group gatherings. There is, unfortunately, a cost to the bottom line of the organization. As a not-for-profit organization, we depend on show revenues, in particular revenue generated by our winter musical, to support theater programming for young people throughout the year. In addition to the need to cover our expenses for this production, we estimate that the show closure has resulted in a $20,000 loss in expected funding.
At this time, we are asking you to please consider making a donation to Arlington Children’s Theatre in order to ensure that our organization remains viable. A small donation, such as the price of a show ticket, or a larger donation from those who have the means to do so, would be greatly appreciated. Together we can insure that Arlington Children’s Theatre is able to achieve its mission to provide exceptional youth theater programming for years to come.
