Dear MPI Community,
As we continue to learn more about the COVID-19 health crisis, and public health officials forecast the coming months, the Mariemont Players board of directors has made the very difficult decision to cancel our May production of The Art of Dining.
As you know, there is currently a ban on gatherings of more than 100 people in the state of Ohio, and at this time, we don’t know when it will be lifted. Also, the CDC has recommended that organizations do not hold gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, which takes us into the middle of the run for The Art of Dining. This creates a significant amount of uncertainty and we refuse to risk the safety of our patrons, cast, and crew.
In this difficult time, many arts organizations are having to cancel their productions in the best interest of public health and safety. If you have tickets to a live performing arts event which is canceled due to COVID-19, please consider donating your ticket to the organization.
If you would like a refund for your tickets, we are more than happy to issue one. Please contact the box office at 513-684-1236 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like a refund. As it is tax season, our accountant is extremely busy, so we do ask that patrons requesting refunds allow us reasonable time to process each refund.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and we fully intend to be back on stage as soon as our public health officials declare it is safe to do so. Keep an eye on mariemontplayers.com, as well as our Facebook page, for updates.
Thank you for your continued and valued support of Mariemont Players. We look forward to seeing you at the theater as soon as possible.
President, MPI Board of Directors
