Cincinnati Landmark Productions announces the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts.
We had hoped to have by now some realistic timeline that would allow us to rehearse and perform Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s 39th major summer project – even in limited ways.
We continue to have no such timeline: Theatrical performances are not allowed both indoors and outdoors. Without knowing when or how we can rehearse, costume, build sets and do the thousand other things necessary to make the CYPT summer project happen, we have to make this decision now.
Therefore, the auditions for Joseph…Dreamcoat on May 30, 31 and June 1 are cancelled as well.
We hope to keep our CYPT connections alive this summer in some other important ways. We are actively working with local officials to determine if/when smaller-scale outside concerts might be allowed, as well as exploring virtual performance options.
On behalf of the staff, board and volunteers of this organization, we sincerely and primarily hope you and yours are safe and healthy during this difficult time. Our profound gratitude goes out to medical professionals, first responders and other essential workers on the frontlines of this COVID-19 pandemic.
Cincinnati Landmark Productions has a long and storied history of theatrical success, starting in 1982 at Westwood Town Hall, to the Showboat Majestic, the Covedale and Incline theaters, and Madcap Education Center. CLP has done exciting things onstage and in the lives of its patrons. But it all started with Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre and the thousands of young performers, from scores of different schools, sharing the best summers of their lives together.
NEXT summer, the complete CYPT experience will be back – bigger, louder, faster, funnier and more true than ever before.
