We regret to announce that due to the challenges presented by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and in light of ongoing restrictions placed upon performance theaters by the State of Ohio, we will be unable to present ASSASSINS in a way that would be safe for the health of our cast, crew, and audience. We know that this decision weighs especially heavily on our cast and crew who were so looking forward to producing this wonderful show, and we cannot thank them enough for their hard work and dedication.
The current environment is especially challenging for LTC and all theatres around the area as we grapple with how to continue fulfilling our mission to present quality theatre to our community while ensuring audience and cast safety and compliance with the law. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of uncertainty around when we will be able to return to normal operations, if ever. The LTC board of directors is committed to finding a way for LTC to survive and adapt to this “new normal” and find new and innovative ways to deliver theatrical entertainment and education to the community.
We want to be fully transparent at this time: this current climate presents a serious financial challenge for LTC, as we rely heavily on ticket revenue to maintain our operations. The historical generosity of our patrons and prudent financial management by our Board has allowed us to build a rainy day fund to weather difficult periods like this, but should this pandemic persist for several more months, the viability of LTC as an institution will be in serious jeopardy without significant public support.
Thank you as always for your support, especially during these very challenging times. And most importantly, stay safe, stay healthy, and help keep your community healthy.
