WRONG WINDOW Cancelled at Beechmont Players

BPI_logoAs more information and government mandated bans are announced throughout the state in relation to the COVID-19 health crisis, the Beechmont Players board of directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our May production, WRONG WINDOW.

With the CDC’s recommendation of organizations to not hold gatherings of more than 50 people for the next several weeks, this interferes with the opening of Wrong Window. We refuse to risk the safety of our patrons, cast, and crew so cancelling this production is in our best interest all around.

In this trying time, dozens of organizations are having to cancel their productions in order to be in compliance with the mandates set by the State Department of Public Health. If you have tickets to a live performing arts event which is canceled due to COVID-19, including Beechmont Players, please consider donating your ticket to the organization.

If you would life a refund for your tickets, please call our box office at 513-233-2468 and we will be happy to assist you.

Thank you for your understanding in our decision and we hope to be back on stage here soon. Any future updates will be posted on our website, beechmontplayers.org, as well as our Facebook and Instagram pages.
