BELOVED MELODIES and BANDSTAND Cancelled at Cincinnati Music Theatre

cmt_logoDear Cincinnati Music Theatre Members and Donors,

Due to uncertainty related to the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we are sorry to inform you that our shows planned for the fall of this year, including Beloved Melodies in the Fifth Third Bank Theater in September and Bandstand in the Jarson-Kaplan Theater in November, have been cancelled. The shows we have planned for Spring 2021 will be re-evaluated on a show-by-show basis as time passes and we monitor the continued effects of the virus.

We are grateful to each and every one of you for your ongoing support of CMT. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available, but for now we request your patience as we wait. We have high hopes of presenting a full season in 2021-22.

The Arts connect us all and this is #OnlyIntermission. We need these connections now more than ever. Please stay safe and connected to each other during this trying time.

Warmest regards,
Cincinnati Music Theatre Board of Trustees
Peter B. Merten, President
