Until we can safely gather again...
Due to the upswing in COVID-19 cases in Knox County, the Prairie Players Civic Theatre Board recently made the tough decision to postpone the planned production of A Night of One-Acts, scheduled to open this week. While our production committee is working hard to find a way to re-launch this production, we have decided to cancel our planned Christmas musical production in early December out of an abundance of caution.
While these decisions are necessary for the health of our community, they come at a cost. We depend on productions to help us pay the bills. During the course of the pandemic, we have postponed our spring and summer productions, drastically reduced capacity for what programming we have been able to host, and are now forced to cancel and postpone two more shows. All this causing a large reduction in income.
Thus far we have been able survive this challenge with the help of grants, a mortgage deferral, and individual donations. However, grant opportunities are limited and as generous as our bank has been, our deferral cannot continue. We need help from you.
How can you help?
By buying a ticket to Prairie Players Pandemic Survival. What does this mean? Donate at least $15, the cost of a ticket, to Prairie Players.
Our goal is to "sell out" - before the pandemic, a sold out performance for Prairie Players would mean $8640 in revenue - that's 576 $15 tickets - and this revenue will help ensure Prairie Players will be here to entertain you when we can safely gather again.
