Due to guidelines issued by the California Department of Public Health and California’s current ban on mass gatherings to curb the spread of COVID-19, Sierra Repertory Theatre officials have announced that their TBA Musical, Elf The Musical and Meet Me in St Louis: A Live Radio Play, in addition to previously announced shows and cabarets, are now cancelled.
“We share the disappointment of these cancellations with our audience, our artists, our creative teams, our staff and our students. SRT is committed to using this time to make necessary improvements to our spaces so that you can come back to the best version of SRT yet. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us get through this period until we are able to open our doors again,” said Scott Viets, Producing Artistic Director and Jerry Lee, Associate Artistic Director. “Cancelling a season is hard. We know that. The world has been through times like this before and theatre emerged triumphant. We are not planning on going anywhere soon but we need your help. Sierra Rep has served our community for forty years and we look forward to the next forty. Please continue to advocate for us, please donate, and please help us come back stronger than ever.”
Remaining dark through the summer has dealt a serious blow to SRT audiences, artists and the organization as a whole, officials said. But there are ways to help. If you have tickets to any of these productions, SRT officials ask that you donate the value back to Sierra Rep as a tax-deductible donation. Beyond donating your tickets back, they also strongly encourage donations to the Annual Fund to help them through this time.
Also, officials thanked several in the business community for their generous support. Those businesses include: A.L. Gilbert; Alicia’s Sugar Shack; Black Oak Casino Resort; Blue Mountain Mineral; Carlson and Associates CPA Inc.; Conifer Communications; Cutler Segerstrom Insurance Company; Downtown Shoes; Dr. McDonald DDS; Foothill Sierra Pest Control; Gianelli | Nielsen; Jamestown Vet Hospital; Live Oak Vet Hospital; Micro-Tronics; Middleton’s Brand; Mountain Bookshop; Oakdale Feed and Seed; Oak Valley Community Bank; Sierra Cardiology; Signature Salon and Spa; Sonora Lumber/Calaveras Lumber; State Farm Insurance – Dot Popovich; Suess Insurance and Investments; Todd Simonson – Edward Jones Investments; Tuolumne County Visitor’s Bureau; The Union Democrat; Visit Tuolumne County.
