NSU Theatre COVID-19 Update
NSU Theatre Patrons,
Tonight, moments from now, would have been opening night for our production of In the Heights. Student actors, singers, dancers, musicians and stage managers were in the full swing of rehearsals to prepare for today — before the necessary precautions for COVID-19 were enacted. We initially hoped to postpone the production and then it became clear cancellation was the only option. We tried to hold on to the show because revenue from productions go towards supporting our activities and helping to provide scholarships for students. It is for that reason that we ask you to consider letting your purchase remain to support those efforts. Of course, if that is not of interest or an option for you at this time, we certainly understand. Should you wish to receive a refund for In the Heights, please follow the instructions below. However, if you are able to support the company and our students, nothing further needs to be done. Either way, we thank you so much for your support and patronage of NSU Theatre Company and the Drama & Theatre Program!
We have decided to move forward with, and enhance, the 2020 NSU Theatre Awards. When we are able to gather again and determine a date, the awards show will be the first event we present. It will now include a season launch announcement in addition to the regular performances and food. Those in attendance will be the first to hear the new season of shows and be able to subscribe to Season 7 that same night, before subscriptions are available to the general public. This exclusive event will remain only available to current awards show ticket holders — who happen to be the people who bought the first 355 season subscriptions for Season 6.
Also postponed will be the presentation of the Pulitzer Prize winning drama A Soldiers Play. NSU Theatre Company and Virginia Arts Festival commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the ending of World War II with this thrilling murder mystery drama. The original New York production by the Negro Ensemble Company launched the careers of Denzel Washington and Samuel L. Jackson and got rave reviews from The New York Times. Dates for the rescheduling will be announced as soon as possible.
Although we are still presenting both The 2020 NSU Theatre Awards and A Soldiers Play, we understand that needs and priorities may have changed due to present circumstances and want to extend refund opportunities to patrons who have tickets to these events as well. Should you wish to receive a refund for either of these two events, please follow the instructions below.
Again, we thank you for your support and wish you all peace during this time of uncertainty! BEHOLD! THE GREEN & GOLD!
