Dear Valued Peacock Players Community:
After the devastating cancellation of our 2020 season, we have taken great pride in our continuing commitment to provide essential theatre arts engagement for our students and patrons throughout the pandemic. In addition, we are taking great care in planning a safe and an exciting 2021 summer season and upcoming year.
As the situation dictates, our plans are a work in progress. The safety of our patrons, students and staff is always our first priority, and that responsibility informs every aspect of our planning. We must ensure that the programming we provide will continue, in an ever-evolving situation, to meet the directives of public-health authorities. Our challenge is to mount an eventual re-opening that conforms to the need for physical distancing and other pandemic-era realities, while still offering unparalleled theatrical experiences.
With every challenge comes opportunity. The pandemic has forced us to re-examine every assumption about our art, to explore every conceivable option, to ask ourselves profound questions about the essence of our work and the nature of the bond between our young artists and our audiences. Those are the kinds of challenges that spark innovation, adventure, and new creative energy.
The cancellation of our 2020 season will always leave an aching void in our hearts. As we look ahead to welcoming you back in this new year, and to the new possibilities this brings, we feel a great affinity toward our ever-growing Peacock Players Family.
We thank you for standing with us throughout this time, and we look forward to unveiling our plans for 2021 in the coming months.
Keith Weirich, Artistic Director,
The Peacock Players Board of Directors & Staff
