An update on Park Square’s response to COVID-19 — FOR ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS

To our Park Square Community,

In the hardest of times, you look to our shared humanity to find new sources of resilience and inspiration. While Park Square is suspending programming to support your health and the safety of the greater community, you are also inspiring innovative ways to continue to fulfill Park Square’s vital mission.

Your health will be protected in line with the latest CDC and Minnesota Department of Health recommendations through the following program changes:

  • Spring Mischief Gala — MAR 30 — postponed. Ticket holders will be informed of a later date. An online silent auction will happen in late March or early April.
  • Romeo and Juliet — APR 4 — cancelled. This classic will return in 2021 and we encourage patrons to see it next season!
  • Marie and Rosetta — APR 15-MAY 24 — postponed. We are investigating performance options in the months ahead.
  • The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society — April 20, May 11 — going online. Perhaps even more than other performances, these “live radio broadcasts” lend themselves to adaptation and we are exploring how to best make these delightful programs available to digital audiences.

This global crisis is preventing more than 16,000 students from attending performances of The Diary of Anne Frank and Romeo and Juliet.

To help educators and parents transition to distance learning, Park Square is working to make our programs — vibrant and relevant plays as well as live discussions with artists — available to students through online platforms. Working toward this goal serves students and employs artists (but does entail additional costs).

Your kindness and generosity make Park Square possible. By acting today, you can assure that the theatre thrives during these hard times.

You have these options for your cancelled performances:

  • Donate your tickets — Park Square has already invested in the shows that are postponed or cancelled, including paying local artists. You can help offset those costs by turning your ticket into a tax-deductible donation.
  • Exchange your tickets to another performance (we’ll all need a night out when this is over!)
  • Receive credit for the value of your tickets for future use — including the 2020-2021 Season.
  • Receive a refund. Refunds will be processed after the global pandemic has subsided.

Your love of live theatre and your generous support will protect Park Square during this unprecedented time.

Your Park Square artists are with you in spirit. We all look forward to the day when you return to the theatre for a feast of joy, fun, music and mystery. Thank you for your continued trust in and passion for Park Square.

All my best,
Michael-jon Pease
Executive Director
