Dear Season Ticket Holders,
Fond du Lac Community Theatre (FDLCT) strives to bring quality, live entertainment to the Fond du Lac community and surrounding area; however, we are also committed to the safety of our artists, volunteers, and, of course, our patrons. As previously communicated, FDLCT was excited to have been successful in rescheduling Mamma Mia, originally planned for April 23-26, 2020, to September 10-13, 2020.
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 has continued to evolve, our response has continued to evolve as well. While we want our talented cast and crew to be able to showcase their hard work to the masses, we want to ensure we are as safe as possible in doing so and, therefore, have found it necessary to postpone Mamma Mia again. We are looking forward to being able to present Mamma Mia in June 2021 when, hopefully, concerns surrounding the pandemic will have subsided.
While we anticipate rescheduled performances, we understand June 2021 is still ten months away and our current plans, like everything else in a pandemic, may continue to be subject to change. Because of this, the Board of Directors has had to make some tough decisions for our organization and our doors will remain closed through the 2020 calendar year.
To avoid additional future adjustments and confusion, tickets for Mamma Mia and previously granted credits for Grease will be rescinded. We want to sincerely thank the season ticket holders who had already donated the cost of their Grease ticket(s) back to FDLCT.
All season ticket holders for Mamma Mia and season ticket holders who opted for a credit for Grease will have two options:
- We can refund the cost of your Mamma Mia ticket and Grease credit ($16.00/ticket/show) to you.
- You can donate the value of your Mamma Mia ticket and Grease credit ($16.00/ticket/show) as a gift to Fond du Lac Community Theatre. If you choose to do this, you will help support our organization during this time in which we have, quite literally, closed our doors. We will happily provide you a donation receipt for your tax-deductible gift.
Your next steps:
- Please fill out the Season Ticket Holders form by Monday, September 7, 2020 to communicate your choice to either receive a refund or make a donation.
- If we have not heard from you by midnight on Monday, September 7, 2020, we will automatically process a refund.
Further, because of this extended closure, we are likely looking at a condensed 63rd FDLCT Season and will not be selling season ticket packages for 2020-2021. We recognize that our season ticket holders are some of our most ardent supporters and we do not want to minimize your continued backing of our organization. In the event we can present shows in the remainder of the season in 2021, we will continue to offer our current season ticket holders the ticket discount they currently enjoy ($4.00/ticket). Further, season ticket holders will enjoy early access to ticket sales before they go on sale to the general public so you can continue to enjoy the premium seats you already love. If we have the opportunity to see any shows come to fruition, more information will be communicated to you at that time on how to enjoy these perks.
If you have any questions, we encourage you to message us through Facebook Messenger, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 920.923.2206 (please leave a message with Megan if we do not pick up). We will do our best to get back to you in a timely fashion.
We appreciate your continued kindness, patience, and understanding as we continue to navigate this truly once-in-a-lifetime situation. The show will go on…just a little later than anticipated.
Fond du Lac Community Theatre Board of Directors Secretary
