FALL 2020 PROGRAMMING PLAN

With everything related to the 2020/21 school year being so up in the air, our plan for the September through December period is to allow schools and presenters to figure out what their year will look like in terms of public gatherings for winter and spring, and then work with our school partners to come up with presentation methods that are built around safety for our performers as well as audiences. There are a number of different production styles under review, including solo performer in the classroom and streaming options, but we realize that until the actual school day process is more defined, that live performances will be far down the list of considerations for schools and districts.

Any deposits already submitted for shows cancelled by the state's mandated shutdown in spring 2020 will be credited towards re-booked performances when circumstances allow.

We've already committed to retaining the artists who were employed during the 2019/20 season for their productions, and will be retaining all of the shows currently offered for at least one more year.

The fall showcases and expos we usually do (Arts Midwest and Premier Showcase) will be virtual this year, and we'll be participating as exhibitors. We're not planning on printing a full fall catalog of performances, as we usually do, but will have a new catalog ready as there is a clearer picture of what opportunities for live performance will look like during the upcoming calendar year.
