Dear Four County Players community,

As I am writing this, we are one week into the extreme social isolation being mandated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The world around us, our plans, and our regular routines have all been disrupted by the pandemic.

Last weekend, the leadership of Four County Players made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining performances of The Mousetrap. On Sunday, the production team and cast of Cellar in Blue, our April Songs in the Cellar installment, said farewell to the plans and dreams they had for that production.

Today, Sunday, March 22, I am sad to announce that we have taken the subsequent step of canceling the May production of Mamma Mia!, thereby bringing our 47th season to an abrupt close. We had hoped that waiting a week would give us better clarity about how the coronavirus will affect events further out, but it has become clear that restrictions on groups of more than 10 people are not going to be ending soon enough for us to get the show ready by May 15.

Mamma Mia! is a musical that we had been looking forward to having on our stage for a long time, and it is shocking that it will not be happening this year. While we considered many options for trying to fit it into a new slot in the near term, the best we can say right now is that we hope to get it back on our schedule again in a future season.

I hope that you and your families will keep yourselves safe and sane during this unprecedented time. Please know that your Four County Players family will be ready to welcome everyone back for more quality community theater as soon as we are able.

In solidarity,
Debbie Owen
President
