Regretfully, we have concluded that our only option is to postpone the 54th season until summer 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We waited and watched as many other theatres cancelled their season, just hoping that things would get better and we could continue as normal. As you all know, this time is anything but normal and it became evident that we had to make the difficult decision to break tradition this year. Our company members come from all over the United States, and at this time we knew bringing them together was not a responsible choice. Their safety and the safety of our audience is our primary concern. As much as it breaks our hearts, we want you all to know we thought of our patrons every step of the way.
BVT is remarkable in so many ways, but mostly in its resilience. It will survive this too, but not without you. If you have contributed towards our 2020 season, we will honor your name in the 2021 program as well as your contributor tickets, which will be sent out in 2021. This will be a trying time for BVT’s finances. If you can make any further contributions, anything you can give will greatly help with our recovery. If you have any questions, please call 402-825-4121 and we will answer them to the best of our abilities.
As soon as we can call the theatre a safe space again, we will open those white double doors and return to our normal: Making Great Theatre! Until then, please keep BVT in your thoughts and prayers during this uncertain time for the arts.
Be safe and we will see you all soon.
