Dear Drama Families,
We are sad to announce the cancellation of our ticket sales for The Little Mermaid. If you pre-purchased tickets this year, please read below to understand your options.
You are, of course, able to receive a full refund of your ticket money. However, the Covid-19 crisis has created a difficult financial situation for our drama club; because the school closure occurred just before we started dress rehearsals, we had already spent (or contracted) thousands of dollars in royalties, set-building materials, costumes, sound equipment, theater lighting, and other necessities for the production. During a normal production year, the money we make from our ticket sales is enough to pay our expenses and reserve funds to put toward the following year. However, without ticket money from this year’s show, we will not be able to cover what we have outlaid, and without seed funds, our ability to continue the program is in jeopardy.
For this reason, as an alternative to a refund, we are asking families to consider donating their ticket purchase to the drama club in order to help offset the costs of this year’s production. Converting your ticket purchase into a tax-deductible donation would help us recoup our financial losses and help us continue to offer the valuable experience of drama to Martin Kellogg students in the future.
This being said, we understand that some families may not be in a position to donate. Please consider what is in the best interest of your family, then choose one of the following options:
ALL TICKET HOLDERS: Please email MKMSDrama@gmail.com with your choice (Option 1, 2, or 3) by Monday, May 18th so that we can process requests in a timely manner. Include the full name of the ticket purchaser, your child’s name (if applicable), the email address you used when you purchased the tickets, and your choice for donation and/or refund.
No matter which option you choose, you have our sincerest appreciation for your patience and consideration. We are grateful to have you as a part of our extended MKMS Drama Club family, and we hope to see you at future productions when it is safe to do so. Until then, thank you for being “Part of Our World”!
