Read the full statement below:
A note from Rhonda Schmidt, Executive Director of WCT:
Dear Patrons of Waukesha Civic Theatre,
I want to thank you for your patience and support while we work through this time of uncertainty and ever-changing news regarding the current health crisis. Even though our stage has temporarily gone dark, we will work to stay connected to you, our theatre family, through email and social media. The most beautiful element of the performing arts is how it connects us and provides relief, and in these uncertain times, it is connection and relief we need the most.
The Arts have provided respite and comfort in times of historical crisis, and this historic event is no different. What I ask is that you look ahead with me to what will be waiting for you when typical life resumes. When this virus has passed, we will be prepared to host you in our theatre home once again, to bring light and laughter to you in the form of theatre performance, education, music, and celebration. Until that time, we will continue to monitor the situation and plan accordingly.
The Board of Directors and I have carefully weighed our options and have made the following plan in the best interest, safety, and health of our patrons, volunteers, and staff.
Please continue to be patient, as this plan has been made with current information and may change as external factors change. We will keep you as quickly informed as possible.
