Irish Classical Theatre Company Update
Irish Classical Theatre Company Update:
Updated March 30, 2020: The great playwright Oscar Wilde once said, “I regard theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with one another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
Today, we are reaching out to you to let you know how proud the Irish Classical Theatre Company is to be part of this community of human beings, in Western New York and beyond. We are inspired by your resolve and your resilience as we move forward through these trying times.
They say the Irish are dreamers, but they, and we, are pragmatists as well. Given the anticipated duration of the current crisis, after much soul-searching, and with the support of our Board of Trustees, we have decided to cancel the remainder of ICTC’s 2019-2020 Season.
By taking this decisive action, unprecedented in ICTC’s 29 year history, we hope to alleviate some of the uncertainty in this very uncertain world in which we find ourselves. Painful as this decision is, we consider it to be the only responsible response to the current health and economic crisis.
Although our theatre will be dark for now, we know that this is a necessary investment in the long-term well-being of our valued patrons. We now turn our attention, with the utmost excitement and enthusiasm, to the upcoming 30th Anniversary Season and are busily planning and preparing for next year.
Details of ICTC’s 2020-2021 Season will be sent to you in the coming weeks, and updates will be available on our website and on social media.
When these difficult days are behind us, we look forward to gathering safely with you again to regain and share our sense of humanity in the intimate space of ICTC’s Andrews Theatre.
Our hearts go out to all who have been touched by the current crisis, which has so changed the fabric of our lives; and sincerely believe that the healing power of The Arts will comfort and restore us, and bring us all home again soon.
Be well. Be safe.
Vincent & Kate and your Friends at the Irish Classical Theatre Company
