2020 MUSIC CIRCUS SEASON POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: SHOWS TO TAKE PLACE IN SUMMER 2021
Dear Music Circus Patron:
In the 70 years since the very first Broadway At Music Circus show, we’ve experienced a variety of changes and challenges. But never have we faced something as dire as the coronavirus pandemic, which is causing widespread disruption to every aspect of our being, threatening the lives and livelihood of millions.
It saddens me greatly to tell you this, but out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our patrons and employees, we are postponing the 2020 Broadway At Music Circus season for the first time in our 70-year history. Not knowing with any certainty whether it will be safe—or even allowed—for large groups of people to assemble as soon as June, we could not move forward with the complex preparations and significant financial commitments required to produce the season.
Therefore, the six shows scheduled for the 2020 season—Kinky Boots, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate, Annie, Monty Python’s Spamalot and The Color Purple—will now take place in the summer of 2021, beginning June 8 and taking place every other week.
For those of us dedicated to creating these productions for you to enjoy, this was an extremely painful decision. And as you can imagine, it creates a significant financial hardship for our company, a nonprofit whose very existence is dependent on the loyalty and generosity of our patrons and supporters.
It is with that in mind that, if you have already purchased season tickets for 2020, I’m asking you to commit right now to the 2021 Broadway At Music Circus season. If you’d like to enjoy those same six shows in 2021, we will apply your season ticket purchase to next year’s season. Even though we anticipate that ticket prices will need to increase to meet inflation, we will honor the price you paid for both your season tickets and any extra single tickets you purchased.
By making this commitment now, season ticketholders will help ensure that Broadway At Music Circus can continue for another 70 years, allowing future generations the opportunity to enjoy the magic of theatre-in-the-round just as you do.
With your support and loyalty, we will get through this. And when we emerge, we’ll once again come together to enjoy the art form that we all cherish—and that Broadway At Music Circus has provided to the Sacramento community since 1951.
Broadway Sacramento President, CEO
