4/2/20 For immediate release
Update on Westfield High School's production of Shrek the Musical, originally scheduled for 3/19/20 - 3/21/20.
Officially, the show is postponed. It is not canceled. Since all Indiana schools will operate remotely for the rest of the school year, Shrek the Musical will not be able to be rescheduled until schools are allowed to have such events, which will be determined by the State of Indiana. This means that there is a possibility that Shrek the Musical might not be scheduled until after the start of next school year. If that happens, the directors realize that many on cast and crew who are part of the graduating class of 2020 will not be able to perform with us. We know that will be devastating for many students. Nevertheless, the show must go on, especially since much time and money has been invested in the set and other technical aspects of the production. As soon as we are able to reschedule performances, we will announce the new performance dates.
If you have purchased tickets for Shrek the Musical, we hope that you can postpone any action until after the show has been rescheduled. However, if there is anyone who has purchased advance sale tickets, but now needs to be refunded, you may request a refund by contacting Director Rhonda Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep the cast and crew of Shrek the Musical in your hearts during this difficult and unprecedented time. These talented and dedicated students have been working tirelessly since January to produce this show, and were only one week away from opening night when Westfield Washington Schools made the prudent decision to go to eLearning. To not be able to present all of their hard work to their ticketholders has been beyond devastating. We hope to see you in our audience soon, and thank you for supporting the performing arts in your community!
