Looking Forward to 2021

Dear Friends of Pickerington Community Theatre,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope this finds each of you well. The Pickerington Community Theatre (PCT) Board of Directors wanted to provide you with an organizational update and wish each of your a happy holidays. 

It has been nine months since we’ve been able to gather with you, our theatre family. We miss you. We were really excited for the 2020 season, our annual picnic, and more.

Some of you were able to join us as PCT presented The Magic Tree House Pirates Past Noon. If you were able to join us, we hope that you enjoyed the show and all of the efforts by a great group of kids. Unfortunately, it was between performance weekends when Governor DeWine mandated safety precautions that resulted in PCT cancelling the second weekend of performances.

Since then there have been several plans made, and several plans cancelled. Although sadness comes with each cancellation, the Board of Directors to re-opening and bringing local live theatre back to our community, we will only do so when safe to do so.

In early November PCT was honored to accept a CARES Act subgrant from the Violet Township Board of Trustees in the amount of $4,128. These dollars have been used to directly offset storage expenses incurred by the theatre during the pandemic.

The Board of Directors continues to meet monthly to conduct the business of the theatre and to make plans for 2021.

While we have been unable to gather, we hope that you have found a way to stay virtually connected to your PCT friends. If not, now is a perfect time to connect with them, share a laugh and wish them a happy holidays.

If you are looking for ways to bring a little theater into your life, check out the listings below and let us know on our Facebook page what you enjoy.

We thank you for your continued support of Pickerington Community Theatre. We look forward to seeing all of you at the theater when we can safely gather again. We’ve got some great things planned for 2021, and look forward to you being a part of it.

Happy holidays!
 
Stay safe,

PCT Board of Directors
