BOTG ANNOUNCES THE CANCELLATION OF THEIR 2020/21 SEASON
" We may be dark, but we will return brighter than ever!"
BurlOak Theatre Group has made the difficult but necessary decision, based on the closure of the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts and given the circumstances surrounding the current health pandemic, to cancel our 2020/2021 Season, which included productions of Mamma Mia!, An Ideal Husband, and Matilda The Musical.
We are grateful to our subscribers for the continued patience and kindness you have shown during this challenging time for our organization. Please know your seats are safe with us. You will have first priority to them for our 2021/2022 Season. If you have already purchased a subscription the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts Box Office will be in contact with you to arrange a full refund or, if you wish, to donate to BOTG to help us with the long term impacts and costs for us to maintain during the closure. As a non-profit arts organization, these devastating losses have a tremendous and lasting financial impact on our organization.
The decision to reopen theatres will be made based on government and scientific advice on gatherings and events. If it is safe for all to return in the new year we will look at producing a show.
For the moment BOTG will be putting time and attention into finding performances that we can do safely online, virtually or distanced. We want to keep our members involved and performing as much as possible, but in a new, safe way. Stay connected to us to learn more and see what opportunities come up.
We are anxious for the time when we can all be back together again safely, and when it is we will rush back to the studio and book the theatre! We will be back and we can’t wait to have you there with us.
Please stay safe, enjoy the summer, be well with your family and bubble. Thank you again for being a valued part of the BOTG family. We may be dark but we will return brighter than ever!
