COVID-19 and Bellingham Theatre Guild

Posted April 30, 2020:

Dear Friend of BTG:

I hope this letter reaches you well and safely burrowed into your home. These are indeed strange times we live in!

Those of us on Bellingham Theatre Guild’s board of directors have been struggling with how to plan for the Guild’s future. You know that our final two shows of the 2019-2020 Season were slated to be THE SMELL OF THE KILL and INTO THE WOODS. We were poised to open SMELL OF THE KILL in late March…the set was built, costumes were ready, and cast was anticipating opening night when Governor Inslee asked all of us to STAY SAFE and STAY HOME.

We still intend to produce THE SMELL OF THE KILL, but when? There are so many unknowns: When will the public health experts tell us we can again gather in large groups? When will our audiences feel safe to gather in groups? Until then, the best we can do is to state our intentions and be ready to adjust our plans according to changing circumstances.

Our intentions as of this writing:

Produce THE SMELL OF THE KILL in June
Produce INTO THE WOODS in September
Honor your tickets to either or both shows
Refund your ticket price if you prefer; contact us at ticketing@bellinghamtheatreguild.com
Announce our plans for next season by mid-summer

We feel blessed by your ongoing support of our community. We’ll do our best to keep you informed. Stay well. Stay safe. Stay home.

Lynn Starcher, President
Bellingham Theatre Guild
