Dear MAC Friends,
I wanted to take a moment to check in with you. I hope you are all keeping your spirits up, doing well and in good health during this stay at home order. I have great hope and confidence that the world's scientists and doctors will find a cure or vaccine soon. And am so amazed to see how the world is improvising and coming together through this difficult time.
The MAC staff are all working from home, and we are all doing well. Our costume designer, Kim Morris made us all very cool masks and the college donated all their protective gear and masks from the nursing program to local hospitals in need. We meet as a full staff at a zoom conference twice a week and smaller groups weekly. We are planning for next season, and I recently conferenced with Maestro Muspratt and Paula Cebula, who have BIG plans for New Philharmonic next season, and it will be the best lineup ever!
Connie Canaday Howard and the BTE ensemble have three exciting plays coming to you, and it's going to be a wonderful series full of laughs and heart. As far as the touring season goes, I can't wait to share the fantastic talent who is coming to us next year. I am looking for uplifting and diverse talent that will help to heal and inspire.
We are figuring out how to unroll all this to you as we work remotely and getting the brochure pulled together! Today we talked about how much we miss being at the shows, and how much we miss you, our extended MAC family. I know that we will get through this, and I know we will all be back together in time. Until then, stay well, my friends!
