It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the cancellation of the BHS Players production of The Addams Family Musical originally scheduled for March 19, 20, & 21.
We are all disappointed that the student’s hard work will not come to fruition. It is heartbreaking!!! We entertained the possibility of a July show, but as we listened to our Governor, saw all the groups cancelling summer activities and looked at how we as a team could manage all those pieces while keeping everyone safe, it just became apparent that our only option was to cancel.
Many people pre-bought tickets through our online third party ticketing company called Brown Paper Ticketing. The company promised that tickets would be refunded. The link to Brown Paper Tickets to request a refund is:
However, it has become apparent that Brown Paper Ticketing is in financial trouble. BHS Players have not received any ticketing money from them. In addition, refunds for tickets are not being delivered. We are not the only group affected by this problem. After investigation, it appears that hundreds of groups across the country are also not receiving ticket sale monies for completed shows as well as refunds for cancelled shows. We want to be clear that BHS Players did not receive any money from the ticket sales.
BHS players are financially supported through ticket sales, community advertising and gracious donations. We too have taken a severe financial hit, because we were unable to perform. This was due to loss of revenue from tickets, but also due to the costs incurred for performance materials, set building, costumes/makeup, publicity expenses etc.
We will, however, endeavor to create theatrical magic on stage again and look forward to seeing all our wonderful supporters, as soon as it is safe for our students, production team and audiences.
We thank you for all your support.
