As you all know, we are in unprecedented times. Our planned production this summer of Mary
Poppins cannot take place as planned because of the coronavirus. The good news is we have secured the rights to produce the show in the summer of 2021.
However, we are not going to sit idle. We want to keep the spirit of AVP alive and also honor the many people who are on the front lines of fighting the coronavirus. The AVP creative team has been at work to try to plan a fun event that will be safe for all (both cast, crew and audience). What we are proposing to do is present an online event which will be produced online on our former opening night, Tuesday, August 4. We will produce several songs and dances from Mary Poppins, filmed in people’s homes and solo on the AVP stage, to honor the importance of arts during this pandemic and to keep all of us who love being involved in a show active this summer.
If you have any interest in being involved, please email Terry at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know of your interest. We are working on the program and think it will be fun for everyone. We will also get an early preparation for Mary Poppins next summer. I look forward to hearing from you as we creatively plan our summer program.
