ActorsNET joins our brothers and sisters in our community and across the nation in mourning the death of George Floyd and the many other unjust deaths of people of color. We are inspired by the worldwide outpouring of grief and hope, the insistence that it is well past time to address and eliminate the entrenched evil of racism. We recognize the inequalities and sing out in unison that Black Lives Matter.

The arts have a unique opportunity to contribute to this change. Through our art, we explore and enact not just our own lives and hearts, but also the lives and hearts of others who suffer from racial and social injustice, fear, and deprivation. As award-winning playwright August Wilson wrote, "Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing." Now is the time for all of us to help the angels learn to sing.

In these pivotal times it is not easy to believe in the ability of humankind to become better, stronger, and more just--but we recognize the moral obligation to try. As a local theater in a diverse community we recognize we must do more to diversify our theater. While our theater is temporarily closed due to the pandemic we have been working behind the scenes to enact changes to The NET; we pledge to incorporate more works by artists of color, promote and elevate the voices of the disenfranchised, and bring more people of color to our stage.

As Shakespeare wrote, "We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

MESSAGE FROM OUR MANAGEMENT!

ActorsNET Family,

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak the ActorsNET Board convened this week to discuss our options for the remainder of our season. As always, the health and safety of our patrons, casts, crews and staff is our top priority.

In consideration of guidance received from federal, state, and local officials and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the extremely difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our 2019 - 2020 season. All shows and events through June are cancelled. Additionally, faced with the likelihood that group gathering restrictions will continue into the early summer, we have also decided to cancel this year's Summer Stars program.

We hope to reopen the NET stage as soon as CDC guidelines make it financially viable to gather in groups large enough to accommodate rehearsals and performances. Shows that didn't make it to the stage in this season will be given top priority in planning for the future.

In the coming days our season ticket holders will be contacted. We are offering the choice to either donate the remainder of the season ticket or exchange it for future productions. Summer Stars deposits that have been received at the NET will be returned.

As a non-profit all-volunteer organization, we rely completely on ticket sales and donations from our many patrons. With our doors shuttered, our principal income source - ticket sales - has been denied us. This crisis will stretch our little theater's resilience to its limits, but we have weathered over two decades of storms and pledge to do our best to win through to the other side of this one. It is now more important than ever that you consider sending in a donation to help keep us afloat while our theater is dark. If we've ever entertained, challenged, inspired or delighted you with our work, now is the time to reaffirm your appreciation by helping us out as generously as you can.

Donations can be made on-line through our website or by sending a check made out to "Actors' NET" to The Heritage Center Theatre, 635 N. Delmorr Ave., Morrisville, PA 19067.

If you have any questions or concerns you can reach out to our box office at 215-295-3694 and leave a message or email us at actorsnet@aol.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

On behalf of the ActorsNET

Thank you,

Maryalice Rubins-Topoleski, President
Cheryl Doyle, Co-Founder/Artistic Director
Joe Doyle, Co-Founder/GM
