CPT’s 2020 Annual Board Election

CPT's 2020 Annual Meeting - Virtual Board Election As many of you know due to COVID-19 we had to postpone this year's annual meeting and Board election from April 2020 to May 2020. Since we are unable to meet in person, rather than push the election further out, we have decided to hold the election virtually. Electronic ballots will be sent via email on May 9 as a specialized link to all Members who are eligible to vote. They will have until 6pm May 11 to submit their ballot. (See below for eligibility.) We also usually share with our Members the annual treasurer's report, updates from our Board President, and other reports from various Board members. This information will be shared with our Members at a later date in a virtual format.

CPT's Production of Mamma Mia! is Now Pending Community Players Theatre would like to advise that the auditions and show dates for our production of Mamma Mia! are currently pending! Until the state’s “Shelter in Place” order is lifted and we have more details regarding how we will be able to reenter society, the Board of Governors and the production staff will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate other necessary options as more information becomes available. We know that the arts inspire hope and provide an escape from the everyday. The arts are perhaps needed now more than ever, to bring our community together, and keep us connected. We thank you for your understanding and patience at this time and we will keep you updated with any additional changes.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf - Postponed Until Further Notice Community Players Theatre is announcing the postponement of our next show, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf until the state’s “Shelter in Place” order is lifted and the production staff can evaluate options from there. Ticket sales will be suspended until further notice. The following statement was issued this evening, April 6, 2020, from the show’s director, Brett Cottone: We hope that you, your friends, and your family are safe and healthy. The Illinois shelter-in-place rules and staying at home have changed all of our lives. Live theatre isn’t very easy to rehearse or patronize while practicing social distancing. Community Players Theatre is all about social inclusion and that makes our mission very difficult at this time.
