HSRT's 49th Season Suspended Due to COVID-19
Hope College has made the very difficult decision to postpone Season 49 out of concern for the safety of our employees, patrons and community. While we are disappointed we will not be bringing you a vibrant summer of theatre for the first time in our 49-year history, we will be using this time to look for ways to keep you and our entire community connected to the arts in these uncertain times and to bring you a very special season in the summer of 2021.
As many of you have purchased season tickets or single tickets and have chosen your seats, we are offering you the following options:
- A full refund of your season ticket/ticket purchases.
Note: Many of our Early Bird subscribers purchased their tickets more than six months ago, so we are not able to offer a credit card refund. We can refund your purchase by check. Given the governor's orders not to be at work, please be aware that it will be several weeks before we can get that check to you.
- Roll your purchases over to the 2021 season. You will again have the opportunity to choose your seats early once the dates and season are announced.
- Designate your ticket purchase as a tax-deductible donation to HSRT. As you may know, theatres and arts organizations are being hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis, and HSRT is no exception. As a theatre that relies heavily on future ticket sales to fund pre-season preparations, your donation would help us cover those costs. You will receive a confirmation of your tax-deductible gift several weeks after Hope College employees return to work
If you purchased tickets from us, you will receive a letter from us in the mail, but you may speed up the process by completing the Ticket Response Form. This will be a much quicker option, as the ticket office director, Mike Howes, will be able to process these remotely. Please bear with us as we navigate this unusual situation.
If you signed up for an Education Program you will receive a 100% refund on the credit card you registered with in a few weeks.
We are grateful to each one of you for your ongoing support of HSRT and we look forward to welcoming you back to the theatre for the 2021 Season.
We will do our best to communicate with you via email, our website and social media as we move forward.
In the meantime please feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns you may have. If you have ticket questions, please contact Mike Howes via email at email@example.com.Ticket Response Form
We need your support to continue providing exciting and meaningful theatre experiences for our community. Consider giving a gift to support Season 50!
