Performances: CANCELLED due to COVID-19

As difficult as it is, I am forced to announce the cancellation of the Grand Rapids Player's production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This decision has been made only after exhausting every avenue that myself and the Player's Executive Board could come up with to salvage this show. It is now confirmed that there is no possibility of gaining the kind of access to the Reif theaters that would be required to pull off a production of this size, at least until the first of the year. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Josh Cagle, Dan Carlson, the cast, the orchestra members and every member of the production crew that devoted months of their lives to bring this story to the stage. Obviously, you are not alone. Countless amateur and professional productions were shut down due to the Covid19 pandemic. What we as an organization are going to do to move forward, is to devote our energies to short, digital projects that can be produced and broadcast on a number of internet platforms. I encourage anyone with experience in digital production, short scripts (preferably not monologues) suitable for this type of production to submit them via GRPlayers.com, and I further encourage writers and performers to let us know if you are interested in participating in these productions in any other way that you might feel would allow the Players to expand our efforts in this direction. Once again, I can only guess at the depth of your disappointment in this cancellation, and I cannot thank the members of the Hunchback cast and crew enough. But together, the Grand Rapids Players will survive this, and come out the other side offering even more opportunities to the local theater public than ever before. Until we can look at an audience over the footlights again, stay safe and stay healthy. Thank you,
