An important message regarding are upcoming shows and classes
Looking forward, I am confident that our discipline at this time will benefit our local, national, and world cultures in ways we most likely will never be able to measure. We at The Actors Studio of Newburyport are committed to following all safety protocols available to us.
To confirm: we are cancelling all classes and programming for the next four weeks (through April 17, 2020). We will follow government guidelines moving on beyond that time. I know we all will miss the vibrant and stimulating encounters that we have come to rely on that inspire and satisfy our creative imaginations.
We are exploring ways to stay connected through social media – so keep alert to our Constant Contact E-blasts and our Take 5 Newsletter for ways to stay involved.
1918 message from Provincetown Players Founder
At the time the U.S. entered World War One, George Cram Cook wrote:
“One faculty, we know, is going to be of vast importance to the half-destroyed world – indispensable for it’s rebuilding: the faculty of creative imagination. That spark of it which has given this group of ours such life and meaning as we have is not so insignificant that we should now let it die. That social justification which we feel to be valid now for makers and players of plays is that they shall keep alive in the world the light of imagination. Without it the wreck of the world that was cannot be cleared away and the new world shaped.”
We remain committed to the cultural and artistic vitality of our community and anticipate much great innovation during this time of uncertainty.
With deep appreciation for everyone’s participation in our classes and programming.
