Morpheus Theatre’s Response to Covid-19

Posted Mar 16, 2020

As I am sure each one of you has been doing, I have been closely following the news over the last few weeks, and especially the rapidly changing environment over the last few days. The current restrictions from Alberta Health Services, and the local state of emergency declared by the City of Calgary, requires Morpheus to take active steps to protect our patrons, volunteers, artists, participants, and staff.

Effective immediately, Morpheus Theatre will be suspending our season until it is safe and prudent to resume. Performances of The Pirates of Penzance will be postponed to a future date TBD. This is our 25th Season finale and the show will go on.

While our production was still over 6 weeks away, this pandemic impacts all of us on a daily basis. Morpheus Theatre wanted to ensure that we followed the recommendations of the province and city by limiting personal contact, not just at a performance, but also at rehearsal. Due to the size of the cast and crew, and the nature of theatre, we could not support social distancing and requests for individuals to stay at home, while continuing to hold rehearsals.

In addition, this affects our other programs as follows:
– Classes for the G&S Juniors will be suspended, and will resume later in the year. The plan is for the G&S juniors to still perform the year end performance.
– Classes for Voices in our Head will be suspended.
– Our Design Workshop scheduled for this weekend will be postponed until a date later in the season.
– With the Pumphouse Theatre temporarily closing the facility through March 31st, the One-Act Play Festival and our production of The Shift by Kurt Archer has been postponed.

When the time comes to move forward with the production and rehearsal process, we will be in contact with all of our volunteers, artists, and patrons.

Sincerely,
Sean Anderson
Artistic Director / Executive Producer
