Adventures of Tom Sawyer Update

April 3, 2020

Our designers have made the set, costumes and props and are storing them until we can load in. The play is rehearsed, on-hold and ready to go. The actors are waiting to get the call for “pick-up rehearsals” .The audience has made their reservations and are “holding” until we get the “go ahead.” It seems we are all waiting in the wings to go on, but all we can do is to take a deep breath and wait for our “cue” and the stage lights will go on. 
Yes we are ready and anxious to go on stage, but once we get the “go ahead” we still will have a lot of things to work out coordinating the dates with 40 cast/crew/band members, Neighborhood House, and designers. Once this is in place, we will get in touch with all of our tickets holders and let you know our plans. As you can imagine, it is an extremely shaky time for small arts organizations such as CB Productions and I thank you so much for your constant love, support and your patience. All I can do is JUST BREATHE.

My Dear CB Productions Theater Family,

CB Productions’ highest priority is protecting the health and safety of our audience, cast/crew, designers, volunteers, and the general public that make up our community. We spent the last several days monitoring and working on developing the best response to the acceleration of the COVID-19 virus; thus, at the recommendation of the MN Department of Health and Governor Tim Walz, we are postponing ALL performances of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” to a later date. 

As you know we cannot predict the future of this virus, and we are unable to  give you a definite rescheduled date at this time; however, we are optimistically targeting the dates between the end of April through the end of June, 2020. Once we have firmed up the new dates and times, you will be the first to know! We will send you another email with details on how to transfer your current ticket reservation to the new schedule that works best for you. Yes! All current reservations will be honored. 

We believe this is the best solution to a very difficult situation and I beg that you PLEASE BE PATIENT AND REMAIN FLEXIBLE as we work through the many moving pieces of organizing this postponement and navigate through these uncharted waters. 

Until you hear from us again: be safe, stay healthy and be smart – follow the guidelines of the CDC and WHO. We need to work together now to combat this extremely difficult situation. 

I will see you again soon at our Theatre!

Carla Barwineck
CB Productions Artistic Director
