Dear Friends and Members of River Company,
We began 2020 very excited to bring you a season full of delightful, Maine-themed shows, but due to the spread of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, we feel it is best to modify our season in order to protect our wonderful community.
It is with a heavy heart that we postpone our spring production of “Homer Bound” by Karmo Sanders. Rather than do another Summer Shakespeare, we will instead focus on producing “Homer Bound” for an early fall production.
Right now, everything is very fluid and we are doing our best to monitor the situation and follow CDC recommendations and will continue to do so into the future. We still plan to send out our annual newsletter, just later this spring than usual. We still plan to have a children’s workshop in the fall and a holiday fundraiser in December.
River Company is so thankful for all our members, fans and supporters. Please stay tuned for more information going forward. We will try to keep everyone as up to date, via social media and email, as much as possible.
The Show Will Go On.
Mallory Adams - President of River Company
