With the invaluable help of our donors, Ashland Productions was able to continue working throughout the pandemic, offering online and limited in-person programming to keep our participants engaged, both with theater and each other. And we reopened to public performances as soon as we could safely do so, first at 50% capacity and then finally opening up to full houses. We've served hundred of youth and adult participants during this time, in ways we couldn't have even imagined before this time. And for that we thank you.
We hope we're getting closer to "normal," and to get there we need your generosity and support more than ever. The pandemic has resulted in absolutely stupefying financial losses for Ashland. Rather than closing down, we continued to create programming for the last year, even at a tremendous loss.
Your support is incredibly meaningful. Your gift is a lifeline to our youth participants, who simply could not wait to get back onstage. So we want to Thank You to the Max!
