Olympic Theatre Arts announces ticket options, online ‘performances’

SEQUIM — Olympic Theatre Arts is canceling its upcoming production, and the board of the nonprofit is looking to give its thespians and theater-goers a sense of community with some online resources.

The Olympic Theatre Arts (OTA) board of trustees announced Thursday that “A Facility for Living,” scheduled to open Friday, May 1, will not open as planned.

“If OTA is able to gear up and present this play this season, it will,” the organization said in a press release.

It also is anticipated that the last play of the season, “Let Me Down Easy,” will be canceled, they said.

Ticket-holders for both of these shows have some options:

• Donate the price paid for the tickets back to OTA as a charitable tax-deductible contribution; no action is required, and if the show goes on this season, patrons will keep their seats.

• Request a refund for the price of one or both of the shows.

• Request a replacement voucher for one or both shows, good for one ticket to any show in the 2020-21 season.

Though the box office is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, patrons may either leave voice messages at 360-683-7326 or email to [email protected] with requests for more information.

Online performances

OTA’s annual Shakespeare Renaissance Faire fundraiser, this year dubbed “The Tangled Webs of William,” has been postponed but is expected to take the OTA stage later this year.

Some of OTA’s actors and actresses are going online (facebook.com/olympictheatrearts) to post some home “performances”; visitors are invited to add some of their own monologues while they’re there, OTA representatives said.

For non-Facebookers, OTA has started a “Shakespeare in Solitude” showcase on Vimeo at vimeo.com/showcase/6937372. Or click on the link on OTA’s homepage, olympictheatrearts.org.

“In these strange times, OTA would like to remind everyone that we are still a community,” OTA representatives said in a Thursday press release.

“We are fortunate enough to have some pretty amazing tools to stay in touch, that poor Bill Shakespeare never even dreamed of, so let’s use them. That said, OTA also hopes for a speedy social recovery so that we can get back together again, face to face.”
