A Letter from our Executive Director

Though we must close our doors and dim the lights for now, we will always keep one bulb shining on our stage, ready to welcome you all back after this unplanned intermission.”

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the MMAS Board and Staff, I want to keep you updated about MMAS theater operations while we navigate this public health emergency. Because our patrons are our first priority, we are abiding by the order to stay at home and adhere to social distancing. The necessary and responsible action of staying apart means our Academy classes and many events cannot take place as originally scheduled. We are working hard to reschedule as many shows as possible into the next year, and we hope you will join us then! We will continue to keep our website updated on the status of events and classes and hope to be able to share our next season’s offerings as they become available.

Although we know nothing can replace the magic of live performance, we are also working to develop ways to maintain our quality arts experiences together online. Follow us on Facebook, the Academy Facebook, or Instagram for updates.  

Your support is needed now more than ever. While we are grateful that we can look ahead at the developing lineup of exciting shows in the 2020-21 Season, in order to bring those to you we must successfully manage the alarming repercussions of our current reality. We are exhausting every option available to alleviate some of the serious financial losses we are experiencing, and although it pains us to do so, this now includes furloughing our employees. As a nonprofit, we rely on the financial support of our patrons and sponsors. Without the revenue from ticket sales, and classes, we need you now more than ever. If you are able, please consider making a tax deductible donation, which will help ensure we can continue bringing quality theatre programs to Southeastern Massachusetts.

As always, we are inspired by the compassion of our community. We thank you for being such a supportive and appreciative audience! We wish you all the best as we all navigate the continuing changes to our daily lives together.

Be safe and be well,

Ken Butler
Executive Director
