FIRST THREE PRODUCTIONS POSTPONED

To our loyal friends and patrons,

In the interest of protecting our artists, administrative staff, patrons and community members, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the first three productions of our season (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Singin’ in the Rain, and Sister Act).

This means the 2020 season is now slated to begin in early August with our production of Murder on the Orient Express.

This is not the way we expected to begin our 60th anniversary season, but the good news is that we were able to secure the rights to produce these musicals in our 2021 season instead. If you have tickets for any or all of these shows, you have options, some of which are mentioned below.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we rely on the generous support of businesses and individuals to meet our funding needs even during a normal season. The loss of three shows this season puts us in a challenging situation, as you might imagine. If you are able, please consider converting any tickets you may have purchased to the above shows into a tax-deductible donation, or making an additional donation to the theatre. This will help ensure we can keep our doors open and our beloved theatre staffed through this difficult season.

We are thrilled to be able to tell you that if you convert your ticket to a donation, your gift will double in value for us, thanks to a special challenge grant of $100,000. This has been made possible by: Stan & Kay Kuecker with a lead gift, Hank Waters & Vicki Russell, Orscheln Farm & Home, John Landrum, Rita Burnstad, Dave & Nancy Griggs, and Rich & Debbie Lawson.

Converting your purchase to a donation, if you are able, is truly the best way to help The Lyceum survive this crisis.

If you have seats reserved for one or all of the above musicals, whether through a subscription package or a single ticket purchase, your reservations can automatically transfer to the 2021 season (see below for a chart with corresponding dates). If you would like to keep your ticket but think you may want to switch to another show time, we will make an exchange period available early in January 2021, before tickets go on sale to the general public again (a benefit normally reserved exclusively for our season subscribers).

Please do not try to contact our box office at this time, as our staff members are all working remotely. You can help us most by filling out our ticketing form (click link below) so you can tell us how you’d like for us to handle your purchase. Please respond, if you can, no later than June 3.

For more complicated questions, we will contact you directly to make sure we take care of you on an individual basis.

We appreciate your patience during this time as we are operating with a skeleton crew and have a lot of loyal patrons to contact! You can best help us by completing the form below, if you have reservations to one or more of these shows. We appreciate your patience as we work hard to reach out to individuals, as needed, during the coming weeks.

Sincerely,

Quin Gresham, Producing Artistic Director
Steve Bertani, Managing Director

Box Office to Close Until April 24

In light of the Governor’s stay-at-home order, the Lyceum Theatre and its box office will be closed through May 3.

We will be checking messages remotely, and will return calls and emails as soon as possible.

Understanding that this is an ever-changing situation, we anticipate that adjustments to our season are likely. When and if the time comes for us to postpone performances based on the recommendation from local, state or national agencies, we will immediately notify Lyceum patrons by phone and/or email. You can also find up-to-date news here on our website, and on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
.
Should there be any postponement, we will take care of our audience–we are all in this together!
.
Purchasing a ticket to The Lyceum is still a good idea, and in fact the best way to ensure that The Lyceum remains strong during this unusual time. If it becomes necessary to alter our plans, your ticket will still be honored when the production is rescheduled. Tickets continue to be available here on our website.
.
Furthermore, if you are able, donations to The Lyceum remain the lifeblood of our organization and are more important now than ever before. We have a wonderful team at the Lyceum, and it is our hope to retain them through this difficult time so that, when we are able, we can quickly jump back into the exciting work of creating professional theatre in the heart of Missouri. Your support will make that possible.
.
We sincerely hope that you, our Lyceum family, remain healthy and sane during this trying time. When the time comes, we will be eager to welcome you back to YOUR theatre!

An Important Announcement About our Upcoming Events

It is with much regret that we are canceling our 60th Anniversary Party on Saturday, May 16. We have no plans to reschedule the event at this time.

To our loyal friends and patrons,

We’ve been working hard at The Lyceum to ensure the health and safety of our audience and staff members while simultaneously evaluating a few adjustments to our schedule. We’ve postponed all of our April programming/special events, including our Theatre for Young Audiences presentation. As sad as we are to make the decision, it is necessary to abandon plans for our 60th Anniversary Celebration, originally scheduled for May 16.

We are optimistic about the future and we still plan to open our 60th Anniversary Season on June 3. If necessary, we will continue to make changes to our schedule in order to keep you and staff healthy and safe.

We will keep you apprised of any changes as they occur, via email, our website and our social media accounts. We send our love and support to all of you. Stay safe, Lyceum family!

The Lyceum is closed to public visitors for the time being and our administrative staff are working remotely. Our box office remains open for calls only at 660-837-3311 x1 – please do not try to visit us in person.

Continue to check our website, social media accounts and email updates (you can sign up for these at the bottom of this page if you don’t already receive our emails) for announcements.
