Dear MUSIC THEATRE PHILLY Family & Friends,
We hope this note finds you in a safe and healthy place, both physically and mentally. It has been a whirlwind of a week and the MTP team has been hard at work charting these uncharted waters amidst the ever-changing news regarding COVID-19, and how we are best urged to respond, as a society.
As you may already be aware, it is with an incredibly heavy heart and much deliberation, that MUSIC THEATRE PHILLY has decided to keep our doors closed in our physical space through the rest of the Spring semester. There are many different factors we considered when making this decision, but ultimately, it is of paramount importance to us that you and your child are able to learn in a healthy and safe space through the undetermined future.
During this two-week closure, MUSIC THEATRE PHILLY has made it a point to continue paying our staff in an effort to supplement their income when so many local artist’s jobs are being terminated due to cancelled classes and productions. As part of our mission at MTP, we work to progress the development of local artists in our community. If you are looking for private, online instruction with any of your favorite MTP Staff during your time at home, please feel free to reach out to them individually.
Please note that these sessions are not part of the MTP curriculum. MTP is thrilled to endorse these artists, but do not create the content of the private instruction. Additionally, MTP will take no cut in their financial compensation, in an effort to support these incredible Teaching Artists!
We are so grateful for your support in MUSIC THEATRE PHILLY and our desire to bring quality Arts Education to our community. If you are currently enrolled in our Spring Semester, you will be receiving word about our continued at-home classes and the MTP Virtual Studio. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Please contact Julianna@MusicTheatrePhilly.com for more information regarding administrative matters.
Artistic Director, MUSIC THEATRE PHILLY
