Patrons, families, students and staff,
In light of the swiftness with which the coronavirus pandemic has swept our nation, and inconsideration of the CDC guidelines of avoiding social gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all performances and events in the Booker Visual & Performing Arts Center as well as all Booker VPA sponsored events on and off campus, effective immediately.
All ticketholders will be eligible to receive vouchers for future Booker VPA productions. Alternatively, patrons may turn their ticket purchases into a tax-deductible donation to the program. We are deeply grateful for your consideration of this matter. These cancellations will have a profound financial impact on our programs. Our projected losses are close to $30,000 among all departments, a staggering blow for an arts education program. If you’re able, turning your ticket purchase into a donation can help mitigate these tremendous losses.
You have the ability to submit your preference here. Our team will follow up individually with requests soon. Due to our physical offices being closed, we can only receive calls at our toll free number, 833-6VPATIX (833-687-2849).
Thank you for your understanding and your support. This change will be a difficult one for us, but we move in solidarity with the rest of our community and country to combat the spread of this virus. We look forward to being able to present our works in the near future.
