Merely Players values the health and safety of our artists, their families, and our audiences. Our whole art form is about creating and sharing good theatre for large groups. Now is not the time for those gatherings.

You helped us mightily and trusted us with your advance purchase of tickets. Many of you have tickets left on your full season tickets, flex pass, or individual tickets. We present you with the following options:

1. If you are able to convert your purchase into a tax-deductible donation to Merely Players, please know that this would be greatly appreciated, as it will help us to weather this financial calamity and enable us to move forward next season. If you would like a receipt for this donation, please email Greta at and we will get one to you. Otherwise, you don't need to do anything. We will accept your gift as an honor. Thank you for considering this option!

2. If you would prefer to convert your purchase into credit for ticket purchases next season, please send an email with your request to Greta at We will roll over any tickets left this year for you to use for any show next season. We are designing an exciting season right now and are still planning to bring Matilda back when it is safe to do so.

3. If you would like a refund, please send an email with your request to We will send you a pro-rated refund, based upon your season ticket package price.

We do ask for your patience as our staff processes all of your requests. We will absolutely respond, but it may take our staff a while to get to you. We appreciate your patience and support.

One way that you can help us is to subscribe next year. When we open our 2020-21 season, we want to do it with the biggest number of subscribers ever, helping us jump out of this moment and reignite our local theatre scene. We know it's scary to think about being around people again, but it's also exciting to think about being around people again! Please watch for our season announcement later this summer.

Finally, like everyone else, we're in need of donations now. Because of the health crisis, we were unable to go forth with our mid-year fundraiser, and this impacted our organization significantly. It's honestly hard to ask right now when there are so many needs worldwide, but since we know that you value good theatre, we want to remind you of this possibility. If you are in the fortunate position of having a little extra to donate, we would be thrilled. You can make a gift here:


“All the world’s a stage

And all the men and women

Merely Players.”
