Season and Cancellation Update

We hope this notice finds you all safe and healthy. We miss seeing your children’s smiling faces.  “Normally” this time of year our Board members and lead parents would be joyfully undertaking all of our pre-show preparations.  Unfortunately, this year is different.

Due to the recommendation of health officials and Sacramento City Unified School District’s decision to not open the theatre at Hiram Johnson through the fall semester, we had to make the difficult decision we were hoping to avoid. We will have to cancel our production of Matilda. We are saddened and disappointed to have witnessed your children’s hard work on this show, and to have worked alongside you constructing the shows sets, costumes, props, lights, sound, backstage/rehearsals, and more.  We were so close to show time prior to the shelter in place; the sets were constructed, costumes purchased, lines memorized, songs harmonized, dances choreographed, and blocking and staging completed. It is our hope that we will start up again in Spring 2021.

Registration Fees will be rolled over to the next production. If your child/children had paid registration fees for Matilda, then they will be invited to attend our next production without additional registration fees.

Costume Fees and Show Program Ad payments will also be refunded if your checks or cash were already cashed/deposited by RCTC. Any checks that were not cashed/deposited by RCTC will be destroyed.

We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as possible and please stay safe and healthy.
