Due to the risks associated with the Covid 19 Pandemic –

  1. COMMUNITY THEATRE CLUB –  Our Fall session is cancelled.  
  2. COMMUNITY CHILDREN’S CHOIR – Our Fall Session is cancelled.
  3. COMMUNITY THEATRE CAMP – Was cancelled in July

All of this makes me really sad.   Covid 19 is something we have never experienced before.  Obviously, it is affecting all of us, and it is hard for everyone to adjust.  However, we must.   We are all in this situation together, and, the most important thing for our families is to stay safe and healthy

Our Provincial Premier just announced this past week our schools will be opening in September.  That is such good news for children and parents!  A successful fall semester at school will certainly affect the re-opening of GUELPH UNITED PERFORMERS.  At the present time, the following is our plan…

COMMUNITY THEATRE CLUB, will start Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at 7:15 to 8:45 p.m., with the plan to extend our program to May 2021.

COMMUNITY CHILDREN’S CHOIR, Spring Session is booked to begin Sunday, April 11, 2021, at 11:30 a.m.

COMMUNITY THEATRE CAMPS are booked for two weeks in July 2021.  Morning Camp for 6 to 10-year-olds, 9:00 to noon.  Afternoon Camp for 11 to 16-year-olds, 1:00 to 4:00.  Dates: July 5 to 9 and July 19 to 23, 2021.

 We all realize this is a wait-and-see situation.

 We are confident GUELPH UNITED PERFORMERS will be back on stage in 2021.  For sure, this pandemic has been a challenge for us.  The Arts Community as a whole has suffered hugely from this virus.  We know theatre, music, laughter and fun are all essential parts of a healthy life.   Currently there are a lot of unknowns.  However, Andrea and I are looking forward to offering our programs to all boys and girls in our community again in 2021.  Please contact me anytime.
