FMT ANNOUNCES CANCELLATION OF BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
It is with considerable sadness and a heavy heart, that Family Musical Theater must announce the cancellation of its summer production of Beauty and the Beast. There have been multiple circumstances and roadblocks placed in our way that currently make the feasibility of producing a show - of the professional caliber we desire - impossible.
As you are probably aware, the St Louis Theater Community has lost a premiere performing venue, as the Ivory Theater was donated to the school next door to be used as a school auditorium, which is funded by State Grants. While this may be a great addition for the school, the increased costs and restrictions that will be in place under the new management does not make it a conducive or a viable, affordable option for a volunteer theater organization to continue doing shows.
Many have asked what this means for the future of Family Musical Theater. Honestly, we do not know at this point in time. We are going to take the remainder of 2017 to look at other options and regroup. We do hope to continue offering the fun and professional productions for which Family Musical Theater has become known for providing. But, only time will tell, and it will depend greatly upon the availability of an alternate, suitable and affordable new home in which to produce and perform the good, quality shows you have come to enjoy.
In the meantime, we wish to thank everyone for their support over the past 28 years, and we hope to see you all on stage or in the audience again soon! We will update you on any new developments…
