We hope you are well and staying safe and healthy during this difficult time! In light of recent events around the COVID-19 pandemic, Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus is cancelling the upcoming dates for our spring show ROYALS: Kings, Queen & Prince, scheduled for May 15-17, 2020 and postponing the show to later in the year. With the shelter-in-place order extended to the end of April, we are unable to rehearse together as a chorus, and we want to ensure the health and safety of our members, audience, and supporters.
We are working to reschedule the May 2020 performances. Our plan is to do three performances of ROYALS in the late summer at Lake View Presbyterian Church, 716 W Addison St, Chicago, IL 60613, over one weekend (Friday/Saturday/Sunday). The version that will be performed will not be a full scale production, but a pared down version. The dates are not clear right now because we are still navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and cannot announce specific dates at this time. We will let you know as soon as we are able.
If you already purchased tickets: We realize that there will be questions regarding tickets already purchased. Please wait for communication from either the Athenaeum Theatre or North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie Box Offices regarding your ticket order. CGMC handles ticketing for the Beverly Arts Center performance, and we will reach out to you separately. Cancelling the show is a big financial hit to our organization, so we encourage our patrons to do one of the following:
Convert the ticket cost into a donation to Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus – a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization
Wait until we reschedule the smaller, late summer performances and transfer the ticket(s) to the new date(s)
Apply the ticket cost to a future performance in the 20-21 season
As a very last option, request a refund of your tickets
Subscription tickets can be used for the rescheduled performance(s) or added to 20-21 season subscriptions as additional tickets. Wewill be reaching out to ticket buyers soon, so please remain patient until you hear directly from CGMC or from one of the venue box offices.
Have a wonderful day and please stay safe, practice social distancing, and thank you for all of your support!
