SJCT Weekly Update
SJCT Situation Report
- Out of concern for our community and patrons, SJCT will abide by all Public Health recommendations as restrictions are relaxed.
- All performances are cancelled through 2020.
- Offices will be open with limited staffing when the Stay Home order is lifted.
The SJCT Response
During the Stay Home, Stay Safe order, our staff have been working from home, engaged in:
- Cutting thousands of dollars of anticipated expenses.
- Applying for the Payroll Protection Program (we are still waiting to hear if we will be awarded a loan).
- Applying for CARES relief funding through the Washington State Arts Commission.
- Submitting requests that designated grants be converted to general operations, and our funders have responded generously.
- Processing ticket refunds, exchanges, and donations.
- Participating with the San Juan County Emergency Operations Center in public information distribution.
- Seeking new grant opportunities.
- Informing patrons about opportunities for arts engagement like the National Theatre and Metropolitan Opera streaming performances.
Here are some practical ways you can help:
- Please consider a gift, or increasing your gift. There has never been a more vital time to invest in the future of SJCT. Information about donating online or mailing a gift can be found here: www.sjctheatre.org/support
- Become a Member. Membership begins at $25 per family per year, and include great benefits (all of which will begin afresh once performances start again).
- Give your tickets. If you have tickets for an event that has been cancelled, please consider donating the cost of that ticket back to SJCT. If every ticket-buyer did this, we would be another $8,000 toward our goal!
