How can you help?
We are in the midst of challenging times during the global outbreak of COVID-19, and we at SLT are doing all we can to make the health and safety of our volunteers, patrons, performers, and technical staff our top priority. It is with a heavy heart that we suspend programming indefinitely.
In the Heights, scheduled to take place June 5-14, has been postponed. When a new date is selected, you will be among the first to know. All individuals who have tickets for In the Heights will be notified of the new dates and be given priority seating. If for some reason you cannot use your ticket to this production, we will graciously apply your ticket to a future show or you can donate your ticket back to SLT and it will be donated to a low-income student.
At this time, the financial hardship that SLT is facing is substantial. Due to recent cancellations of several fundraisers, we are not able to pay our outstanding debt of $3300. In addition, we have monthly insurance and warehouse storage costs that equal almost $1000.00 per month. Ticket sales are non existent, which usually cover the costs of our operating expenses. Grant monies are currently only available to us WHEN WE DO A PERFORMANCE and therefore in limbo. We humbly ask for your support today. To make a contribution of any amount, visit https://www.spanishlyrictheatre.com/support-us, or call our box office at 813-603-6221.
Thank you for your patience and kindness. In the days and weeks ahead, we invite you to keep up with us on Facebook (Spanish Lyric Theatre/S.L.T. Productions) and Instagram (theatrespanishlyric) where we will be announcing new Virtual Programming.
In closing, let us try, if we can, to make the best use of this time. Let us be generous. Let us help those in need in our neighborhood. Let us THANK the healthcare worker, law enforcement, delivery person and store clerk. And let us take comfort in knowing that better days will return. We will be with our families and friends again. And while the world battles COVID 19, remember to celebrate the good, the fun and the positive. See you soon!
