2020 SUMMER UPDATE

    Dear HMT Friends and Families,

    We hope this email finds your families safe and healthy!

    After much consideration, and in the interest of keeping our campers, staff, and community safe, sadly, we have decided to cancel all summer camps for 2020. We held out hope as long as possible, but we now have to acknowledge that this is the reality of our summer ahead. We are heartbroken not to get the chance to sing and dance with your children and share our passion and excitement for musical theatre. It truly is the highlight of our year!

    The impact of our lost HMT summer camps is profound. These cancellations affect all of our campers, our musicians, costume and set designers, and our talented staff who bring our shows to life every summer.

    **Being a small theatre business, we have been hit hard by the shutdowns of COVID 19. Please consider allowing us to hold your camper’s spot for next summer! HMT summer camp is our families sole source of income.

    **Unlike many other Bay Area summer camps, we are offering refunds to all parents that choose that option. We are sensitive to the hardships that this pandemic has brought to so many families.

    1. I would like to use my 2020 camp payment as a PRE-PAYMENT for 2021 camp. (This option will ensure first choice for camp sessions AND avoid the annual increased fees.)

    FROM SARAH HOPE:

    When I moved back from New York City to create HMT 20 years ago, it was my goal to bring “Broadway to the Bay Area.” I was determined to combine my love for musical theatre with a high caliber dramatic training program for children. I wanted to create memorable experiences that my students could be proud of while growing as performers and people.

    I am devastated that we can’t offer our HMT theatre platform this summer. I know students really need this outlet more than ever. The consistency of coming back to the same program year after year is so important. A strong theatre technique is built overtime. I always said, “There is NO way I am ever missing a summer!” (Even when I had new born babies – breastfeeding, diapers and all….everyone came…..it is a family business!)

    So, I can’t imagine a summer without HMT campers singing and dancing to their hearts’ delight….working toward a shared goal of putting on an amazing show in just 2 weeks. I love to celebrate the hard work, commitment and transformation of our young actors every show day! Their sparkle shines bright!

    Thank you for supporting your children’s HMT theatre arts education! It is an honor and privilege to teach your children every summer. We look forward to many more wonderful summers ahead!

    THE SHOW MUST GO ON…..just a year later!!

    The famous saying “THE SHOW MUST GO ON!” has served theatre companies well for centuries. But now, in this unprecedented time, these great words go far beyond the confines of our stages. Our new version is: WE MUST GO ON….and the SHOW will have to WAIT!” We are all working together to keep everyone safe.

    For all of us at Hope Musical Theatre, it means that whatever the odds, however many obstacles we must surpass, we will carry on together, pull each other up, and put on the best show that we can……just a year later than expected! It will be worth the wait! :)

    And remember….

    Until we meet again, please continue to keep music alive in your home and have a dance party in your living room every once in a while!
