We received this from Ford’s Theatre regarding today’s performances of “A Christmas Carol“:
Ford’s Theatre has canceled both performances of “A Christmas Carol” for Saturday, December 19, 2009. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change, but we felt it to be in the best interest of our patrons and staff. A decision regarding Sunday’s performances will be announced tomorrow.
Patrons who purchased through our authorized ticket distributor, Ticketmaster, will be contacted early next week concerning their refund. Patrons who purchased directly through Ford’s Theatre will be contacted by Ford’s Theatre; if they have not heard from Ford’s Theatre by Monday morning, they should contact the Ford’s Theatre Box Office at (202) 347-4833. For tickets purchased through any other outlet, patrons should contact that vendor directly.
Ford’s Theatre is a non-profit theatre, and we rely on contributions to help bring quality programming to our stage. We would like to ask that patrons consider donating the value of their tickets back to the Theatre in support of our efforts. Their entire contribution will be tax-deductible.
