  1. They cancelled this 2 days before opening night.
    I find it hard to believe that the Marco Players Theater is either so mismanaged or stupid that they weren’t aware of what was being produced in their venue. These young actors (and their families) were making many sacrifices to devote the many hours necessary over the past couple months. Then they wait until right before opening night to come up with this lame excuse to show the kids the door. If this was a valid excuse, they would have had to cancel most of their productions.
    I wonder if any of the Board members have the capability of remembering their youth when they fell in love with acting. Imagine how YOU would feel if the theater group you were growing up with blindsided you. Apparently, none of them can or won’t. This is something these young actors will never forget. And I hope this community won’t either.
    Your condescending “We apologize that this decision was announced with such short notice; we know that the children worked so hard” is not accepted and you have no idea how hard these young actors worked and you owe them better than this.
