Summerset 2020 Meredith Wilson’s Music Man canceled

Dear Friends of Summerset,

Summerset is a Highland Community College tradition dating back 47 years. As stewards of Summerset, we understand the importance of this annual production in our community. However, our number one concern is always the health and safety of our actors, musicians, crew, support staff, and our audience. In response to COVID-19, we are sad to announce that this year’s Summerset Production of Meredith Wilson’s Music Man will be canceled.

We know there was a lot of excitement about this year’s production, and we are aware there were a lot of people looking forward to participating and watching the production. It is our promise that Summerset will return. It means as much to all of us as it does to all of you. In the meantime, we will explore a potential summer virtual opportunity to replace this year’s Summerset production.

Especially during times like this, we are keenly aware of the important role the arts play in our community. This is why we look forward to welcoming you back to the Ferguson Fine Arts Building in the Fall for our theatre productions, art gallery openings, and vocal and instrumental concerts.

Thank you for your continued support of Summerset and the Fine Arts at Highland Community College. The show must go on!

With Much Appreciation,

Laura Early
Theatre Arts Instructor
