It deeply saddens us to inform you that all New York, and Bermuda performances for HPT 172: Mean Ghouls have been cancelled. This difficult decision comes after recent developments in the COVID-19 public health crisis, most importantly Harvard University's mandate that all large campus events be cancelled.
I hope that you understand that these unfortunate developments are out of our hands, and that in order to place the health and security of our patrons and community above all else, it is not possible for us to continue the shows this weekend.
To current patrons, we will reach out within the next few days to present your options in terms of refunding or rolling over your tickets to a future show. We appreciate your patience on this issue and will be in touch promptly.
We do not take this situation lightly and understand the inconvenience that this may cause many of you. Speaking personally, HPT 172 has been the core of our college experience this year, and it pains us to know that not all of our patrons will get to experience our wonderful show.
Thank you for for your loyalty and understanding. We hope to have you back in Cambridge, Bermuda, or New York with us next year, for HPT 173.
Natalie Needle and Samantha Meade
