At the Wilma we like to take big artistic risks. But we never take risks with people’s health and safety. For that reason, we have made some important decisions to protect the health and safety of our artists, staff, audiences, and students during this global pandemic:
The Wilma, like our fellow arts organizations, relies heavily on donations to keep our theater in operation. Your support will be more important than ever as we navigate uncertainties about upcoming events and gatherings. Please consider making a donation to the Wilma to sustain our operations during this difficult time. To make a donation, click here or call (267) 433-8137.
We also ask you to reach out to your local, state, and federal representatives to request that arts are included in any relief efforts. You can do that quickly and easily by clicking here.
Finally, if you have tickets to any other cultural events that have been cancelled, consider donating the cost of that ticket back to that organization. They, too, will be feeling the effects of cancellations artistically and financially.
Our thoughts are with the many people affected around the globe. The power of theater is to bring us in the same place and face our challenges together. I hope we will be able to do it again soon.
Thank you for your support during this challenging time. We wish you and your loved ones well during this difficult period.
Blanka Zizka, Yury Urnov, James Ijames, and Morgan Green
