Dear Valued Audience Members,
As of Friday, March 9, 2018, North Pointe Ballet has changed theater venues for our production of Peter Pan. We are excited to announce that the performances May 4-6 will now be held at the beautiful, recently-renovated historic Lorain Palace Theater in Lorain, Ohio. The theater is well-equipped with latest technology in lighting and sound and the auditorium capacity exceeds our previous theater. We look forward to working with the professional staff at the Lorain Palace and are thrilled to be expanding our reach in Lorain County as we continue to fulfill our mission to make classical ballet accessible to everyone in our community.
With that being said, it is not without some regret that we are unable to follow through with our original plans to present at Hope Community Church Auditorium. The staff at Hope Community Church were informed last month that due to limitations that were completely out of their control, the events being presented by outside renters, including but not limited to NPB, were cancelled. Pastor Joel and the staff have stood by North Pointe Ballet and together we exhausted all options to be able to be exempt from the issues at hand and continue to present “Peter Pan” as scheduled. Unfortunately, with the current exemption filing for the building, the church is not legally permitted to rent the facility for matters that are not directly-related to church functions. We wish Hope Church the best as they continue with proceedings to allow other organizations to be able to use the beautiful facility that we have called home for the past two years.
The staff and cast have been having a BLAST working on this fun, new production. We hope you will join us at the Lorain Palace Theater in May!
Artistic Director, North Pointe Ballet
