Press Release from American Players Theatre:
SPRING GREEN, WIS: American Players Theatre (APT) will offer complimentary tickets to Madison Repertory Theatre subscribers, following the announcement that Madison Rep has dissolved, leaving subscribers holding tickets to two productions that will not occur.
APT’s Producing Artistic Director David Frank said: "APT was deeply saddened by the loss of the Madison Rep and we are glad to do what we can to help soften the blow a little. We hope, also, that this small contributed service to area theatergoers will help communicate that professional theater in the community is still extremely robust and healthy."
APT will mail a letter to Madison Rep subscribers in the next two weeks.
It will include instructions on how to redeem Madison Rep tickets for tickets to select performances of all eight 2009 APT productions, including shows in the new indoor Touchstone Theatre that opens in July.
