On Monday, May 27, devastation struck many of our surrounding communities. Displacing families, friends, and whole towns. The damage left by the path of the Dayton tornadoes is evident in the news outlets, social media, and while driving through our neighboring towns.
We open our hearts and push through in these following days with hope and faith, by help of our neighbors. It is through the strong ties of our small communities we are able to function after such heartache.
It's not often our small towns feel this pain or witness firsthand the damage of mother nature, but this week, we grow a little more understanding and heartache for all those who've been previously affected by storms, natural disasters, and tragedy.
As I sit writing this, I have yet to make contact with 90% of our Dynamite community and I hope this message finds you well and pushing on in any unfortune you and your family have faced.
In moments like these, it's import to keep a schedule of normalcy for our future generations and offer a place of hope and positivity. Though difficult, we will soldier on. But, our normalcy is not left untouched by the damage done.
It is with a heavy heart, and a hope for pure understanding from our families, we must reschedule our upcoming performance, SHOWTIME 2019 - "A Dynamite Rydell".
It is with great sadness we look over the photos of the Brookville community and the loss they have suffered. The school is pushing forth to rebuilding, only days after the storms, but the building will not be available and usable for any events - including our show within the coming weeks.
With this announcement comes many details left to be determined and I will do my best to answer questions as concretely as possible, but please know the show date will stay pending until an accurate completion date can be determined.
My heart aches for those displaced and who have lost everything. It is my hope, our families, our Dynamite community, can be open to the need for delay and understand the situation.
In the coming days, I will be releasing detailed information on what to expect in regard to classes, rehearsals, the performance, ticketing, and the new schedule.
I ask for your patience in this matter, as our show is a mere speck in the big picture of what our neighbors are experiencing.
If you have questions, please reach out via Facebook, email, and I have reopened the Remind app for this unfortunate turn of events.
