It’s with heavy heart but with great love for each and every student that we are sending this letter to you. The Starlight Family is challenged by the same things that confront all of your families at the moment, given the State of Emergency in Massachusetts and the real concerns for safety with the impending dangers of COVID-19. To date UMass, Westfield State, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst and Smith College have all canceled classes. Amherst Public School has also canceled all large gatherings and use of their auditorium so unfortunately that means we have lost our show date for Beauty.
Because of these reports along with statements from the public health and state government Starlight will be postponing all classes and shows effective immediately. We are hoping to just move the shows out to possible June when this crisis has passed and we can laugh, cheer and give standing ovations to these amazing kids once again.
We will update you weekly on any decisions that are being made. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us. This is not a cancellation just a brief intermission.
With great love
Cyn and your Starlight Team.
