COVID-19 Update from Positivity Director Julie Stryker
Hello Dear Parents and Crew,
It is with deep regret, due to the Covid-19, I have decided to cancel this years Positivity program. It was a tough decision, but I wanted to let you know before you made any summer plans surrounding PCT. This is also based on the decision by the LaPointe Center to postpone the Wine Tasting to a date still to be determined and the Summer Concert series is also cancelled.
So far, the island businesses have been diligent in their efforts to keep the islanders safe. The fact is, we are an isolated community that surges in population in the summer. I don’t want to put anyone, kids, parents, crew or islanders in any sort of compromised health situation, should the virus start to surge again.
This will be a difficult summer for many artists and arts organizations on the island (and everywhere). Please consider donating to the LaPointe Center for the Arts in order to keep our programs going in the future.
I love you all and I am forever grateful for your continued support over the years. We are 25 years strong. Your children are the heart and soul of Positivity. We will return in the summer of 2021 with renewed strength, energy and creativity.
Please stay safe and healthy. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Since 1994, Julie Stryker North has steered Positivity Children’s Theatre in its goal to support the creative energy of children in a fun, innovative atmosphere of theater production. The program incorporates drama, music, and movement into its annual summer program. Local playwrights, actors, set technicians and musicians assist the children in the process of creating an original presentation that often contains history and stories from Madeline Island and the region.
Past shows have also included important social justice themes, such as “The Three Wolves,” about endangered species, “Alice in Blunderland” which educated about factory farms, and “Mine, Mine, Mine” a presentation about an iron ore mine that was being proposed for the region.
The 2020 program has been cancelled. For more information, contact Julie at 715.209.0417.
