Dear Transcendence Family,
I’m Amy Miller, the Artistic Director of the Transcendence Theatre Company. I wanted to let you know that all of us at Transcendence are sending each and every one of you so very much love, positive healthy vibes, hope, and strength during these uncertain, isolating, and anxiety-filled days.
In 2017, Transcendence’s Season Theme was “Rise Up: We Are All In This Together.” And undoubtedly we were all in this together when the fires raged through Wine Country. Amidst great challenge, we stayed #SonomaStrong and all of us experienced a powerful example of the strength, generosity, and love of an incredible community.
In response to the fires of 2017, our Transcendence artists in New York produced a Sonoma Strong benefit to show their immense love for this community. We invite you to watch this performance and we hope it uplifts your spirits.
At the Sonoma County Day of Remembrance, I spoke these words:
“There is no force that could ever stop the love of this community. In this moment we make a commitment to transcend this obstacle. We are rising beyond limits. We are unifying to recover and rebuild. And we are moving forward with the extraordinary love that lies in all of our hearts.”
These are scary times. There is no denying it. But know that we are all surrounded by so much love. Take a deep breath. Remember the energy of our field of dreams… friends and family having the best night ever, the gorgeous view of the vineyards at Jack London State Historic Park, the breathtaking performances, the stars, the moon, and the magic.
As you know, many theatres are canceling shows over the next month per the mandate by the California Department of Health to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We are still planning on an amazing 2020 summer season of Transcendence’s Broadway Under the Stars. However, we know this is an unprecedented, fast-developing situation, and we continue to follow the guidance of public health authorities.
One thing that Transcendence can provide right now is inspiration and connection. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram. We hope we can share some joy over the coming days with the Transcendence family we love so much.
Our 2020 Season theme is “We are Family”. Through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, we will be there for one another. That is our promise to you.
All the love from the bottom our hearts,
Amy Miller and the Transcendence Team
