An open letter from Pittsboro Youth Theater’s managers


To the Editor:

Gosh, we’re sorry about the COVID pandemic; millions dead, tens of millions hospitalized, hundreds of millions infected and our little community performance arts organization scratching out an existence for years. It is not an exaggeration to say that every person in the world has been affected.

Tammy and I determined early on and have stuck to our two most important objectives:

• cause the least harm possible, and

• continue to “improve Pittsboro’s future by enriching local children’s lives and continue Pittsboro’s rich arts heritage.”

It looks like so far no person has caught or spread COVID in any PYT/CFTA activities, and we’ve been able to keep our doors open, barely at times.

Thank you for doing business with us. We have not and cannot please everyone, but we will continue to take the steps we think are best for us, our organization and our community. We hope that your family and others will recognize our precarious position and support us and our mission as and when they can in the future.

Craig Witter & Tammy Matthews
