The recent surprise closing of the Akron based Carousel Dinner Theatre has left many in our area and around Northeast Ohio wondering why and how do I get my money back from my 2009 subscription?

The CEO of the Theatre released a statement today in an effort to answer those questions.

The Carousel Dinner Theatre, LLC has cancelled its 2009 season and closed its doors effective January 4, 2009.For the past year, the economy has materially affected the theatre’s attendance and its ability to make cost adjustments to keep pace with the decrease in attendance.

The final tipping point became the reversal of certain stakeholders’ written or verbal promises that would have had a major impact on the theatre’s continuance for the 2009 season and beyond.

Mr. Joseph E. Palmer accepts full responsibility for this action and regrets the impact on one hundred fifty employees and their families and all others affected by this closure.

Ticket holders who have purchased advanced tickets and gift certificates on their credit cards should immediately contact their credit card company to process a full refund.
