Cancellations and Postponements at CTC
March 12 – March 27
Commonwealth Theatre Center cares deeply about the safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and the general public. Our top priority, at this time, is to adhere to governmental and local guidelines put in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
We are working in tandem with state & local government officials, JCPS, and other local cultural institutions — as well as following recommendations of the CDC regarding best practices for convening our various stakeholders. As such, the following decisions have been made that affect scheduled programming:
- Conservatory programs March 12 – March 27 are suspended. This suspension includes all levels of CTC’s Conservatory classes (youth and adults) as well as rehearsals. We hope to resume classes the week of April 6, and will relay all further information to students. (Some rehearsals may take place after March 27, and directors will be in touch with casts with details as they’re available.)
- A Streetcar Named Desire performances scheduled for March 12 – March 29 are postponed. CTC is looking into possibly adding performances between April 2-11. Many factors will enter into that decision, especially the status of COVID-19 in our community and the recommendations of state & local officials, the CDC, and other key decision-makers.
- Ticketing for the public performance of Legends: On the Trail of Daniel Boone on March 28 has been suspended. CTC will update the status of this performance in the coming weeks.
CTC’s ticketing system has been temporarily closed. Lost revenue associated with canceled shows – especially for smaller organizations – is a very serious matter, as correlating expenses have already been paid out. Our plan is to process any currently pre-sold tickets to canceled Streetcar performances as donations, but we want to be sensitive to undue burden on our audiences and supporters. Please contact us about the possibility of ticket transfers if and when performances are confirmed and tickets are again made available.
Please know that even while programs are suspended our enhanced cleaning protocols continue, and staff members are encouraged to stay home if they are not feeling well or are in close contact with others who are unwell. Hand sanitizers are available in high-traffic areas and signage is posted to promote hygiene best practices.
Further news and decisions about future performances will be released as the situation progresses, based on the best information and recommendations available from authorities.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and cooperation during the coming days and weeks. Please visit the CTC website or follow the Facebook page for the most up-to-date information, and as always, feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns.
