Due to this COVID-19 Pandemic and the Stay-At-Home Orders that are in effect for everyone’s safety, the Performances scheduled from April through June of this year, are currently cancelled. It is my hope along with these venues to reschedule these Performances when we have combatted this COVID-19 Pandemic and it is safe for everyone to gather again. Until then, please be safe and vigilant taking all necessary precautions and only leaving your homes when necessary. Staying home can save lives.
