Far-off Cancellations: Young Auditorium’s “An American in Paris” and UW-W Theatre/Dance Dept. “Summeround” Performances

From the Young Auditorium: “As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, Young Auditorium is working with promoters, artists, and artist management to help limit the spread the coronavirus while keeping employees, patrons, and performers safe. With these considerations in mind, the performance of An American In Paris originally scheduled for May 3rd has been cancelled. Patrons who have purchased tickets for the cancelled performance will be personally contacted by a Young Auditorium staff member to discuss options. Given our limited resources during these unprecedented times, we expected to reach all ticketed patrons by Tuesday, April 7th .

Young Auditorium will provide updated information as the need arises, and will adapt our plans as directed by university administration. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we navigate this situation. Please visit www.youngauditorium.com for complete details on event cancellations.

From UW-W College of Arts and Communication: Friends of UW-Whitewater’s Summerround will not be surprised to learn that the 2020 season has been canceled out of an abundance of caution for our patrons, students, faculty, and staff during this period of disruption due to COVID-19.  “Over the years, many have derived great pleasure from attending UW-Whitewater student productions and we are looking forward to your joining us for the 2021 season when a greater sense of normalcy returns,” shared Dean Eileen M. Hayes.

The faculty and staff of the Department of Theatre/Dance are working on creative ways of teaching their coursework and working from home. Creativity is in large supply in the College of Arts and Communication, which will serve us well as we navigate staying safe at home.

 “Our Warhawk family is strong, caring and resilient. I appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we navigate this situation. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 worldwide outbreak, and we will act and adapt our plans as appropriate.” – Chancellor Dr. Dwight C. Watson
