Statement regarding Mr. Burns:
Even if we return to campus in early April, it is impossible for our artists to feasibly mount a fully produced show. We have therefore canceled the scheduled main stage public run of “Mr. Burns” for this April. We will relaunch the same production in the fall, with the same artistic team and same company to the extent possible. A fully produced “Mr Burns” will be the opening show of our 2020-21 season. We will contact ticketholders about ticket refund and transfer options at a future date.
