Local theaters suspend productions

Reno Little Theater, Brüka and Good Luck Macbeth announced they are suspending their productions as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

“We’re sad to announce the postponement of our production of ‘The Imaginary Invalid,’ but we’re serious about keeping our community safe,” said RLT’s Melissa Taylor. “We are working hard to reschedule this production and all tickets to this run will be transferred to future performance dates.

“In the event that you are unable to attend a rescheduled date, your tickets will be valid for a performance of our upcoming productions of ‘The Quality of Life’ or ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.'”

The three theaters released the following statement online:

As community theaters, we believe that the “community” comes first.  And so, the teams at Brüka, Good Luck Macbeth, and Reno Little Theater have made the difficult decision to join together in collectively suspending all performances through March 31st. This decision was not made lightly, or from any sense of panic, but out of our deep care for the well-being of our artists, audience members, and the wider community.

More information is forthcoming from the individual organizations regarding what comes next for their productions & what you should do if you have tickets to one of those shows. If you are able, please consider donating your refund to the venue to help during this difficult time as ticket sales are the main source of income for non-profit community organizations like ours. Thank you!   

Most large events are being canceled amid attempts by health authorities to reduce the spread of COVID-19. People are urged to contact venues and event organizers to see if area events are still being held.
