THE GREAT SOUTHWEST SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL 2020 TO BE POSTPONED UNTIL JULY 2021
THE LYRIC THEATRE WISHES TO ANNOUNCE, WITH REGRET, THE
POSTPONEMENT OF THE GREAT SOUTHWEST SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL UNTIL JULY 2021. DUE TO THE POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF THE CORONAVIRUS ON OUR AUDIENCES, ARTISTS, BOARD, STAFF, AND VOLUNTEERS.
As of March 26th, Lyric Theatre Artistic and Executive Director, Gordon McCall, wishes to announce that The Lyric Theatre’s GREAT SOUTHWEST SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL is suspending production operations until the summer of 2021, when it is hoped that the Coronavirus threat will have subsided enough for our community to gather in communal celebration of uplifting events, such as the shared experience of the plays of William Shakespeare.
The safety and well-being of our community is our top priority, as we all experience concerns about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). While we are hopeful that the overall health situation will improve sooner than later, until it does we will not put our patrons or personnel at risk.
Please check our website and Facebook pages for ongoing updates. www.lyrictheatre.ca 306-773-6292
On behalf of the Lyric Board of Directors and Administration, thank you for your understanding and support.
