On March 12, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that gatherings of more than 100 people are banned by official order due to concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). As you may know, Stuart’s Opera House will be deeply affected by this ban. As a nonprofit dedicated to bringing and sharing the performing arts with our audiences, we heavily rely on ticket sales to exist.
We have a variety of upcoming shows throughout the spring and summer. Because this order does not specify a clear timeline as to how long events should be canceled, we will cancel events as we near their respective dates. We are hoping that this will allow for our much-anticipated spring event schedule to happen and continue planning accordingly.
For the shows that can be kept under 100 people, we want to assure you that the safety of our audience, artists, and staff is our highest priority. We are taking all CDC recommended steps to minimize risk.
In the event we must postpone or cancel a show, we will honor all tickets for the rescheduled date or offer a full refund to our ticket buyers. If you would like to help us get through this complicated and financially difficult time, we invite you to consider donating the cost of your canceled ticket to Stuart’s Opera House.
We cannot thank you enough for supporting Stuart’s Opera House and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate this complicated situation. We trust that things will get better.
