NOTICE ABOUT OUR REMAINING PLAY PERFORMANCES FOR SPRING 2020
All Spring 2020 productions of Pippin and Lysistrata are cancelled. The Tempest will have its final performance Wednesday March 11th at 7:30pm.
Our department is dedicated to conserving a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, faculty and community members. It is in that spirit that we have made the tough decision to not proceed with the scheduled theatre programming.
We appreciate your patience as we work with the A.S. Ticket Office to issue refunds for all purchased tickets to the events that have been cancelled. Should you have any questions regarding the status of your refund, please contact the A.S. ticket office at 818-677-2488.
