Wagon Wheel Theatre postponing performances scheduled for summer
WARSAW, Ind. – The Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts in Warsaw announced that they will be postponing their summer schedule of performances over COVID-19 concerns.
The decision comes after board members determined that is not yet safe for audiences and performers.
Jay Michaels, Executive Director of the Wagon Wheel, says that despite being hesitant, the postponements are ultimately the right thing to do.
“It made the most sense to do that,” Michaels said, “it certainly was not an easy decision by any stretch of the imagination. We didn’t bow to any pressure or anything like that we just really needed to take a step back and look at things.”
The four performances scheduled for this summer will be postponed until next summer.
Ticket holders at Wagon Wheel will likely be able use those tickets next year. You can also donate your tickets.
The Theatre also says that they do have plans for holding performances in August, including a show that was scheduled to take place this summer.
Michaels said that public safety is his top priority. He believes that small community theaters will recover from the pandemic, but it may take some time.
