DPAC cancels programming for fall semester
Observer Staff Report | Wednesday, July 1, 2020
The DeBartolo Performing Arts Center has cancelled all public events for the fall semester in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to press release published Wednesday.
The facility will instead be used for physically distanced classrooms, as the teaching days will be extended. Those who hold Presenting Series season tickets were notified and given the option for refunds, exchanges or account credit.
Executive director Ted Barron said the Center will likely open in January 2021 for scheduled programming.
“Since March, we have all been challenged, committing to choices in the short term to mitigate longer-term impacts,” Barron said. “That’s why the Center is supporting our communities’ healing and comfort until we can again welcome you and many more to premier arts experiences.”
