In light of the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, we wanted to reach out with important info about the steps we are taking to ensure the health and safety of you, our audience. We are diligently monitoring and following all guidelines provided by the State of Utah and the University of Utah, and will continue to follow their lead in the coming weeks.Â
Here’s the impact on our upcoming performances.Â
PRODUCTION OFÂ ASS,Â March 27 – April 11:
Pioneer Theatre Company’s main stage production ofÂ AssÂ will be canceled.
As cancellations of performances and gatherings become more widespread in the wake of COVID-19, the financial impact on artists around the world is becoming a harsh reality. If you currently hold tickets forÂ Ass, through April 11, 2020, you will receive an opportunity to exchange your tickets for one of two upcoming plays in our 2020-2021 production. All fees will be waived for this period.
If you would like to support our mission during this difficult time, please consider donating your ticket(s) as a tax-deductible gift to Pioneer Theatre Company.
THE MESSENGER,Â March 13 & 14:
Play-by-Play readings, includingÂ The Fall,Â which will have a much smaller audience, will continue as planned.Â
This weekend’s readings ofÂ The MessengerÂ (which ironically, is about a public health crisis and a whistleblower!) will beÂ movedÂ from the smaller Babcock Theatre to theÂ main stage, in order to allow patrons to maintain an acceptable distance between themselves and fellow patrons.
PRODUCTION OFÂ SOMETHING ROTTEN,Â May 8 – 23:
Currently there areÂ no disruptionsÂ to this production. However, we remain committed to your welfare and safety, and therefore are prepared to make new decisions based on evolving information.
