Upper Canada Playhouse cancels Patsy Cline tribute

MORRISBURG – “We’re not cancelling the season. We’re just cancelling our add-on show Sweet Dreams: A Tribute to Patsy Cline in March,” said Donnie Bowes, artistic director at the Upper Canada Playhouse.

“Hopefully our regularly scheduled shows for the rest of the season will still be on. But we’ll wait until April 20th to reassess where we’re at in this highly volatile situation and keep our patrons informed as we go forward. Like everyone else.”

Unfortunately fans of Leisa Way and Patsy Cline will have to wait until 2021 to experience this show which had a sold-out run scheduled before the current situation emerged.

Playhouse patrons will be issued either a refund or exchange for their Patsy Cline tickets. However, the theatre asks that patrons communicate with Box Office by phone or email ONLY.

If patrons must visit the Box Office in person, they are asked to adhere to social distancing and self-monitoring practices to ensure that all safety and preventative measures are taken.

A Screening Tool for these precautions will be posted on the Box Office door.

The Box Office will be equipped with hand sanitizers and all surfaces will be sanitized on a regular basis.

The theatre stresses that this is not a cancellation of the entire Playhouse 2020 season but a temporary suspension of all programming and rental activities until April 20 when the continuation of the 2020 scheduled season will be reassessed.

Upper Canada Playhouse is exercising an abundance of care to ensure that the safety and well-being of their patrons is a priority.

The theatre looks forward to resuming its 2020 season when it is safe to do so and will inform patrons about ongoing plans during this constantly evolving situation.
