Dear First Stage Family,
Amid the public health crisis of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the subsequent ban on public gatherings of ten or more indefinitely, it is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the cancellation of the remainder of our 2019/20 season. The health and safety of patrons, students, families, artists, volunteers, and staff is of upmost importance.
STATEMENT FROM MARCUS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
All events that were scheduled between now and April 26th, 2020 have been canceled or postponed to a later date.
In accordance with statewide guidance regarding the COVID-19 virus the Marcus Center will be closed to the public through April 26th, 2020, including all Box Office walk-up windows, administrative offices, and the Morning Glory Gallery. We will continue to monitor the situation and extend the closure as needed.
All patrons holding tickets to Marcus Center events will be contacted directly via email regarding the status of any event that is being cancelled or postponed.
Additionally, The Marcus Center is working closely with our resident partners as they also announce cancellations or postponement of events scheduled to be at the Marcus Center in the near future. All patrons with questions or concerns around Milwaukee Symphony, First Stage, Milwaukee Ballet or Florentine Opera events should contact the organization directly.
We appreciate the leadership of our public officials and will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves to ensure the health and well-being of our audience, staff, cast and crew before anything else.
We look forward to welcoming patrons back into a clean and safe gathering space for our community to enjoy the shared experience of seeing stories unfold live on stage. Thank you for your patience and your continued support.
