The Last Three Shows of Thalian Association’s 2020-2021 Season Cancelled Due to Thalian Hall and Kenan Auditorium COVID-19 Constraints
WILMINGTON, NC – All Shook Up and Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame, Thalian Association’s spring productions slated for Main Stage Thalian Hall, and the final show of the season, The Crucible, scheduled for Kenan Auditorium in June, have been cancelled.
“We had hoped to return to the Main Stage Thalian Hall this spring, with Driving Miss Daisy or our scheduled musical productions,” said Susan Habas, Thalian Association Executive Director. “However, we were informed that the building would not yet be available for live performances. Then, as we prepared to produce The Crucible at Kenan Hall in June, we realized that COVID-19 constraints translated to a financial loss we just couldn’t justify. The good news is we are excited to return in the fall and we are planning an uninterrupted season of great theatre!”
“The historic theatre is currently open only for film with limited seating,” said Thalian Hall Executive Director Tony Rivenbark. “Re-opening for live performances is scheduled for early fall and we cannot wait to welcome everyone back!”
All season tickets will be honored for the upcoming 2021-2022 season. The new Youth Theatre and Main Stage show schedule will be announced in the spring.
Youth Theatre has continued this season with streaming and limited live performances. The final two shows of the 2020-2021 season Anne Of Green Gables and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be presented on the 2nd Street Stage at the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center with limited seating capacity. Online streaming will also be available.
Established in 1788, Thalian Association Community Theatre is a non-profit, membership organization dedicated to enhancing the Cape Fear region through live community theatre and arts education. Thalian Association Community Theatre produces five major productions annually on the Main Stage at historic Thalian Hall and professionally manages the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center for the City of Wilmington. The youth theatre program offers training and performance opportunities for children age seven through high school seniors. In 2007, Thalian Association Community Theatre was designated North Carolina’s Official Community Theater by the state legislature. For more information, go to www.thalian.org.
