In an effort to prevent the further spread of the COVID-19 virus, The Big Canvas Theater has decided to cancel all performances, rehearsals and suspend all Big Canvas Training Center classes, effective Sunday, March 15th through Sunday, March 29th.
At this time, our hope is to resume Big Canvas Training Center classes on Monday, March 30th with the Big Canvas Theater re-opening with performances on Thursday, April 2nd. We will continue to monitor the situation and adjust these dates as necessary.
This has been a very difficult decision, but Big Canvas has worked closely with our Board of Directors and is following the guidance of city, state and federal officials to implement strategies recommended by public health authorities and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure the health and well-being of our audience, guests, artists, volunteers and staff. No cases of COVID-19 have been traced to the theater; we are acting out of an abundance of caution and concern for our audiences and students.
During this closure, Big Canvas will take increased measures to provide for the safety of our visitors through an intense cleaning of all spaces within Blackstone Commons.
This is a fast-changing situation, and one that presents new challenges and potential opportunities to all of us. We continue to rely on information from the Center for Disease Control, Department of Health and other governmental agencies for guidance. We appreciate your cooperation as we work through this situation together. We will continue to share updates as more information becomes available on our website BigCanvasComedy.com and all forms of social media. We looking forward to bringing Fast, Funny, Family Friendly Comedy for Everyone back to the Omaha and surrounding areas very soon.
