Krannert Center canceled Spring 2021 public, in-person performances

This probably isn’t a surprise, as we watch cases rise in the area. From Director Mike Ross:

“While we long to gather with you again in our theatres in person as soon as that is possible, I assure you that the Center remains firmly committed to its mission and core values. We will continue to explore opportunities to connect across the communities we serve and will support artists — locally, nationally, and internationally — in their creative pursuits despite the decimating effects of the pandemic on their livelihoods. And we will do so with a mindful and intentional embrace of the values associated with individual, collective, and societal well-being and in concert with our college, campus, and community colleagues and partners to address the injustices, suffering, loss, and other wrongs associated with our country’s longstanding history of racism, discrimination, and hatred.” 

They will continue with virtual offerings, like the upcoming Manual Cinema’s A Christmas Carol.

Check Krannert’s website and social media page for updated information on their offerings.
