An Update In Relation To COVID-19.
It is with heavy heart that we must announce the cancellation of both the Gingerbread Players Production of “The Many Disguises of Robin Hood” and the Zodiac Players Production of "The Case of Humanity Vs. Pontius Pilate" as well as the postponement of "Mickey Buckins Birthday Celebration." All tickets purchased for Robin Hood and Pontius Pilate will be eligible for a refund. We are currently working on scheduling a new date for the Mickey Buckins concert and will announce that as soon as possible. All tickets currently purchased will be honored on the new date once it is determined.
With the ongoing state of affairs, we feel as if it is in the best interest of both our Patrons and the Shoals Community Theatre to follow the request of the CDC in practicing “social distancing” and the cancellation/postponement of large gatherings to help slow the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus. (Please see the info-graphics below.) We want to thank you for your continued support of the Shoals Community Theatre and ask that you bear with us as we navigate these uncharted waters and stay posted to both our social media channels and our email blasts for updates on other future events.
