Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba issued a statement this morning declaring a state of civil emergency for the City of Jackson. He has prohibited gathering of more than 50 people. His decision was based on information sent out by the Center for Disease Control yesterday.
The safety and well-being of our audience, artists, and staff are of the highest priority. New Stage Theatre will follow these guidelines and the mayor’s declaration and cancel all performances this week of Pipeline, March 17-22.
The resulting cancellation of various public events will have very real financial consequences for New Stage and theatre artists. Nationwide, thousands of theatre professionals’ jobs and health care are potentially affected. Transferring your ticket to a donation or credit supports NST during these uncertain times, and we appreciate your consideration. The following options are available for those who have already purchased tickets to cancelled performances:
To make a tax-deductible gift of your current ticket value, request a credit for a future performance, please contact our Box Office between 10:00 and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday at 601-948-3533 ext. 222 or email@example.com
We request you not visit the Box Office in person. We appreciate your patience as our Box Office staff processes requests.
In addition to the cancelling of the production of Pipeline this week, the following activities will be postponed until further notices:
New Stage Theatre will continue to update patrons, ticket buyers and the public on these and upcoming productions via email, our website, our social media channels, and our media partners.
We appreciate your patience as we make major decisions to ensure the health of our employees and patrons while ensuring compliance with rapidly changing CDC, Federal, State and local guidelines and mandates.
