In response to the Executive Order from North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper to suspend all gatherings of 100 or more people, Blumenthal Performing Arts have suspended all public events in its facilities from March 14 through April 12, 2020. This includes events at Belk Theater, Booth Playhouse and Stage Door Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center; McGlohon Theater and Duke Energy Theater at Spirit Square; and Knight Theater.
“The safety of our guests, our volunteers, and our staff must always be our primary concern and that is why we are taking this action,” said Blumenthal President Tom Gabbard. Events slated in the aforementioned Blumenthal managed facilities scheduled between March 14 and April 12 have either been postponed or canceled. Blumenthal’s presentation of The Color Purple at Ovens Auditorium (3/23-3/26) has also been postponed.
Blumenthal is working to identify new dates for the affected events. Rescheduled dates for ticketed events will be provided to current ticket buyers as information becomes available. Ticket holders are encouraged to keep existing tickets until new dates are announced. If new dates are not acceptable, buyers will be refunded in full.
