The Wharton Center has cancelled five upcoming shows because of concerns about the Coronavirus.

The events include:

  • DRUM TAO 2020
  • Dog Man: the Musical
  • Of Equal Place: Isotopes in Motion
  • The Royal Winnipeg Ballet
  • The Klezmatics

The shows run between Friday, March 13th and Thursday, March 26th.

“The health and safety of all who visit and work at Wharton Center is our top priority,” the organization said in a press release.

There are other plays and shows scheduled at the Wharton Center during this time, but the decision to hold those events is up to the performers’ organizations, including the MSU Department of Theatre, the College of Music, and the Lansing Symphony Orchestra. They are all scheduled to continue as of 1 p.m. on March 12th.

Currently, the Broadway musical “Wicked” is still set to run starting Wednesday, April 1st.

People who have tickets for cancelled Wharton Center events will get information about refunds or rescheduled performances.
