Branson Regional Arts Council postpones events until May

Historic Owen Theatre Postpones All Events

In light of growing concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Branson Regional Arts Council is proactively preparing for the very real possibility of an outbreak in our area in the days to come. They are postponing all events and classes at the Historic Owen Theatre until May 1st.

"Our top priority at the Branson Regional Arts Council will always be the health and safety of all patrons, volunteers, students, actors, staff and others involved in events being held at the Historic Owen Theatre," says BRAC Executive Director Jim Barber.

Affected events include: The Odd Couple (comedy play) - now rescheduled to May 14-17; Song Writing Workshop (with Prince Ivan) - now rescheduled to September 5th; The Hunchback of Notre Dame (musical) - now rescheduled to October 8-15th; The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged (comedy play) - now rescheduled to Aug 6-9th; and all Arts and Youth Education Classes. Current ticket holders to theatre events will be notified of the date changes, and we will accommodate any necessary refunds that these postponements may present.

"We have no plans to reschedule any of our other 2020 season productions," said Barber, "but we will continue to monitor the recommendations of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) response to and guidance about the coronavirus disease. BRAC will follow the guidance of the CDC, the State of Missouri, and the Taney County Health Department about managing events accordingly."

Barber added, "Thank you for your support and understanding as we all stand up against this virus and work together to shorten the length of this International crisis."
