CLEVELANDERS DISAPPOINTED AS SHAW FESTIVAL CANCELS ALL AUGUST PERFORMANCES

Many Clevelanders travel to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada each spring, summer and fall to attend the Shaw Festival nestled in the prettiest little city in Canada.

Unfortunately, The Shaw has released this message: "The Shaw Festival is forced to cancel all public events and performances scheduled in August due to the extension of the Province of Ontario's Emergency Orders and the continuation of the State of Emergency in the Province and Niagara. In discussion with and under the guidance of The Shaw's insurer, it has become clear that scheduled performances cannot proceed as originally planned."

"While we are disappointed with these further cancellations, we are focusing our energy on planning for the future so that we can safely welcome audiences back to our theatres, hopefully in September - even if in a more limited way," said Tim Jennings, Executive Director/CEO. "In the meantime, we continue to stay in touch with our patrons through a number of digital and other initiatives and thank you all for your support."
