Carlsen Center Presents Announces 2020-21 Fall Season

Emily Behrmann, General Manager for the series branded Carlsen Center Presents, today announced a revised 2020-2021 fall season which leaves much of the fall programming cancelled or postponed. Final determinations on December programming will be made in October. The January - May 2020-2021 programming remains on the calendar.

General Manager Emily Behrmann stated, "Things have certainly turned out differently than when we announced the season in April! We had high hopes at that time we would safely gather in the fall, but the progression of the virus has changed things. The well-being of our volunteers, staff, crew, and community is paramount. We are taking our cues from leaders in Johnson County and State of Kansas, as well as at JCCC, and for now, have kept our event schedule intact in January - May 2021. We miss our audiences and can't wait to return to holding events."

She continued, "It's doubtful we'll be able to offer a true season ticket package this year. Subscribers and Friends of the Carlsen Center will receive early access to tickets that go on sale for the current schedule. And they'll retain their status for the 2021-2022 season."

"I'm grateful to those who have expressed their concern for us and have continued to support us with donations. We are all navigating these unprecedented times together, and our patrons have been kind and understanding throughout. They are just the best!"

Today's announcement includes the following fall performances that were to take place at either Yardley Hall or Polsky Theatre. In the coming weeks, the Carlsen Center will release additional information regarding the possible rescheduling of performances.
