GCTC To Close And Reopen April 5 In Response To COVID-19
Great Canadian Theatre Company will close and reopen April 5 in response to COVID-19.
They have released the following statement:
We have been closely monitoring the progress of COVID-19 and following all recommendations from Health Canada, Public Health Ontario, and Ottawa Public Health. While Ottawa Public Health currently notes that the virus "is not circulating locally", and Public Health Ontario notes that "the risk to Ontarians is still considered low", we also recognize that the situation has been rapidly evolving, and we want to do our part to keep our communities as safe as possible.
With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision, in the interest of the health of our patrons, staff and community, to close operations until April 5th. We are planning for Daisy, which opened last night, to re-open on April 7th for a two week extended run, closing on April 19.
Box office staff will work with patrons to re-book their tickets for Daisy. For those subscribers and single ticket holders who are unable to attend during the revised schedule, we will offer a credit for up to 18 months for future GCTC season performances to be used by the patron or a guest of their choice.
We thank you for your patience and understanding in this challenging time as we work with you to ensure the health of our communities.
