CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF THEATRE JACKSONVILLE
On March 11, Theatre Jacksonville cancelled the 100 Year Big Hat & Jazz Birthday Brunch.
We are so disappointed to share this news with you. The show must go on is in our blood! However, with the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) impacting more and more communities each day, we feel that hosting a large public event is not the right thing as we deal with the ramifications of this unprecedented situation.
As recently as Monday, our public health leaders have stated “while there’s no evidence that closing any gatherings will make the community safer, avoiding large public gathering will slow the transmission of the virus.” Cancelling our brunch is one way to honor and respect our loyal supporters and follow the recommended guidelines.
Although our March 22 brunch will no longer take place, we will continue to work hard to bring you the live performances you love. We still have several amazing upcoming productions as part of our 100th Anniversary line-up, and we encourage you to come see them to support Theatre Jacksonville. As always, we continue to strive toward our purpose – to enrich lives and broaden cultural understanding through community participation in theatre arts.
