Since the pandemic shut down live venues, the staff at Popejoy Hall have been working to reschedule many of the events in their season.
The Popejoy Presents fall schedule has been postponed through December and some of the performances have been rescheduled in 2021.
Both the Ovation Series and Haverland Carter Broadway in New Mexico Series performances are affected.
“Anastasia” has been rescheduled for June and “Come From Away” is now playing July 2021, a shift that was announced previously.
“The effects of the coronavirus pandemic on touring shows has resulted in many adjustments for presenting organizations throughout the country,” said Tom Tkach, Popejoy Hall director. “In consideration of these changes and for the safety and well being of our patrons, staff, volunteers, crew and all the touring artists it became necessary to make adjustments in the season schedule. We consider this an extended intermission.”
Tkach said patrons who have already purchased tickets for any of the shows from the past season are asked to hold onto their current tickets, as the tickets will be honored for the revised dates.
Tkach said the safety and well-being of the patrons, staff, crew, artists and volunteers is the top priority for Popejoy Hall.
When reopened, Popejoy will follow all federal, state, local and university guidelines, he said.
Subscribers to the 2020-2021 season will receive tickets, with the new dates reflected, prior to the opening of the season in 2021.
New dates have been secured for the following shows:
Capitol Steps — February 28, 2021
Canadian Brass — April 16, 2021
Broadway Princess Party — May 2, 2021
Mariachi Christmas, (now A Mariachi Mother’s Day) — May 9, 2021
