FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT:
MARIETTA, Ga. – Due to the growing threat of COVID-19 and following the direction of the Governor, Department of Public Health, and Center for Disease Control, The Georgia Ballet has made the decision to cancel production of Coppelia at the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre, which was scheduled from March 19 -22, 2020.
We have decided to present two in-studio performances, with limited seating, of Coppelia for existing ticket holders only on Saturday, March 21st, at 6:30PM and Sunday, March 22nd, at 5:30PM at The Georgia Ballet Studios, located at 1255 Field Parkway in Marietta. This decision was made of caution for the safety and wellbeing of our dancers, patrons, staff and production crew.
The Georgia Ballet’s full production of Coppelia will be rescheduled and will serve as the opening production of our 2020-2021 season. Tickets previously purchased will be honored at both the in-studio performance next weekend and at the full production in the fall. Patrons interested in attending the in-studio performances should call The Georgia Ballet office at 770-528-0881 to reserve a seat. We also ask that patrons planning to attend the in-studio follow the CDC recommended policy and practices as well. Accordingly, we suggest to all attendees:
- If you are coughing, sneezing or feeling ill, do not attend the in-studio performance.
- If you or a household member has recently visited China or any of the other places covered by the United States travel ban, do not attend the in-studio performance.
- If your immune system is compromised or you are in an at-risk demographic group, do not attend the in-studio performance.
- If you do attend the in-studio performance, thoroughly wash your hands, carry hand sanitizing fluid, and avoid handshaking or other physical contact with other patrons.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our loyal patrons. We greatly appreciate your continued support of The Georgia Ballet! Let’s continue to stay healthy together!
