COVID-19 Update: March 13, 2020

By admin | March 14, 2020

The Vancouver Fringe Theatre Society staff and board (who manage Theatre Wire) are actively monitoring COVID-19 developments and looking to the Public Health Agency of Canada, HealthLink BC and BC Centre for Disease Control for guidance and recommendations as we institute new operational practices for our September festival and scheduled year-round presentations.

The safety of our audiences, artists, volunteers, staff, and community is always our first priority. With the new recommendations to limit international travel The Vancouver Fringe Festival and Paul Strickland Presents have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming presentation of Ain’t True & Uncle False at The Nest.

Both dream of passion productionsA Kid Like Jake and Cookies & cream collective‘s Consensual have also been postponed.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly regarding rescheduled dates and purchase options.

For up-to-date information regarding productions and performances sold through Theatre Wire please check with presenting companies directly.

The Fringe will continue to monitor this situation closely as our September festival approaches and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We strongly encourage all patrons to stay home if exhibiting symptoms and to remain up-to-date through the links provided above, along with additional trusted sources. The Fringe and Theatre Wire websites and social media channels will be updated with any additional planned actions, as well as any changes to existing schedules.

Thank you and we look forward to Fringing with you soon.

The Fringe & Theatre Wire Team
