2020 Season Postponed Through November

On behalf of The Lyceum’s board of directors and staff:

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the remainder of our summer/fall programming: Murder on the Orient Express, Our Town, Charley’s Aunt, and Heartbreak Hotel.

We have also postponed our trips to London and New York to the spring, as well as our special presentations of Count Basie Orchestra and Don Schlitz. Our Murder Mystery Weekend is postponed to October 2021.

In a statement from the Saline County Health Department, Administrator Tara Brewer said:
“Our hearts are broken that The Lyceum is postponing the remainder of its season through November, but in this uncertain time this is best for their actors, employees and patrons. Saline County Health Department supports The Lyceum in this difficult decision, and agree that opening the doors at this time may be an unnecessary risk.”

We will continue to evaluate the practicality of A Christmas Carol in the coming months.

Through a careful examination of the economic ramifications and potential public health impact of continuing our season in August, and after hearing from you, we have made the difficult decision that it is in the best interest of all of us to wait until next year to celebrate our 60th Season. We firmly believe this was the only decision that will allow us to reopen ready and strong in 2021 – and get back to filling your summers with Lyceum magic!

For those of you who have tickets to the remaining shows, we ask you to fill out our ticketing form (see button above for the link – it is important to complete this form even if you had tickets to the first three shows and previously completed that ticketing form) to let us know how you’d prefer for us to handle your ticket purchase for these shows. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to take care of you.

If you can, please consider turning your ticket(s) into a tax-deductible donation. If you convert your ticket to a donation, it will double in value for us thanks to a special challenge grant of $100,000 has been made possible by: Stan & Kay Kuecker with a lead gift, Hank Waters & Vicki Russell, Orscheln Farm & Home, John Landrum, Rita Burnstad, Dave & Nancy Griggs, and Rich & Debbie Lawson.

You can also transfer your ticket(s) to corresponding date(s) in 2021 (see chart below for reference).

Finally, we miss seeing you, Lyceum Family. We will weather this storm together and celebrate our reopening with renewed enthusiasm and joy next year! Stay safe, stay healthy and we will see you again soon. Please note our box office is currently closed to in person visits and operating by phone during limited business hours (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.); we will be reaching out to ticketholders for these productions as needed.
