Trinity Rep cancels “A Christmas Carol” performances for the weekend due to potential COVID-19 case
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)- Trinity Rep cancelled performances of “A Christmas Carol” for the weekend after a cast member started feeling symptoms of COVID-19 on Saturday.
The theater said that Saturday’s noontime performance was cancelled at 11:30 a.m. in accordance to its health and safety protocols.
The cast member was feeling COVID-19 symptoms while at home and the understudy did not have enough time to prepare to perform in their place.
Spectators that had already arrived for the matinee were told of the cancellation and were refunded immediately.
Other ticket holders will also be refunded and given a link to an on-demand recorded performance of the play.
“We recognize that these cancelations are disappointing. While we never make the decision to cancel a show lightly, our commitment to the health and safety of our artists, staff, and audiences are extremely important to us and made this decision clear,” the theater said in a statement.
