PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — On the day it hoped to resume performances of “A Christmas Carol” after a COVID-19 outbreak, the Trinity Repertory Company canceled Wednesday’s show because cases persist.

“As it turns out, shows scheduled for Wednesday, December 28 have been cancelled due to persistent COVID cases,” wrote the theater on social media.

Last week, Trinity Rep said it was “pausing” performances for almost a week because of “the number of positive COVID cases in the company.”

“While we’ve been able to continue some of our performances, thanks to the support of our amazing understudies, unfortunately that’s not possible at this time,” wrote the theater on Dec. 22.

“We love ringing in Christmas with this beautiful story and buoyed by you, our community of friends, family, and supporters. But, we must prioritize health and safety,” added the company.

Trinity Rep said it will be in touch with those who purchased tickets to Wednesday’s show.

“A Christmas Carol,” which is one of Trinity Rep’s popular annual plays, runs through Jan. 1.
