Important cancellation and postponement information
As we continue to navigate through the ever-changing circumstances related to COVID-19, you can find current show status details and more information on this page.
Individuals holding tickets to postponed or rescheduled performances should maintain their current tickets. When events are rescheduled, tickets for the original date will be honored. DMPA’s Ticket Office will be in touch with Ticket Holders (who purchased directly from DMPA) as details become available with further information.
Since the onset of the crisis, we have been working diligently behind the scenes to reschedule as many shows in our 2019-20 season as possible, as well as some of the productions in our 2020-21 season. However, the booking of touring productions across the country is a highly involved operation during normal times. As you can imagine, this is now even more difficult with virtually all the theaters in the U.S. having to reschedule touring shows as well. Therefore, it is possible that further date changes may occur. We will communicate changes to you promptly as they occur.
If an event is cancelled (rather than postponed) an automatic credit for the total amount purchased will be made in the form of the original payment and you will be notified via email. Our Ticket Office operations will be limited to online communications and phone calls during this time and will not be conducting in-person transactions.
The performance list on this page will be updated regularly and will be the most up to date listing of each performance's status.
While we as a global society face this unknown crisis, it is important to remember the power of the arts to connect us as a community. Thanks to our loyal Donors and audiences, DMPA will be here to support our community when this crisis subsides.
AIDA will no longer be touring next season in North America. This includes the 2020-2021 Willis Broadway Series engagement scheduled for June 8-13, 2021.
