(West Palm Beach, FL – March 13, 2020) The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts announces that it is closing effective today through March 30 due to the COVID-19 Virus.
“We have been closely monitoring the progression of the virus and that led us to making the difficult but necessary decision to suspend all performances and events through March 30,” says Judith Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer. “Our top priority as always is the health and safety of all those who visit the Kravis Center, our staff, volunteers and artists, and in this spirit we have made this important decision.”
“While we have had a number of cancellations by artists, we have notified those that are still scheduled to perform during the closure period. We also are diligently working to reschedule suspended performances and hope to eventually announce new dates,” she adds. “Going forward, we will continue to carefully monitor and reevaluate the situation as we get closer to March 30.”
How to Get Refunds:
Ticket holders for suspended shows will automatically receive refunds to their original method of payment. Purchases made by check or cash will receive a refund within three or four weeks.
