The winter peak in COVID-19 cases alters the schedules of even more artistic performances in Greater Cincinnati.

A statement from Northern Kentucky University says its School of the Arts will postpone spring productions for a week as the campus – and surrounding areas – tighten COVID-19 safety precautions. The Ensemble Theater, Cincinnati Art Museum, Contemporary Arts Center, Taft Museum and other organizations have also recently postponed events or have temporarily closed due to the coronavirus.

Earlier this week, NKU also postponed the start of classes due to issues related to COVID-19. The university will now begin the spring semester on January 18 instead of January 10.

The School of the Arts will delay dance and theater productions, including the regional premiere of The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson’s Musical. The new dates are below and tickets will go on sale approximately one month before opening. Most of the productions will take place at NKU’s Corbett Theater. Masks are mandatory inside.
