Stamford’s Palace cancels ‘SpookTacular’ over COVID-19 spikes in nearby communities
Halloween comes with its own magic and Stamford’s Palace Theatre had planned to harness that to present its first in-person live event since the pandemic began.
Unfortunately, the family-friendly production — a Halloween-themed circus extravaganza — will not take place, after all.
Michael Moran, president and CEO of the venue, said The Palace Theatre “has made the difficult decision to cancel ‘SpookTacular’ due to several COVID-19 spikes in nearby communities.”
Two performances had been planned for Oct. 30. The Palace Theatre has been working closely with local officials surrounding its reopening and monitoring recent trends, Moran said in a news release.
“Our first priority is the health and safety of our loyal patrons and staff — it is our responsibility always to act in their best interest.”
Those with tickets may contact the box office or point-of-purchase reseller for a refund.
“As we await the day that the doors of The Palace can once again open, we are busy ensuring it’s done as safely and seamlessly as possible,” he said.
