Embassy Theatre works to assess, address schedule

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - The management team at the Embassy Theatre is advising ticket-holders that it is working as quickly as possible to determine what postponements and cancellations may happen.

The historic downtown theatre itself remains open right now.

Embassy officials say they are in contact with the Allen County Health Department and are also monitoring how peer venues are reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak.

But even with increased sanitation efforts and the possibility of limits on the size of the audience, the Embassy acknowledges the likelihood of a significant disruption to the schedule of events.

"As a result, the Embassy is working as quickly as possible and with its partners and renters to postpone, reschedule and manage upcoming events within (the next 30 days)," officials said in a statement. "We will notify ticket holders of any event change as soon as we have that information."

Saturday night's performance of Carmina Burana was called off on Thursday.

The Phil has also canceled late March performances of "A Cole Porter Celebration" that were set for the Embassy, along with several shows at other venues.
