It is with regret that The Dixon Historic Theatre has had to withdraw the events planned for September 3rd and 4th. The Dixon Theatre is working with the artists to establish a future date to welcome Broadway star Franc D’Ambrosio back to Dixon.
Recently issued state mandates do not currently allow any masking exception for artists on stage, which means they cannot perform the event as planned. We are working diligently with the Illinois Department of Health to provide alternate COVID-19 safety protocols for our performers, but these cannot be in place in time for the September 4 weekend.
The Dixon Theatre Board of Directors do not want to risk anyone’s health and wellness due to the COVID‐19 virus and has decided to halt this production in order to work with the state to find a way to move forward with the safety of our patrons, staff and entertainers in mind.
The artists and staff were looking forward to sharing this Broadway experience with you, but public safety must come first at this time of renewed COVID-19 concern.
The box office will be contacting all patrons in the coming days to arrange for ticket refunds. For further questions or concerns regarding the postponement please contact our box office at 815-508-6324.
The Dixon Theatre Board thanks the community for its understanding and continued support through these difficult times.
