Cirque Ziva cancels show scheduled for Vernon

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society has announced the cancellation of the special presentation of Golden Dragon Acrobat’s Cirque Ziva scheduled for Jan. 13, 2013.

The society was notified Sept. 20 by the troupe’s North American agent that unavoidable complications with international travel visas and American immigration was the reason for the cancellation.

“Sometimes even the best of efforts can’t thwart the risks and challenges of working with artists from abroad. Thankfully, this is an exceptional circumstance,” said Erin Kennedy, artistic director of the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

The troupe has cancelled its four scheduled Canadian dates that were to take place in January and there is currently no discussion of rescheduling the tour, she added.

The Vernon Performing Arts Centre Society says it will ensure that all ticket holders will have the option of exchanging their tickets for another society presentation or receive a full refund for their ticket purchase.

Ticket holders are asked to contact the Ticket Seller box office at 250-549-7469 at their earliest convenience to make appropriate arrangements.
