A burst pipe has damaged the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre theatre’s main stage, forcing the rescheduling of several shows.
Staff were alerted to the emergency early Dec. 22, when St. James School’s Christmas Concert was scheduled later in the evening. That show was moved to the Greater Vernon Recreation Centre auditorium while some upcoming shows are being rescheduled.
“The safety of our guest artists, staff, and volunteers is our highest priority,” said executive director Jim Harding.
The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival on Dec. 29 and 30, as well as BOOM X Jan. 14 have been postponed to a later date.
Ticket Seller will automaticaly transfer tickets and notify holders about re-scheduled performance dates as soon as they are confirmed.
If re-scheduled performance dates do not work for you, as a not-for-profit box office, Ticket Seller is asking ticket-holders to take a credit on their account and apply it to future events instead of an immediate refund. Refunds incur added non-recoverable banking and credit card charges that altogether would have a significant financial impact the theatre.
“We are extremely grateful for the quick response of our service-providers who have stepped-in to support us,” said Harding. “We appreciate everyone’s concerns, patience, and support at this time.”
