In response to the ongoing public safety concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Asolo Rep announced today that it is making adjustments to its 2020-21 season. The theatre has postponed their season opener Billy Elliot: The Musical, originally scheduled to open November 21, 2020. The theatre has scheduled Billy Elliot to be the fall musical opener of its 2021-22 season. “The show would require a long rehearsal period starting in October for twelve school-aged children,” said Producing Artistic Director Michael Donald Edwards. “With schools uncertain of their own openings and rightfully limiting activities of all kinds, we felt we should not bring these young artists into our theatre.” The theatre also announced the cancellation of Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers, originally scheduled to open in early January.“The scope and timing of our production simply cannot be accomplished while ensuring artist, staff, and audience safety,” said Edwards. “That said, it is our dearest desire to move forward with the rest of our announced season of plays.
