 Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe has temporarily halted the run of its "Light Up the Night!" open-air concerts due to illness: four professionals involved with the show have tested positive for COVID-19. "We are very concerned about those who are ill - as well as those who may have been exposed - and hope no one experiences serious symptoms," said executive director Julie Leach. "We are incredibly disappointed that, despite our plentiful safety precautions and care to protect our team and patrons, we must temporarily close our show. But our first priority must be the health and safety of the community; we will not reopen until we are entirely certain it is safe to do so."
