In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Columbia Basin Allied Arts (CBAA) Board of Directors made decisions on several spring and fall performances in June.
The board decided to officially cancel the March 2020 performance by Spokane Jazz Orchestra; this event was previously planned to be rescheduled. Ticket holders will have the option to be refunded, issued a voucher, or donate tickets back to CBAA, according to a news release.
The 2020 Spring Break free theater camp production of “The Hit-or-Miss Adventures of Watson and Holmes” has been rescheduled for spring break of 2021. The board also rescheduled two other performances; the Seattle Rock Orchestra, originally scheduled for October to April of 2021, and Croce Plays Croce, scheduled in November to November 2021.
Additional shows scheduled for next season include Nosferatu, a classic 1922 silent movie with a live soundtrack on Feb. 19, 2021, and Cirque Zuma Zuma, an African tumbling troupe scheduled for March 13, 2021.
All shows are subject to change, seating restrictions and other measures according to recommendations by state and local health officials at the time of showing, according to a news release.
This summer, CBAA will focus on the 5-year Pieced Together: Mural Project. The mural will be painted on the water cistern near the Grant County Fairgrounds, according to a news release. CBAA will also be working with public schools to explore arts outreach options during the coming school year.
