Jersey Boys, originally scheduled for March 17, 2020, is postponed with a new date TBD. With the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed the presentation of Jersey Boys to the 2021-2022 season with the new date still to be finalized.

July 23, 2020:

Due to the unexpected passing of Charlie Daniels, The Charlie Daniels Band & The Marshall Tucker Band concert at the Palace Theater has been cancelled.

The country and southern rock legend died July 6, 2020, at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee, from a hemorrhagic stroke.

Although we had hoped to still be able to present The Marshall Tucker Band, the agent is not prepared to reschedule or reroute any engagements at this time, given the sudden loss of Charlie Daniels and the ongoing uncertainty around touring and performing.

July 9, 2020:

Charles Esten has been cancelled. Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding touring and performing, Charles Esten has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of his scheduled performance dates.

May 21, 2020:

Alison Krauss has been cancelled. Although Alison Krauss announced the cancellation of the remainder of her 2020 tour dates on June 8, we were hoping to have a firm rescheduled date before we sent out our own notice.  We continue to work with her tour management team in efforts to secure a rescheduled date, but as of this writing, we have no specific information to share.

May 1, 2020:

This is one piece of the puzzle that sadly didn't quite fit.

An American In Paris has been cancelled. After the mandatory closure of theaters across the country, the Broadway touring productions have all had to make difficult decisions about the status of their tours. Unfortunately, the producers of An American In Paris have chosen to cancel the remainder of their tour dates, rather than reschedule them.

The Palace Theater is committed to the health and safety of all our valued patrons, volunteers and staff.

The widespread health concern about COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) is a reminder of the global nature of our daily lives and interactions. Because our patrons, volunteers and staff remain at the core of our mission, we believe we have an even greater responsibility to remain informed, and to be transparent and consistent in our communication with all our stakeholders.

In accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and following the Governor’s March 10 press conference, the Palace continues to monitor these current health concerns regarding COVID-19 alongside local, state, and federal government agencies, and we remain committed to the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. Measures we are taking in response to COVID-19 follow the recommendations of the CDC, will be ongoing and evolving, and will serve as a guide for similar situations should they arise in the future.

Specifically, we are:

  • Doubling our efforts regarding sanitizing and cleaning throughout our building, following best practices outlined by the CDC.
  • Providing hand-sanitizing stations throughout the building.
  • Providing gloves for event staff to reduce potential transmission risk.
  • Encouraging staff, patrons and volunteers to stay home if they feel unwell.

We remain open and our Palace Theater performances will go on, excluding the recently postponed Waterbury Arts Magnet School production of The Wiz and Charles Esten. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will inform you as the guidelines from the CDC and our local, state and federal government officials are updated.
