Due to the updated recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control of limiting gatherings to 50 people or less, the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre will close for the next eight weeks.
Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre officials have announced the remaining performances of “Saturday Night Fever” and the upcoming scheduled production of “An American in Paris” have been canceled.
On March 14, Beef and Boards made the decision to limit the capacity to 250 for shows over the weekend per Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s decision to limit gatherings to that figure.
“Saturday Night Fever” was scheduled to run through March 29 and “An American in Paris” was scheduled to start April 2.
Ticket holders for these shows will be contacted by Beef and Boards box office staff with options available to them.
At this time, Beef and Boards planned to reopen with the opening of “The Sound of Music” as scheduled May 14.
The statement from Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre family read: “We had hoped to continue operations in a limited capacity, but ultimately the health and safety of our guests, casts, and employees are of utmost priority and we will take the appropriate steps to limit unnecessary contact. We feel a responsibility to do all we can in the face of this pandemic, and we look forward to entertaining you in the future.
“Please continue to do all you can to protect yourselves and your families at this challenging time. We appreciate your continued understanding and support.”
