The Bologna Performing Arts Center at Delta State University has announced cancellations or the rescheduling of all events through April 30 due to developments of COVID-19.
The following is the release in its entirety from the BPAC.
To Our Patrons, Annual Members, and Friends:
Delta State University and the Bologna Performing Arts Center (BPAC) have been closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19. While we usually celebrate the fact that the arts bring people together, we are now in an unprecedented time in which being together poses enormous risk.
In response to guidelines from the Mississippi Department of Health and the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and effectively immediately, all events at BPAC through April 30, 2020, will be rescheduled or canceled.
We are hopeful that many events will be rescheduled for a time when the COVID-19 threat has passed. As the entire performing arts industry is currently affected, this planning will take some time and coordination. We ask for your patience and support as staff works to compile an update for each event.
If you have tickets for an upcoming event, you will receive information about your choices. To help us provide the best customer service possible, please wait until we have communicated information regarding rescheduled event dates and times before corresponding with the box office staff regarding your tickets.
In general, you will have several options:
1. If the event is rescheduled, you may transfer your tickets to the new date.
2. Return your tickets for a credit (good for 12 months).
3. Convert your tickets to a donation to BPAC.
4. Request a refund.
Event cancellations are challenging to any arts organization, as financial stability depends on ticket sales and donations. As you receive information about upcoming shows, please consider how you can help BPAC— and the thousands of students, community members, and artists served by this facility — by transferring your ticket purchase to a rescheduled or new event or by converting it to a donation.
