The winter spike in COVID-19 cases is changing the schedules for even more arts shows in Greater Cincinnati.

A statement from Northern Kentucky University says its school of the arts will postpone spring productions for a week as the campus — and surrounding areas — steps up COVID-19 safety precautions. The Ensemble Theater, Cincinnati Art Museum, Contemporary Arts Center, Taft Museum and other organizations have also recently postponed events or temporarily closed due to the coronavirus.

Earlier this week, NKU also postponed the start of classes due to COVID-19 concerns. The university will now begin the spring semester on January 18 instead of January 10.

The School of the Arts will delay dance and theater productions, including the regional premiere of The Lightning Thief: The Musical by Percy Jackson. The new dates are below and tickets will go on sale approximately one month before opening. Most productions will take place at NKU’s Corbett Theater. Masks are mandatory inside.
