Coronavirus/COVID-19 Event Updates

The health and well being of our communities is our number one priority. With the suspension of in-person classes and university sponsored events at Purdue, performances of Bonnets: (How Ladies of Good Breeding Are Induced to Murder) originally scheduled for March 26-29 in the Mallett Theatre have been canceled. Live public performances of Water by the Spoonful in the Hansen Theatre April 17-25 have also been canceled, however we are exploring the possibility of remote alternatives for presenting the work of students and guest artists on the project. We will share any updates as soon as we have them.

We have sent an email to our ticket holders with information on how to request a refund for performances or donate the value of the ticket back to the Department of Theatre towards a tax-deductible donation. To make arrangements, please call the Hall of Music box office at (765) 494-3933 or email to initiate a connection with a ticketing representative.

Please know how much we appreciate and depend on your support. We extend a most sincere thank you for your patience and continued patronage in these extenuating circumstances.
