COVID-19 Policy

Following the recommendation of the Governor and State Health Officials, and in the interest of the health of our staff, cast, crew, families, volunteers, and patrons, we have made the decision to cancel Annie, JR. on March 20-22 and March 27-29.

This was a difficult decision, as everyone has worked so hard to bring this production together. We are considering future dates for this production and will inform ticket buyers and the public once we’ve settled on those dates.

Ticket holders of the cancelled performances will have the following options:
• Ticket-for-ticket credit for the new Annie, JR. dates.
• Ticket-for-ticket credit for one of our remaining 2019-2020 shows (Seussical or Let the Good Times Roll).
• A refund for your full ticket order.

Should we be unable to reschedule these performances, ticket holders will still have options B and C.

Every affected ticket holder will receive this information via email and will receive a second email once the new Annie, JR. dates have been decided.

The Cultural Team can be reached by email at info@mauldinculturalcenter.org. We anticipate a high volume of emails, but will return inquiries as quickly as possible.

Please note that we are allowing our staff to work remotely in the interest of their health, so we may not be immediately available by phone until April 6. Should staff choose to visit the office, we will do our best to answer all calls and return as many voicemails as possible.

The decision to host or cancel lessons, classes, and meetings will be left at the discretion of their respective groups as we do not administer those. If you have a question about a specific lesson, class, or meeting, please contact the instructor or host. All contact information can be found at mauldinculturalcenter.org/contact.

The Mauldin Cultural Center is an entity of the City of Mauldin. For an update on other precautions the City is taking, please visit cityofmauldin.org. The City will continue to monitor the evolving health crisis and will update their website daily with any changes to our COVID-19 policy, as well as any changes to our course of action.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but wish everyone good health.♣
