Covid cases force cancellation of some Theatre West Virginia shows

BECKLEY, W.Va. — COVID-19 has hit Theatre West Virginia causing the production to cancel scheduled performances this week at the Cliffside Amphitheatre at Grandview park near Beckley.

The TWV Board of Directors announced Tuesday the cancellation of performances scheduled for Tuesday night, Wednesday night and Thursday night of Rocket Boys the Musical.

The decision was based on “a number of confirmed COVID-19 cases,” a news release said.

The board will make a ruling later this week on Rocket Boys performances scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights. There will also be a decision on the remaining schedule of Wizard of Oz.

“The health and safety of the Theatre West Virginia Team will remain this season’s highest priority,” the news release said.
