FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Fort Wayne Civic Theatre’s “Hello, Dolly!” is expected to return to the stage after Sunday’s performance was canceled due to water issues with the city.
A Facebook post shared by the Civic Theatre Sunday afternoon said the cancelation impacted all activities in the Arts United building, including the matinee performance.
WANE 15 spoke Monday with a representative of Arts United to learn more about the water issues. Rachelle Reinking said temporary problems arose due to the City’s sewer replacement project, and future performances of “Hello, Dolly!” should not be affected.
“There was an issue related to the City’s sewer replacement project that affected the water main connection to the Arts United Center,” Reinking said in an email to WANE 15. “Arts United’s Director of Maintenance, our contractor, and a representative from the city are currently meeting to find a solution. We don’t anticipate this impacting future performances for Civic’s production of Hello, Dolly, and it looks as though we should have the issue resolved sometime this afternoon.”
Those who purchased tickets for Sunday’s event can call the box office Monday after 12 p.m. to reschedule for another show or request a refund. You can reach the box office at (260)-422-5220.
