Dear Patrons:

Within the past ten days, information pertaining to restrictions have changed rapidly -- nationwide, across Washington state, and at Gonzaga University, due to the coronavirus. After gathering collectively and meeting with University leadership, we have made the following decisions:

  • In the Myrtle Woldson Performing Arts Center, Arcis Saxophone Quartet, Wonderheads: Grim and Fischer, James Tormé, and Neil Berg’s 50 Years of Rock-N-Roll are now postponed, and we are working with the artists to select new performance dates in the 2020-2021 season. Rescheduled dates for ticketed events will be provided to current ticket buyers as information becomes available.
  • All Gonzaga Theatre & Dance Department events scheduled to take place in the Myrtle Woldson Performing Arts Center, Magnuson Theatre, and downtown Urban Arts Center have been canceled.
