Shows & Events Postponed

The City of Orlando decided to temporarily limit gatherings in city-owned venues, including the Dr. Phillips Center and Bob Carr Theater. This action is designed to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 and we embrace this decision, as we place the health and well-being of our colleagues, guests, students, artists and partners above all else. As a result of the announcement, several performances and events have been postponed or canceled, along with our education classes and initiatives.

We appreciate your patience as we actively explore options for rescheduled performances, events, educational classes and initiatives. We look forward to the time when we can get together again—knowing the arts will continue to inspire and unite us.

General Preparedness

  • The safety of our guests, students, artists and colleagues is our top priority—so we’re closely monitoring the situation and reports from local and national public health agencies.

  • We have rigorous sanitation standards and had already stepped up cleaning efforts for cold and flu season. This includes daily cleaning and sanitization of public spaces—like theaters, restrooms and lobby areas—plus administration offices. We’re also using hospital-grade disinfectant and increasing placement of hand sanitizer stations throughout the arts center—plus reinforcing the best practices for health and hygiene with our guests, artists and colleagues.

  • It’s important to remember this is a dynamic situation that needs tremendous flexibility in response. Our plans and tactics will change as the situation evolves and as we get new information from the CDC and the City of Orlando. So for the latest information, keep checking our site. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
