As COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on arts and entertainment events throughout Las Vegas, Super Summer Theatre has announced the postponement of its 2020 summer series to 2021.

In an email sent on Wednesday, Super Summer Theatre board chairperson Christy Miller said the non-profit organization is “heartbroken” by the cancellation.

“It is our primary responsibility to keep our audiences, artists, staff and volunteers safe, while also respecting the exceptional theatre experience that we have worked to build over the past 45 years,” Miller said. “We look forward to welcoming our audiences back to the Meadow for theatre under the stars with open arms for the 2021 Summer Series.”

The 2021 lineup will feature shows previously scheduled for 2020, including Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins, Sister Act the Musical and Matilda the Musical.

Super Summer Theatre will contact current ticket holders “regarding options and instructions to resolve existing tickets,” according to the release.

Super Summer Theatre’s mission is to promote Nevada State Parks through theatrical arts and educational opportunities. Performances are typically held outside at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park’s Bowman Outdoor Pavilion from May through September and at the indoor ViewPoint Center in Las Vegas from November to March.
