JASPER — The Next Act has postponed all of its remaining 2020 shows at the historic Astra Theatre in Jasper.

According to a Next Act press release, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state, and local guidelines were taken into consideration when studying the viability of continuing with a modified season for the remainder of the year.

"In the end, though, the safety of our patrons, performers, artists, and volunteers was paramount, and we were not going to be able to bring you the type of experience that we hope the Astra provides," the press release states.

All tickets sold for the remainder of the previously scheduled shows will be refunded. Season ticket holders will be contacted via email with more details on their options.

Next Act thanked its performers, patrons and donors that support the Next Act.

"Our focus will immediately shift to putting together a remarkable slate of shows for the future events that are worthy of the generosity that is bestowed by this great community," the press release states.
