Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Info regarding how this event is being affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.:

The health and well being of our communities is our number one priority. With the suspension of in-person classes and university sponsored events at Purdue, our regular live performances of "Water by the Spoonful" in the Hansen Theatre April 17-25 have been canceled. In that spirit, we are exploring the possibility of remote alternatives for presenting the work of students and guest artists on the project. We will share details just as soon as we have them. You may request a refund for your ticket or donate the value back to the Department of Theatre to receive credit for a tax-deductible donation and support our future events. To make arrangements, please call the Hall of Music box office at (765) 494-3933 or email to initiate a connection with a ticketing representative. Please know how much we appreciate and depend on your support each year. We extend a most sincere thank you for your patience and continued patronage in these extenuating circumstances, along with our very best wishes to you and yours.
