The Winterset Stage has announced the cancellation of rehearsals for the two choruses which were scheduled to perform during the Pride of Winterset Variety Show. 

Practices were to begin on Monday, March 23 in the sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church, from 7-7:30 pm for the traditional chorus, and from 7:45 until 8:15 pm for the musical theater style chorus. Members were then scheduled to have continued weekly practices on Monday and Thursday evenings through April 16.

In fact, the show itself has fallen victim to COVID-19 and will not be held on Friday, April 17.

Organizers say it is unfortunate and are disappointed, however expressing concern that the health of the community and that of the nation far outweighs their desire to have this show. They don’t know at this time if the show will be rescheduled for a date later this year, or if they will just have to take a year off. They will make sure to keep the public informed of any future plans for the production.
