CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Playhouse Square has announced a last-minute cancelation for the Sunday matinee performance of “Wicked.”

The musical was fixed to return to the stage Sunday afternoon following a straight week of COVID-related cancelations.

But just minutes before the show was set to begin, Playhouse Square shared on Facebook that there weren’t enough performers due to some cast members testing positive for COVID-19.

Other performances were canceled between Dec. 20 and Dec. 24 due to “rising COVID-19 concerns and the detection of breakthrough cases within the company,” according to a news release.

Playhouse Square said the 6:30 p.m. Sunday show is expected to go on as scheduled.

Those who purchased tickets directly from Playhouse Square via the box office, phone or website will automatically receive a full refund including handling fees.

Credit card refunds will appear on accounts within seven to 10 days.
