Joining Music Guild, Countryside, Genesius Guild and a number of others, Playcrafters Barn Theatre in Moline has canceled their summer shows due to concerns over coronavirus.

The pandemic has now nearly wiped clean the local theater slate for the summer, with only Moline’s Black Box Theater not having announced cancellations, and Circa ’21 holding out any hope of salvaging shows, hoping to still be able to stage “Saturday Night Fever” at some point.

Playcrafters announced the following on their Facebook page today:

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of our patrons and volunteers, Playcrafters Barn Theatre has postponed our May, June, and July productions. Future show dates are being determined and auditions will be rescheduled accordingly. More announcements will be coming soon about our remaining 2020 shows and 2021 schedule. Please help support Playcrafters by donating to the theater.  Thank you for your continued support!
