Central Lakes College announced Friday, Jan. 14, the postponement of its January and February performing arts events due to the impact of COVID-19 in the community.

The decision was under the guidance of MinnState, the governing body of Minnesota’s state colleges and universities and the Minnesota Department of Health, according to Friday’s email.

According to a Jan. 6 email sent by the community college: “The Central Lakes Community Performing Arts Center is an affiliate of Central Lakes College, and as such we must adhere to masking protocols at all our events as set forth by the college.”

Those protocols require all audience members to be fully masked for the duration of performances at the Brainerd campus, including these previously scheduled ones that are now postponed:

  • Jan. 21: “I Am — He Said,” a celebration of Neil Diamond.
  • Feb. 10-12 and 15-17: “Amadeus.”
  • Feb. 18: Chris Koza.
  • Feb. 26: Monroe Crossing.

“We are currently working on rescheduling these events and will be in touch with all ticket holders with updated information as soon as it becomes available,” according to Friday’s email sent by the college.
Updates will also be posted on the Central Lakes College Performing Arts Center website at .
