SPAC suspends all ticket sales due to COVID-19

In view of restrictions on movement within Japan and internationally due to COVID-19, SPAC is continuing to assess with all those involved the viability of staging its World Theatre Festival Shizuoka 2020 in May.

However, in line with efforts to contain the spread of the virus, SPAC has now decided to suspend all ongoing ticket sales for the festival productions of “Mary Poppins with her Upside-down Umbrella” and “Antigone.”

A decision on the future of this year’s festival will be announced shortly.
Please check our website at https://festival-shizuoka.jp/en/ticket/ and our Facebook or Twitter pages for the latest information.

We are very sorry to announce these ticket sales curtailments, which follow those for our other invited foreign programs, but hope you will understand in view of the global situation.

SPAC suspends ticket sales for invited foreign programs due to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the environment of the performing arts world. However, SPAC is in close contact with overseas artists invited to its World Theatre Festival Shizuoka 2020, and is doing everything possible to ensure the festival goes ahead.

Meanwhile, we are deeply grateful for all the encouragement and support we are receiving from so many people both in Japan and beyond.

Despite this, in view of the government’s March 18 announcement imposing immigration restrictions on visitors from Europe, we need to carefully consider artists’ programs and make any necessary adjustments.

As such, we are temporarily suspending ticket sales for the following productions: “Birds of a Kind”; “Ma Colombine”; “The Lingering Now – O agora que demora – Our Odyssey II”; “Love Triumphant”; and “OUTSIDE.”

Please check our website at https://festival-shizuoka.jp/en/ticket/ and/or our Facebook or Twitter pages for the latest information.

At present, we plan to present “Mary Poppins with her Upside-down Umbrella” and “Antigone” as scheduled, with precautionary measures in place to avoid contagion. Consequently, tickets for both these remain on sale.

SPAC’s response to COVID-19

SPAC is keeping a careful watch on this disease in Japan and elsewhere, and is in close contact with overseas artists invited to its World Theatre Festival Shizuoka 2020. At present there is no alteration to the festival schedule, and tickets will be on sale from 8 March as planned.

However, we hope all concerned will understand that this could change in the future. In the event of the festival or any productions being canceled, SPAC will refund all tickets already paid for.

Please check our website and/or our Facebook and Twitter accounts for the latest information.

SPAC will do its utmost to present this year’s wonderful lineup of exciting programs in the festival’s usual happy atmosphere, and we all look forward to meeting you at our venues in and around Shizuoka City this coming Golden Week.
