Any shows that haven't been listed above are tentatively proceeding on their scheduled date. The situation is evolving quickly, and we will continue to actively monitor the situation as new developments occur.

Ticket buyers are encouraged to keep their tickets, as most shows are actively trying to reschedule their dates. REFUNDS WILL ONLY BE ISSUED FOR SHOWS THAT HAVE ANNOUNCED THEIR NEW DATES, OR HAVE BEEN OUTRIGHT CANCELLED. Those who cannot attend a rescheduled show, or have tickets to a show that has been outright cancelled, are asked to contact the Auditorium Box Office at (807 684-4444 or by email at boxoffice@tbca.com  Refunds will only be issued to the original ticket buyer with the original credit card.

We would ask for your continued support of the arts by not asking for refunds.  Any loss of income will only hurt your Community Auditorium, artists, and the promoters, all of which put it all on the line to bring entertainment to Thunder Bay - something we will all desperately need in the months to come.

Any updates to the list of show postponments or cancellations will be posted exclusively on the Auditorium website at www.tbca.com

Please refrain from calling the Box Office or Administration for updates on the status of a show, as we need to keep the lines open to conduct Auditorium business, and to stay in contact with agents, promoters, and event organizers, who are also monitoring the situation on a show by show basis.


WHAT WE ARE DOING:

F-29 is an effective one-step sanitizer on hard non-porous environment surfaces. Every spray bottle is filled by a diluting system which pre-mixes spray bottles and then test our product by using a HYDRION tester kit to make sure it follows the proper PPM for this product. F-29 is applied by a cloth, mop or spray device.

All cleaning is done before, during and after each public event.
