Edmond Town Hall Theatre has decided to postpone its March 28 concert featuring “A Brother’s Revival”, in the interest of public health for Newtown residents and the extended community, given recent developments with the coronavirus outbreak. A new date will be scheduled. For those who have purchased tickets, a full refund is available. All other theater/building activities, including movies, will continue as scheduled; however, the Board of Managers is prepared to make real-time decisions as news continues to develop.
Edmond Town Hall completed its first music series on a high note with The Stella Blues Band in February and is excited to kick off the second series which is supported by various local sponsors. Vice Chair, Jennifer Guman said, “While we are disappointed to have to reschedule this show, our number one priority is and has always been providing a safe and enjoyable place for our community to gather. Our plan is to move forward with the series in the future based on public health guidelines.” The Board of Managers is taking guidance from the Town of Newtown and The Newtown Health District in monitoring reports from the Center for Disease Control regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). Edmond Town Hall has been proactive in taking the necessary steps to ensure the facility remains safe and healthy for all patrons, renters, and guests.
Edmond Town Hall, completed in 1931 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was a gift from Newtown benefactor Mary Elizabeth Hawley. It has served as the center of the community and the heart of Newtown since its inception by providing generations of residents and neighbors with governmental services space; affordable family entertainment through its proscenium theater; sports opportunities in its gymnasium; and, elegant space in its Alexandria banquet hall for gatherings, fundraisers, civic events or to celebrate life events. The Edmond Town Hall Board of Managers is a group of electors responsible for the planning and oversight of the iconic building.
