GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Along with performances that are happening live with in-person audiences, below is an overview of performances that were to take place in Northeastern Wisconsin in the coming week. Due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, some events in the region are not taking place this year, and many are presented with limited audiences.

TOTALS TO DATE

Since the performance cancellations and postponements started around March 12, 2020, in Northeastern Wisconsin, affected have been at least 1,471 public productions and at least 4,774 performances, not counting club, casino or other engagements.

Many organizations continue to schedule performances with limited audience capacity. The tallies are mere shadows of performances influenced by the coronavirus.

Snapshot: The play is a peek into the life of dementia caretaker. Through the 13 short scenes spanning 2007 to 2019, the audience witnesses the tenderness, frustration and love of “Jack” as he cares for “Susie,” his wife of many years.
