University Concert Series's January performance of 'Grease' canceled

Thursday, July 1, 2010 | 4:23 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — A performance of the musical, "Grease," scheduled as part of MU's University Concert Series has been canceled because of the company's travel schedule, according to a press release from the University Concert Series office.

The performance was originally scheduled for Jan. 30, 2011, in Jesse Auditorium. Big jumps in mileage that were not approved by the company resulted in one week of performances being canceled, including MU's date, said Kimberly Earnest, assistant director of the University Concert Series.

About 85 tickets have already been sold for the event, and all ticket holders will receive a letter giving exchange and refund options. These options include turning the purchase into a donation, exchanging the ticket for another performance or receiving a refund for the purchase price.
