Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Walton Arts Center announced on March 20 that it will extend the postponement period for shows and events, including Mosaix and Artosphere festivals and Fiddler on the Roof, until May 9.

The extended date came from directives of the Center of Disease Control Arkansas, Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Fayetteville mayor Lionel Jordan to prevent a further spread of the virus, according to a press release.

“This is the appropriate decision for the health of our community, employees, volunteers and performers,” said Peter Lane, president and CEO of WAC. 

The WAC announced they will be looking at rescheduled dates for the upcoming events if possible. Forthcoming information regarding reschedules and options for ticket holders will come soon.

Patrons or ticket holders can choose to receive a credit on their account through the 2020-2021 season, donate their ticket amount to the non-profit WAC in support of its mission in a time of closure or receive a refund. 

Through email and social media the WAC plans to keep guests up to date with any further delays, reschedules or new information, according to a press release. 

The WAC Lobby is currently closed, but the Box Office can be contacted Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by calling 479-443-5600 or at
