Re-scheduled New Shanghai Circus appearance canceled

By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - The New Shanghai Circus was scheduled to perform in Gainesville at Pearce Auditorium on Thursday night but due to the winter storm, the performance was canceled and re-scheduled for a Sunday Matinee tomorrow, Feb. 16. Now, the performance has been scratched altogether.

Gladys Wyant, Executive Director, of The Arts Council, which was bringing the group to town explained in a posting on Facebook":

"The Arts Council regrets in having to inform you that…due to circumstances out of its control, The New Shanghai’s National Tour has been cancelled due to diplomatic circumstances and the group is unable to fulfill its scheduled performances….which includes our show in Gainesville.

The Arts Council apologizes for the inconvenience. We are currently working with the artist representative to replace this event with another nationally/internationally acclaimed group. Please, we request your cooperation until we have been able to resolve these unexpected issues. You WILL hear from us in the very near future regarding your ticket options.

You may contact our office at 770.534.2787 or look for updates on our website at

Again, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience. No one is more disappointed than we are that this program cannot make it to Gainesville.

We will be in the office on Monday at 9:00am.

Thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your support."
