Lied Center COVID-19 Update

Updated March 18, 2020

In consideration of the health and safety of our community, and in accordance with the latest social-distancing guidelines from the University of Kansas, the state of Kansas and the CDC, all events at the Lied Center of Kansas are canceled through May 15, 2020.

Currently, the following events are canceled:

For ticketed events, we will be proactively contacting ticketholders as soon as possible to communicate this update and resolve ticket orders with one of the following options.

Ticketholder options

  1. Refund in full
  2. Credit to account for future event
  3. Donate the value or your tickets to the Lied Center

The impact of canceling these events due to COVID-19 is significant, and donating the value of your tickets will assist in maintaining the financial health of the Lied Center and the performing arts in our community. With membership levels beginning at $50, you can enjoy these benefits in the 2020–21 Season.

If we are unable to make contact with a ticketholder within 30 days of a specific performance date, we will begin the process to issue an automatic refund, through the original payment method. Cash and check payments will be refunded with a check sent in the mail.

Note about Ticket Office

To implement proper social-distancing practices, the Ticket Office is available only by phone and email during its normal business hours (see below). The Ticket Office windows will be physically closed for the time being, but please don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email with questions and concerns.

Lied Center Ticket Office

Please note: we hope you’ll understand that the phone wait times might be longer than usual due to the volume of patrons who are impacted by the cancellations. If you are experiencing long phone wait times, you can leave a message with your request and contact information, and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also email ticketoffice@ku.edu or lied@ku.edu at any time.

Note for our Friends of the Lied

Unfortunately, our 2020–21 Season Announcement Party, originally scheduled for May 3, will be impacted as well. We are currently brainstorming and planning ways to move forward with the Season Announcement in some form or fashion. When we have more information, our Friends will be the first to know!

As the situation evolves, we will continue to work with campus and community leaders to evaluate additional measures and impacts. You can check this page for current information.

We are deeply saddened to cancel these performances, but the health and safety of the community and beyond is our top priority. We wish good health for you and your loved ones during these uncertain times, and always.

We sincerely thank you for your continued support.
