June 8, 2020 | ,

This summer’s performance of “Grits: The Musical” at East Central College has been canceled.

The musical was scheduled for July 23-26 in the John Anglin Performing Arts Center.

According to Robyn Walter, ECC vice president of academic affairs, several factors led to the decision, including the health and safety of audience members, performers and staff due to COVID-19.

“We believe canceling the show is in the best interest to promote public health and safety during our phased-in reopening approach,” she said.
