The health and safety of all who use the Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., is our first priority.

While there are no known or suspected cases of COVID-19 at Bucknell University, on March 10, the University announced that it is moving to remote learning beginning next Thursday and continuing through the remainder of the semester.

As of today, the University has made the decision to limit large-scale public gatherings, including performances, for the duration of the semester.

Public health authorities advise that practicing “social distancing” is the best way to slow the spread of infection.

Following these guidelines, and erring on the side of caution, we are postponing or cancelling the following events: Danu, Peking Acrobats, Calefax Reed Quintet, Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and Vuyo Sotashe. We understand this news will be very disappointing to many, as it is for us.

We are looking for opportunities to bring many of these artists back to the Weis Center at a later date and will keep you posted as plans develop for the 2020-21 season. 

Ticketholders of the aforementioned performances may donate the value of the tickets to the Weis Center by calling or emailing the Campus Box Office by March 20, 2020.  After that date, a refund will automatically be issued for all tickets. Tickets do not need to be returned for donation or refund.  The Campus Box Office may be reached at 570-577-1000 or email The Campus Box Office is open Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
