WHITEWATER — Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Summeround recently learned that the 2020 season has been canceled out of an abundance of caution for patrons, students, faculty and staff during this period of disruption due to COVID-19.

“Over the years, many have derived great pleasure from attending UW-Whitewater student productions and we are looking forward to your joining us for the 2021 season when a greater sense of normalcy returns,” shared Dean Eileen Hayes.

The faculty and staff of the Department of Theatre/Dance are working on creative ways of teaching their coursework and working from home. Creativity is in large supply in the College of Arts and Communication, which will serve well as staff and students navigate staying safe at home.

“Our Warhawk family is strong, caring and resilient,” said Chancellor Dwight Watson. “I appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we navigate this situation. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 worldwide outbreak, and we will act and adapt our plans as appropriate.”
