Another day and more cancellations in the age of the coronavirus. Previously, The Wharton Center had cancelled the first week of performances for Wicked (April 1st - April 5th).

Now with Governor Whitmer and her "Stay At Home, Stay Safe" executive order, even more shows have been cancelled. But not all.

Michigan's Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, announced the state will be under a Stay At Home, Stay Safe Executive Order beginning Tuesday, March 24 through April 13, 2020, due to the rising concerns of the COVID-19 global pandemic. As a result, WICKED performances scheduled for April 1 - April 13, 2020, have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.


Patrons will be issued a full refund for their ticket purchase, including fees. The refund will be processed by the end of next week, using the same method as the original payment. Ticket buyers who purchased with cash, check, or gift card/gift certificate will be issued a refund check from Michigan State University within the next several weeks. Please note, tickets purchased through a third-party cannot be refunded by Wharton Center. For the latest updates visit


Wharton Center's ticket office will remain closed until the Governor's Stay At Home, Stay Safe Order expires on April 13. Questions can be emailed to

Again, all is not lost. After the 13th there are still shows tentatively scheduled for April 14th through the 19th.
