The Putnam County Playhouse has announced that its August production of the musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” has been canceled.

A member of the “Joseph” company tested positive for COVID-19 and the production was halted last week.

Refunds are available for those who have pre-purchased tickets for the show. The box office at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre will be open Aug. 9-14 and Aug. 16-21 from 5-8 p.m. each of those days only. Those wishing to receive a refund should bring their tickets to the box office on any of those days. Refunds will not be offered after Aug. 21.

The 60th season of the Putnam County Playhouse will end in September with a production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy “You Can’t Take It with You.”

  • I was sitting home ready to go to Playhouse and reading the Banner when I read it had been cancelled! I was so very bummed! I was looking forward to this show! I am so sorry for the actors who I am sure have worked hard on their parts for the show. I really hope this production will be on the list next season and these actors will be ready to perform for us!!!

    It was probably the coat that tested positive per a PCR test.
