Cathy Rigby cancels 'Peter Pan' show at Van Wezel in Sarasota

December 13, 2012 

SARASOTA -- Cathy Rigby won't be flying through the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall as planned.

Her "Peter Pan" Feb. 19 and 20 Sarasota performances have "been canceled due to the show's inability to lock in a second stop on the Florida leg of the tour, after they lost their original dates for the latter half of the week," the Van Wezel stated.

Ticket sales for the Sarasota dates were strong, the venue also noted in its publicity release.

"We are extremely disappointed with the show's decision, as it was one of the highlights of the season," stated Mary Bensel, executive director of the Van Wezel.

The Sarasota venue's recently added shows include a second performance of "STOMP" Jan. 3, "Elvis Lives" on Jan. 17 and Yo Gabba Gabba on March 21. The Van Wezel stated it plans to add more shows.

Anyone who has purchased tickets to "Peter Pan" can call the Van Wezel Box Office at 941-953-3368 for information regarding a credit to another performance or refund.
