Important Information about our upcoming production of Disney's The Lion King.

Due to the inclement weather and for the safety of our performers and patrons, we have decided to close school on Friday, November 16, 2018; thus canceling the evening performance of Disney's The Lion King at the Honesdale High School Performing Arts Center. The Friday Evening performance will now be held on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at 2:00 PM. All Friday evening tickets will be accepted on Sunday at the performance. (Friday tickets will NOT need to be exchanged, as our computer systems will automatically accept Friday tickets on Sunday.) If you cannot make the performance on Sunday, you may exchange your tickets to Saturday's performance (November 17, 2018 at 7:00 PM), or we will issue a refund on your ticket order. Please call our box office at 570-251-9831 for assistance in exchanging or having your tickets refunded. Our offices will be open by phone on Friday at 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.
