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

Cathy Rigby won't be flying into Sarasota.

Her "Peter Pan" dates at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for Feb. 19 and 20 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 Sarasota venue stated.

Ticket sales for the Sarasota dates were strong, the Van Wezel 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 Van Wezel recently added shows include a second performance of "STOMP" Jan. 3, "Elvis Lives" on Jan. 17 and Yo Gabba Gabba on March 21. The venue 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.
