Segerstrom Center for the Arts has announced it will cancel or postpone most outdoor performances and large events scheduled at its Julianne and George Argyros Plaza in December, due to the recently issued stay-at-home order and rising coronavirus cases.

As such, a performance on Friday by Broadway singer Megan Hilty, of NBC’s musical drama “Smash,” has been rescheduled to Feb. 13, 2021, while a Nutcracker Tea Party fundraiser planned for Saturday and Sunday will now be held in a virtual format.

Two holiday-themed movie nights — a Dec. 18 viewing of the movie “Elf” and “Frosty & Rudolph” on Dec. 19 — have been canceled. However, appearances by Grammy Award-winning producer and vocalist Steve Tyrell, scheduled for Dec. 29 and 30, are currently set to run as planned until further notice.

While state restrictions prohibit performances and gatherings of people, some allowances are made in the guidelines for outdoor activities. Therefore, the center will offer its planned outdoor yoga classes on Wednesday and Dec. 16 from 4 to 5 p.m. Participants will be assigned their own distanced space, and masks are required.

“[Our] most important goal is to create an environment in which our audiences, artists, volunteers, students, and staff feel safe,” officials said in a release issued Monday. “We appreciate the leadership of our public officials and will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves to ensure the health and well-being of all residents of Orange County.”

Patrons who have already purchased tickets will have the value of the ticket added to their Segerstrom account as a credit they can apply to future purchases.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is at 615 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa. For more information and updates, visit scfta.org or call (714) 556-2787.
