Dio plans to open in June with ‘Jenny’s House of Joy’
PINCKNEY, Mich.–The Dio Dining +Entertainment here announced that it is hoping to open in June with its production of ‘Jenny’s House of Joy.’
“We have been instructed by our Governor and local health officials to once again postpone the re-opening of our local business through May 15, and so we’re rolling with this new information,” says Artistic Director Steve DeBruyne.
The Dio box office will remain closed until May 16. At this time there are no tickets on sale, however, the theatre is hopeful that it will be able to change that on May 16.
The next production, Jenny’s House of Joy, is set to begin rehearsal on May 18, with performances beginning on June 12. DeBruyne says it is his hope that The Dio will be able to stick with that plan, observing any social distancing restrictions required by State and Local Government agencies.
“We want to assure our guests that when the time comes, we will re-open. At this time, there is no risk that we won’t be able to once again bring entertainment to our stage. Our donors have been, and continue to be, very generous. Our Corona Kitchen Cabaret series also continues to draw donations as well (more information on that series in the articles below). And, our fantastic landlords, Gary and Robyn Dillon, have instructed us not to pay rent on our downtown location until we can once again welcome guests.”
The DIO will make tickets available for purchase again. It will exchange tickets for guests who had previously purchased tickets for the postponed production of Head Over Heels.
