Organizers have decided to postpone the New Albany Community Theater presentation of Hee Haw set for Aug. 13 and 14.
“After much discussion among the organizers, taking into account the current rise in local Covid-19 cases, we have decided to postpone this event,” civic center manager Emily Draffen said. “We are sorry for the inconvenience and encourage everyone who’s already purchased tickets to visit the Main Street office for a full refund. We will look to reschedule this event at another time.”
Hee Haw has been presented locally from time to time since 2008 using familiar faces in sketches, telling jokes and providing music. The event has often served as a fundraiser and plans were for part of this performance’s proceeds going to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
The Main Street office is in the former post office at 135 East Bankhead Street.
