2020 ONU Holiday Spectacular canceled

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and health concerns

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and health concerns, “The ONU Holiday Spectacular” has been canceled for 2020. 

Although this decision is regrettable, it is also the only reasonable choice in the current environment, especially in regards to protecting the health of the many performers and others involved in this production, including Ohio Northern students as well as other members of the university and area communities, in addition to guests and theater staff members.

Plans are to again host the extravaganza in 2021 and beyond.

The fully staged musical revue ushers in the holiday season and has become a holiday tradition for countless individuals.

Alexander is a graduate of Gateway High School.
