Cirque Du Soleil will perform as scheduled

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - It's opening performance was cancelled on Wednesday, but Cirque Du Soleil Varekai will go on as scheduled Thursday night.  

Cirque needed more time to deal with a technical issue. It involved a lifting device critical for all of the groups aerial stunts.

On Wednesday, some who traveled from Columbus and Akron were surprised that the opening show was cancelled.

But ticket holders we spoke with are pleased that the show will go on from now until Sunday, and they say the Covelli Centre is doing everything possible to accommodate them.

Kimberly Flood of Austintown says, "Surprisingly it was very easy, it was very helpful to exchange my tickets, I was really worried about it. But we pretty much the same tickets."

Collin Chupa, Sales & Marketing Manager for the Covelli Centre, said, "If you want to exchange your tickets for another show on this run of shows that we have here, they're here until Sunday. So if you're able to make it to another show, we're happy to exchange your tickets as closely as possible to the tickets that you purchased, if not upgrade your tickets to just accommodate you."

You can also get a full refund on your tickets if you can't make it to one of the shows that run through Sunday.
