The show must go on? We'll see

The Redlands Bowl is looking for ways to keep the Summer Music Festival on track.

In a video message to the public, Beverly Noerr, Redlands Bowl Performing Arts executive director, said the board of directors are waiting for guidance from state and local officials.

"We want to assure you that there are many ways the Redlands Bowl can present our 97th season," said Noerr. "Everything from live streaming to presenting our programs well into the fall, we will adapt as needed."

The bowl season is scheduled to begin on June 19 with a concert by the Redlands Symphony featuring Debby Boone.

The bowl and the Redlands Theatre Festival are the only Redlands major theater or musical organizations that have not announced their complete plans for the summer season. Most have canceled.

The Theatre Festival is scheduled to open its 2020 season on June 19 with “Romeo & Juliet” followed in repertory by “Bright Star,” “Noises Off,” “You Can't Take It With You” and “Young Frankenstein.”

Executive Director Shannon Cabanillo Galuszka said Wednesday that an announcement is expected soon.

To keep residents in the bowl spirit, Noerr said they would roll out special online programming over the next few weeks. This includes Facebook watch parties and programs for children.

"The bowl is more important than ever," said Noerr. "Whenever the time comes, we look forward to gathering with the Redlands Bowl family under the Redlands stars."

Redlands Councilwoman Toni Momberger voiced her support on her Facebook page.

"Beverly Noerr, thank you for not giving up on this season," wrote Momberger.

“I appreciate the creative approach you are taking to ensure that people of all ages in this community still get arts programs.

“This is one of the primary reasons Redlands is such a wonderful place to live.”
