BERNARDS TWP., NJ _ Trilogy Repertory Co. announced this week that Fellowship Senior Living has canceled all upcoming performances of "Arsenic and Old Lace" planned by the Basking Ridge-based theater company because of concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Other scheduled performances by the N.J. Ballet, set for March 21 and 22 at the Fellowship Cultural Arts Center, have also been canceled, according to the Fellowship Cultural Arts Center website. 

The performances at the recently opened cultural arts center, located on the same property with housing for senior citizen residents, were called off on the advice of the New Jersey State Department of Health, according to the Trilogy announcement. Fellowship Senior Living, and the arts center, are located at 8000 Fellowship Road off Allen Road in Basking Ridge.

"Fellowship has a particularly at-risk population and is doing everything it can to protect the Fellowship residents," the announcement said.
