The hotel-casino sent the following statement:

Due to Governor Steve Sisolak’s recent directives of no more than 50 people allowed at public gatherings for at least the next three weeks starting tomorrow, all performances of “This is Christmas,” which was scheduled to open on Friday, Nov. 27 at The Venetian Resort, have been cancelled.
The show’s producers want to thank the public for their support of the show, as well as the performers, the team at The Venetian Resort, and everyone involved with “This is Christmas” who have been working tirelessly to launch the show this Friday. They are hopeful that they can bring “This is Christmas” to audiences in Las Vegas during the 2021 holiday season, and wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday this year.

All tickets for performances of “This is Christmas” will be refunded at the point of purchase
