ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — High water on the Mississippi River has forced the Minnesota Centennial Showboat to postpone a week of shows.

The University of Minnesota says performances of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” from June 20 to June 28 have been postponed.

Tickets purchased for those performances will be honored for future dates.

Managing director Peg Guilfoyle says the showboat has tried to let everyone who bought a ticket know about the flooding and how to re-book reservations. Guilfoyle says the showboat players have never had to postpone due to high water on St. Paul’s Harriet Island.

The high water has not damaged the showboat. Performances are planned to resume July 1 and will continue through Aug. 16 as scheduled.
