Hanover Senior High School's fall musical will go on after police investigated a social media threat that caused school officials to postpone Saturday's performance.

"The police have identified the source of the threat which was not credible," a Facebook post On Hanover Public’s Facebook page reads. "(Sunday's) show will go on at 2 and all tickets for (Saturday's) show will be honored at that time."

For those unable to make it to the 2 p.m. showing on Dec. 15, refunds will be issued. 

On Dec. 14, a post made on Hanover Public School District's Facebook page at about 3:30 p.m. detailed the threat, noting that it came from social media.

"The police were immediately contacted and are investigating," the post reads. "Regretfully, due to the safety concern, we are postponing tonight's 7 p.m. musical performance."
