• COVID-19 Precautions

    by  • August 10, 2021


    In order to help ensure the health and safety of all our audience members, cast & crew members, and volunteers, we are requiring masks to be worn inside our building at all times, except when actively consuming liquid or food.

    We further are closing ticket sales at 75 per performance to better accommodate the ability for audience members to distance themselves from others, not part of their group, while seated in the theatre.

    Please be safe,
