Our 30th Anniversary Season

COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS


Just before we closed in March 2020, we had started cleaning all high touch surfaces nightly with isopropyl alcohol. Since that time, we've learned more about how to create as safe an environment as possible for our staff, volunteers and patrons.  

Now that we're back inside for live performances, we are continuing to take the health and safety of everyone here, very seriously.  We will continue monitoring state and federal guidelines /regulations to be sure we are doing the best we can for everyone's safety.
