Attendees are expected to wear masks while in and entering the building (they can be removed while seated in your assigned seats). Temperature checks will be done at the door, and we’re asking everyone to self-screen on the posted questions below.

So, saddle up a sandworm, and come out to the theatre ready to enjoy the show. Bottled water, popcorn, and beer (for those with valid 21+ id) will be available for sale in the concession area. Also, it can be guaranteed that the volunteers will be smiling broadly under their masks as laughs conjure life back into this cherished building.
