Welcome back…

Dear Town Theatre family,

First, we hope that everyone is doing well. We have missed “doing our thing” so much. It has been a long six-plus months since we have held a production in our space. However, we now have the “go ahead” from the state to operate at a reduced capacity. So, to keep Town Theatre alive and operating for the next 100 years, we are moving forward. Visit our Mary Poppins page for details!

Please take a minute to read this information carefully. We think you will be pleased to know some of the precautions that we have taken to operate safely.

We have air purification systems in the house, in the Moreau Youth Theatre Wing as well as the dressing rooms that use needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) technology to deliver clean indoor air.

We now have a ULV Cold Fogger and HOCl maker – allowing Town to generate and distribute disinfectant on site. The Town auditorium can be cleaned in 15 minutes. We will also fog props, the set, backstage, dressing rooms and rehearsal hall spaces. (Think Ghostbusters for the musical theatre world.)

Seating capacity will be greatly reduced with distancing between units. There will be two vacant seats separating each party, one vacant seat in front of you as well as one vacant seat behind you. Our ticketing system automatically will generate this separation. The first two rows will not be available. If you need the wheelchair seat, please let us know.

We intend to use several doors for entry and exit. After you have made your reservation, you will hear from the theatre about your entry and exit point.

Per the City of Columbia and the Accelerate SC guidelines, masks will be worn by the audience while on-site, including during the performance.

Actors will be spaced on stage and will be wearing masks while backstage and in common areas.
