Enhanced Cleaning

Our cleaning routine has been enhanced to include thorough cleanings before and after each performance as well as spot cleans of high traffic areas throughout the day, as well as regular fogging.

Sanitizing Stations

Sanitizing stations have been added around the building. We encourage frequent use of these stations by staff and audience members, especially when entering and exiting the building.
