As you all know by now, the Governor has moved us into “Phase 1” of reopening Nevada. What does that mean for Reno Little Theater? Well, not much just yet. The venue remains closed to the public. We are still unable to hold rehearsals, events, or performances. BUT – with every bit of information that we get, we’re able to plan just a little bit more and that’s a good thing!
In addition to continuing to create virtual programming, we’re also working on what it might look like when we’re finally able to reopen. As you can imagine, maintaining social distancing measures will require a lot of changes to how we operate. So, we’re creating and analyzing plans for smaller audiences, new space configurations, increased sanitation efforts, and much more. It’s a giant undertaking, but the safety of our artists and audiences is of the highest importance.
You may also be wondering about our production plans. We’re working on that, too, and I promise to have more concrete information about the status of the remaining 85th Season productions by the end of this month.
Thank you so very much for your patience and for hanging in there with us right now. And remember, if you haven’t done so already, please subscribe to Ghost Light TV on YouTube. We’re getting ready to launch two new fun programs: “Backstage View: Calendar Girls 2017” – a reunion of some of the cast and crew of Calendar Girls where they watch our production together and tell fun behind-the-scenes stories, and “Orient Espresso” – a partially improvised sequel to our January 2020 production that reunites the quirky cast of characters to update you on what happened after they disembarked the famous murder train. Dates for those events will be announced soon & we hope you’ll check them out!
