Dear Permian Basin Community,
Thank you for your continued support of the arts in the Permian Basin! The Permian Playhouse/Basin Theatre Works is continuing to follow CDC and community guidelines and has made efforts in safeguarding our patrons. The facilities have received a deep cleaning and sanitation policies are in place to protect our community members.
We are committed to the community and are delighted to announce that we will host our June summer camp scheduled to begin June 29. We have taken into consideration sanitation and social distancing requirements for camps released by the state COVID Task Force and have had to alter some aspects of the camp. Camp will only focus on one show, The Aristocats, and will run from 8:00am to noon, Monday through Friday, to allow daily sanitizing of the facilities. We do still plan on two weekends of shows but may alter the schedule should community regulations require it.
Also, in keeping with requirements by the Task Force, we are altering our audience policies to maintain 50% occupancy. Tickets for performances should be purchased online prior online but the limit is 10 per group. All tickets will be general seating. Staff members will directly seat parties of than 10 visitors together and two seats will separate groups. Likewise, we will rope off alternating rows to maintain distance in front and behind patrons. Seating is on a first come first serve basis. Because patrons are not discouraged from lingering in the lobby, the Playhouse will not open until 45 minutes before a performance and the audience will be seated immediately upon entering the building. After performances, cast will be dismissed from the stage door. Finally, for everyone's protection, ushers and box office staff will wear masks and we encourage all patrons to do so as well.
The safety of our patrons is our top priority. However, we will continue to bring theatre opportunites to the Permian Basin in any manner that we can during this time.
