At the Old Church Theatre, the safety and well-being of our guests, performers, volunteers and staff are of paramount importance. In these uncertain times, we encourage everyone to assess their own risks and make decisions unique to their situation prior to booking a show. If you feel ill or even have mild symptoms, please stay home. We continue to implement COVID-19 workplace screening as per Ontario Regulation 364/20.
You must pre-book seats online, thereby creating contact information of
at least one member of every party. Tickets will not be available for purchase at the door.
We are limiting the number of people in our space at any one time. Make sure you have your mask with you as face coverings are mandatory. If you are unable to wear a face mask for the short period of time required, please wait until we’re outside on the “patio” to attend our events.
The Ontario government mandated the use of face coverings in the indoor premises of all businesses/organizations. HPEPH instructs that patrons keep face coverings on until they are seated at a table, and wear face coverings any time they are moving through a shared space.
We clean surfaces in the venue, including seats and tables, prior to each performance. Regular high touch point cleaning will be ongoing and hand sanitizing bottles have been added throughout the venue. Debit screen is cleaned after each customer.
If you like, you may order and pay at your table with your smartphone we can deliver your beverages to you.
Ventilation is an important factor in preventing the virus that causes COVID-19 from spreading indoors and at the Old Church Theatre we are able to open our windows for fresh air before and after our shows. During, if possible as well. We use a humidifier to help prevent airborne particles along with our air filter.
All audience members will be seated two meters apart from each other unless divided by Lexan barrier. Members of the same household or “bubble” may sit together. Please let us know your intention when you book your seat.
You may bring your refillable water bottle with you but do not bring disposable, single use cups and packages.
We suggest you take your coat to your seat.
Singers will perform behind lexan shield.
“Together with physical distancing, hand and cough hygiene, and staying home when ill, the use of a non-medical mask or face covering in an enclosed public space is an additional public health measure that may help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.”
