We’re so excited to return to live performances this summer.

But our first priority is to keep our artists, audience, and community safe.

So we’re making some changes and taking special care. Here’s what you can expect when you return to BVT this summer….

We're Moving Outside!

To help maintain fresh clean air for all, we’ll be performing “al fresco” as they say, on a stage we’ll construct in the BVT parking lot. The theater lobby will be open for restroom use only. And we won’t be offering concessions sales this summer.

To observe social distancing,  we‘re limiting the number of patrons for each performance to 50. (If guidance from the state in the coming months allows us to increase that number, there may be more seats available.)
Seats will be placed 6 feet apart.

Safer Ticketing

All tickets must be purchased in advance–up to two hours before the performance– and may only be purchased by phone (call 585 374 6318), or online. There will be no in person or walk up sales.

When you purchase your ticket you’ll be asked for a phone number for contact tracing.

What You Can Do

Masks will be mandatory for all patrons at all times even while seated.

We’ll ask you not to attend if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID 19, have tested positive, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive. (Any ticket holder who can’t attend due to illness or exposure will be provided with a virtual link to enjoy the show safely from home .)
