PAC is BACK
The Highlands Performing Arts Center, which has been shuttered this summer, is planning on reopening September 1, depending on Governor Cooper’s announcement this month.
In response to the Covid-19 emergency, PAC has initiated Procedures, Precautions and Protocols:
All audience members and PAC staff are required to wear a mask/face covering.
Gloves are available.
Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes are available.
Hospital grade disinfectant will be used to spray the auditorium/chairs/backstage/doors, etc. before and after each event.
All staff members and volunteers will have their temperatures taken upon arrival and dealt with appropriately.
A plexiglass screen has been installed at the box office.
The number of tickets will be limited.
Purchasing tickets online will be strongly recommended.
Entry/exit lines will maintain appropriate social distancing.
Concessions will be sold in a manner that will prevent crowds at the bar. Or you may pre-order online and have your beverages waiting for you at your seat.
The seating arrangement in the Auditorium has been configured into a Cabaret Style. There are only 60 seats available; two chairs and a small table separated five feet from the next two chair grouping, front, sides and back.
As soon as possible, PAC will begin screening the National Theatre of London encore performances. Available for viewing are Cyrano, The Lehman Trilogy, Fleabag, Hansard, and Kinky Boots. Great Art on Screen will also make a return: Frida and The Hermitage; other titles will be released soon. Please check the website for dates and times.
September’s lineup includes Neil Zirconia, Bravo Amici and Fleetwood Mask.
The bluegrass favorite Seldom Scene has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 3 at 3:00 P.M. and 7:30 P.M.
