“As the Tower slowly and safely reopens, we stand ‘all for one’ behind the artists and fellow performing arts groups who continued to create and persevere through the past four months,” asserted Tower Foundation Executive Director, Ray Solley. “We look forward to the community rising as ‘one for all’ to carefully re-connect and enjoy music, dance, drama, and film together this summer.”
The Tower’s relaunch plan adheres to the guidance from Governor Brown, the Oregon Health Authority, and the Deschutes County Health Services. Here are some important changes you’ll notice attending a performance at the Tower Theatre:
- 6’ physical distancing between groups at all times.
- Face coverings are required and will be available to those who do not bring one.
- Intermissions will be limited or, whenever possible, eliminated entirely.
- Seating will be assigned by Box Office staff.
- Common touchpoints will be sanitized before, during, and after performances.
- Multiple hand-sanitizing stations have been installed for your convenience.
- Guests will be encouraged to leave by rows to avoid crowding while exiting.
