As Firehall Arts Centre prepares to wrap up its Music in the Courtyard series on September 27, the Centre is moving forward with a reimagined Fall/Winter 2020-21 program.
In announcing the Firehall Arts Centre’s programming, Artistic Producer Donna Spencer said, “Audiences are loving the Music in the Courtyard series! We have a fantastic lineup, and many of the performances are selling out. In early October, we will invite audiences of 50 back into the theatre where seating is being reorganized to ensure physical distancing and health and safety measures are in place. We know how much people are missing theatre and dance, and we want to ensure that audiences, artists, and staff are safe during these performances. We have some great 100% cotton Firehall masks for sale if patrons should forget to bring one, as everyone will be expected to wear masks while in the building. The works we have chosen will resonate during these challenging times and the artists with whom we are collaborating are so excited to come back to the stage.”
