Rhino Theatre is beginning preparations for a phased re-opening of our entertainment venues. Our Mainstage location is temporarily closed and will likely remain so for the remainder of the summer.  However, we are currently working towards the reopening of our Studio 237 location with the addition of a BRAND NEW Outdoor Open Air Stage which will be home to our RHINO IN THE PARK-ing lot summer performance series. The scheduled list of summer shows is still to be determined, and we are currently awaiting on further guidance that will allow for the gathering of at least 50 people in outdoor spaces with continued social distancing and face covering guidelines remaining in place.
