Updated Protcols and Procedures

6/1/2021

 

We at Rhino Theatre Group want to thank you for your support and patience during the past 14 months.  From virtual programing starting with Cancelled, The Musical and 2020 Summer Outdoor Open-Air shows and events at the Studio (going all the way until that frigid Halloween eve) and to re-opening the Mainstage in March, we have really been through a lot and have many of you to thank that we are still standing (albeit wobbly).  While our future is still somewhat uncertain, we are happy that things are moving in the right direction.  

 

At Rhino Theatre, we do not take any decisions we make or protocols we put into place, lightly.  However, we feel it is time to move forward and are ready to return the responsibility to our casts, crew and audience members, with some guidance.

 

Sanitizing stations will remain on-site and regular cleaning protocols will still be in place.  In addition, our portable air purification systems will stay on-site in all public areas.
