The Tybee Post Theater has made the difficult decision to postpone all live music concerts and theatrical productions through the end of August. We are working to reschedule all major events currently on our summer programming calendar; advance ticket buyers will be notified by email when new dates are set. Their tickets will be valid for the rescheduled event, or they may request a refund if they can’t make the new date.
Currently, the state of Georgia only allows concert venues to open with significant occupancy restrictions. Social distancing in sold-out concerts and stage plays in our small theater would be challenging, and at decreased capacity, even 50-75 percent, they would not be economically viable for the Theater. And even if those restrictions are lifted, we want to be responsive to the ongoing health and safety concerns of many of our patrons and our employees.
We will reopen the Theater for first-run and classic movies just as soon as we believe it is safe to do so and Hollywood is releasing new feature films for you to see. When we do open for movies, you can be sure the Theater will be super sanitized and safe with limited occupancy, new touch-free hand sanitizers, and disinfecting between every screening.
As always, we will continue evaluating operations and will make adjustments based on any new CDC guidelines or government mandates. We remain committed to doing our part to help keep everyone – our patrons, performers and staff and volunteers – safe.
We will be back – and we will return stronger and safer than ever. This is just an intermission! In the meantime, please keep in touch with us via email and on Facebook and Twitter. Stay safe, and we hope to see you very soon!
