From Theater Guild Valdosta:

VALDOSTA, GA. – Nearly three months after pausing programming due to the Covid-19 pandemic Theatre Guild Valdosta is preparing to raise the curtain on its “brief intermission” and reopen the doors and stage to the Lowndes County community.

The reopening of Theatre Guild Valdosta follows Governor Brian Kemp’s executive order allowing for the reopening of live venues in the state beginning July 1, as long as they adhere to strict guidelines to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

As always the health and safety of our patrons, cast, and crew is the main priority at Theatre Guild Valdosta, therefore in adherence to the state’s guidelines the following precautions have been added to the daily operations of TGV:Addition of social distancing instruction and signageReducing house capacity to facilitate proper distancing in the audience and dissolve high-traffic areasRequiring all volunteers to wear masks, gloves and participate in regular temperature checksStrong encouragement to theatre patrons to utilize masks and face coverings when attending TGV eventsHand sanitizing stations placed throughout the theatreDisinfecting of the building during and between usesSwitch to a contactless ticketing and admission systemRequiring production teams to outline how they will implement advice from public health officials during auditions, meetings, and rehearsals.Alongside new health and safety protocols, Theatre Guild Valdosta also plans to continue to provide audiences with optimal opportunities to comfortably and safely enjoy a live performance by extending show runs with added matinee, evening, and weekend performances for select shows in the 2020-2021 season.

The first scheduled performance will be Mystery, Mayhem & Murder running August 6-9. The show is a holdover from the previous season that was interrupted mid-rehearsals. Auditions for the true season-opener Clue: On Stage are slated for July 6 – 7 at 6:30 pm with callbacks (if necessary) July 8 at 6:30 pm.
