How the Outdoor Concerts work

Parties larger than four will be assigned multiple plots. Plots will be assigned based upon who purchased first. Earlier buyers will get closer plots. We will not have appetizers, upgraded entrees, and the dessert will be a cookie included with the picnic meal. Seating is at 6:00pm, and the concert starts at 7:00pm. Patrons will bring their own chairs or blankets.

Dinner, Show, and Social Responsibility at BDT

BDT box office and serving staff have been trained in up-to-date cleaning and social distancing guidelines as outlined by the CDC. All employees will be masked in all interactions with each other and with patrons. Performers will be 25 feet from patrons, dinner guests may be seated as parties no larger than 8 people, and each party will be seated at least 6 feet apart from the next.

All concerts in this series will be performed in a single act to avoid restroom crowding, and both dinner and dessert are served before the show starts. Masks are required to enter the theatre and may not be removed until seated. BDT Stage reserves the right to request masks remain on unless eating, though at the time of this publishing that is not the current requirement.
