LEGALLY BLONDE and 1776 Coming to Foellinger Outdoor Theatre

The Fort Wayne Civic Theatre has announced that they will be proceeding with their upcoming productions of the musicals Legally Blonde and 1776 in partnership with Foellinger Outdoor Theatre and Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation. In presenting these events at Foellinger Outdoor Theatre they will be able to provide adequate social distancing by blocking out seats in the 2,571 seat venue, and utilizing only about 19% of those seats (less than 500). The outdoor venue will offer the added benefit of fresh air, as opposed to recirculated air conditioning.

Working with the staff of Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation, they will be putting in place additional social distancing measures which will likely include cleaning of hard surfaces before and after each performance, venue staff (aside from individuals on stage) wearing appropriate PPE, use of online program books, and any other public health guidelines in place at the time of the performances. Patrons attending the shows will be strongly encouraged to wear masks when entering, exiting, and moving around in facility. Once seated, masks are optional, but social distancing must still be practiced.

"While we know many patrons may not be ready to return to a traditional theatre experience this summer, we are hopeful that these changes will increase the comfort level for anyone who does choose to attend our upcoming productions," explains Phillip H. Colglazier, Executive/Artistic Director, Fort Wayne Civic Theatre.
