Weathervane Theatre Delays Season Opening to August 1
Artistic Director Ethan Paulini and the Weathervane Theatre, a professional, award-winning, equity theatre in Whitefield, NH, announce that due to COVID-19 the summer season will start Saturday,
August 1 as opposed to the originally announced Friday, July 3.
"It is my belief that everyone deserves access to quality, professional theatre, said Paulini. "The North Country is an amazing place to create live theatre. I am working around the clock, with my incredible and dedicated staff, to try and deliver on those expectations."
With so much still to be determined, the individual safety, health, and well-being of Weathervane's patrons, staff, and all of the North Country has to come first. This delayed opening and modified season was made based on all available information from national and local health experts and officials. Weathervane will continue to monitor and adapt under their guidance with North Country's best interest in mind.
In addition to a delayed start date Weathervane will also be reducing capacity by 50% to ensure social distancing guidelines for seating. Post show Meet and greet has been eliminated for the season and hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.
