The Evansville Civic Theatre in Evansville, Indiana, will be hosting its first shows of the season over the weekend.
Over the weekends of Sept. 17 and Sept. 24, productions of the musical comedy "Nunsense" will be held at the Civic Theatre's home on 717 N. Fulton Ave.
The musical comedy will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sundays, with tickets priced at $15 each.
Managing Artist Director Kevin Roach says the upcoming productions of Nunsense are a fan-favorite that will set a fun mood upon the Civic Theatre's reopening.
"It's a show that was so popular that Civic actually did all of its subsequent sequels, and I can't promise that, but we're doing the original and bringing it back to the Civic stage to kind of open up with," explained Roach. "We feel that people need something to laugh at, they need something to have fun with when they come back into the building."
The season opener this weekend comes after the COVID-19 pandemic nearly forced the over 100-year-old theatre to close its doors for good.
For now, some COVID-19 safety measures will be in place when the Evansville Civic Theatre reopens. Masks will be required inside the building at all times, and seating capacity has been reduced to 50% to allow for social distancing.
Additionally, all performers are required to either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or to wear a mask throughout their performance.
