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.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
