Fish Creek, Wis. (June 9, 2020) – The 2020/21 Main Stage Season lineup is the result of eight months of planning, scheduling, and negotiating, plus another two and a half months of contingency planning, adopting safety protocols, and rescheduling.
Many think it is the best season ever, and we hope that we are able to share all of it with you – friends, community, and audience – inside Door County’s favorite performing arts venue, free of health concerns and gathering restrictions.
While July and August shows have been rescheduled for 2021, DCA staff planning to return to the Auditorium in September with a socially distanced seating chart, masks, and adjusted event management and crowd flow measures.
Tickets are now on sale! This year, because of the major road construction project surrounding DCA, tickets will be sold online or over the phone. Their offices will remain closed to the public through the end of June. DCA look forward to seeing you at showtime and thanks you for your support and patience as they navigate these changes and new territory!
NEW PROTOCOLS FOR 2020
Here are some of the things that DCA is doing to keep patrons, staff, volunteers, and artists safe this fall and winter.
DCA’s seating capacity is reduced significantly to 37.5% (or 262 seats) for fall and winter 2020. This measure – along with other traffic flow and night-of-show event management – are informed by WEDC’s and Door County Health Department’s guidelines for entertainment venue social distancing.
DCA acknowledges that things continue and will continue to change and evolve. They will periodically revisit these protocols prior to any events taking place in the fall. If the state and county health departments’ recommended gathering restrictions and social distancing recommendations ease, additional seating may become available.
DCA will offer full ticket refunds if a show is postponed or cancelled, or if a patron feels unwell. The handling fee of $6/transaction is non-refundable.
They reserve the right to require all patrons, staff, and volunteers to wear cloth or medical masks while indoors on DCA premises, and/or to follow other health recommendations from the state or county.
To reduce hand-to-hand contact, all tickets will be printed and mailed in 2020. The 2020 playbill will be a digital document, and (new this year) ads will also be broadcast in our pre-show video. All 2020 shows will be performed without intermission and limited to 90 minutes to reduce restroom traffic.
Sales for 2020 events rescheduled for summer/fall 2021 will also begin June 9.
