Ron Legler of the Hippodrome said they are taking all precautions. “Sanitary stations, we will ask everyone to wear a mask,” said Legler. Legler said their 600 ushers will receive plenty of training by the time it opens in November. He said the hippodrome is also planning to bring some smaller shows to town, and they have a new digital tool. “We made an app for the hippodrome, a wallet for your tickets, and everything is safe. You don’t. If you need to touch something, you can order a drink through the app and have it waiting for you when you get there “said Legler. At Power Plant Live, they plan to hold the first Hot Country Night on June 1st, but according to Sal Digiorgio, that’s not all. “On May 20th, we are proud that TBR, one of our true club venues, will open socially distant protocols that will be followed,” said Digiorgio.

People really want to get out and enjoy the art from theater to music. Baltimore Center Stage, like many other venues, is preparing to reopen its doors.

Baltimore Center Stage is currently filming its pieces and showing them virtually. The actors and actresses are on the premises. The venue hopes guests can come in after Labor Day.

“We have a COVID team working hard to make sure people feel safe the moment they walk in the door – that’s the most important thing to us,” said Charisse Nichols of Baltimore Center Stage.

A camp will be held in the theater in mid-June.

“We will have nearly 32 children who come every day for four weeks,” said Nichols.

The hippodrome is still a few months away from its fall return. Still, people have a lot of time to plan and prepare.

Ron Legler of the Hippodrome said they are taking all precautions.

“Sanitary stations, we will ask everyone to wear a mask,” said Legler.

Legler said their 600 ushers will have plenty of training by the time it opens in November. He said the hippodrome was planning to bring some smaller shows to town too, and they had a new digital tool.

“We created an app for the hippodrome, a wallet for your tickets, and everything is safe. You don’t have to touch anything, you can order a drink from the app and have it waiting for you when you get there,” Legler said.

Down at Power Plant Live, they’re planning to hold the first Hot Country Night on June 1st, but according to Sal Digiorgio, that’s not all.

“On May 20th, we are proud that TBR, one of our true club venues, will open socially distant protocols that will be followed,” said Digiorgio.
