We wish to reassure you that prior to each performance our team has cleaned and sanitized public spaces throughout the venue. The HVAC system in Orr has been evaluated to ensure fresh air is introduced and the percent of outdoor air settings is adjusted to maximize the amount of fresh air movement throughout the building based on exterior conditions. High efficiency filters are utilized with frequent filter changes.

Enjoy the evening and be kind and patient with our staff, volunteer ushers and fellow patrons.

We cannot wait to once again gather with you as a community for a lovely evening in Orr Auditorium to enjoy one of life’s greatest cultural gifts—the LIVE performing arts!
