COVID-19 Protocols

GTC reserves the right to put additional safety guidelines in place and to communicate those to patrons prior to each performance.  Performances may be delayed, postponed, or cancelled if necessary.

While not required, Granbury Theatre Company strongly recommends all patrons wear masks or face coverings while attending events at the historic Granbury Opera House. We know that many of our loyal patrons are already vaccinated against COViD-19, but this added protection will help ensure the health and safety of all audience members.

We do understand that not everyone will feel comfortable attending an event here or other venues. Masks or face coverings are optional for patrons, and we strongly encourage everyone to obtain a COVID-19 vaccination prior to coming to a GTC show. For those who have purchased tickets but are not quite ready to attend in person given this change in protocol, the GTC box office will provide those customers with credits for a future event.

GTC staff will continue sanitizing the entire theatre following each performance. We do encourage individuals experiencing symptoms to stay home and receive a credit for a future event.

For our cast and crew, GTC employs a COVID-19 mitigation officer to establish strict protocols during rehearsals and performances. Masks are required for all cast and crew when not on stage in a scene, and regular COVID testing is required for unvaccinated individuals as well as vaccinated individuals experiencing symptoms. Cast or crew may be temporarily replaced in performances as necessary.

SYMPTOMS

From the CDC:

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
