The Shell Theatre has reopened its doors, having been closed since March 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“When the pandemic was first in the area we had to cancel some shows, of course, we tried to postpone as many shows as possible, but it also involved us cancelling some of our bookings as well,” explained Josh Gennings, Shell Theatre Supervisor, in a previous interview with the Record.
“We’re doing our best to follow AHS guidelines and task force instructions from the City of Fort Saskatchewan to ensure we’re offering a safe environment for our patrons, clients, and staff,” Gennings continued.
The first act to hit the stage since the reopening was the Yuk Yuk’s On Tour, a comedy act featuring Edmonton comedians Sean Lecomber, Brent Ayton, and Sterling Scott.
The comedy act will be featured every month in the fall. The next show will be on Friday, October 16 with William Hannigan and Todd Ness.
On Monday, October 19, Juno award-winning artist Chantal Krevizauk will return to the Shell stage.
“An incredible, intimate, once-in-a-lifetime experience you won’t want to miss at the Shell Theatre. Witness up close and personal an order of Canada recipient with no distractions. Just Chantal and a piano; amazing,” the Shell Theatre said in a release.
The theatre has implemented several changes to comply with health and safety protocols. Protocols include staggered entry for ticketholders, mandatory masks, and screening prior to arrival.
