Smith Center announces plan to resume live shows

Updated March 30, 2021 - 7:31 pm

The Smith Center on Tuesday announced a plan to return to live shows for the 2021-2022 season in an email to season ticket holders.

“My heart fills with joy to begin to welcome you back to The Smith Center,” Myron Martin, president and CEO, said in an email to season ticket holders. “Our stages remaining dark this past year has been nothing short of incredibly challenging.”

In anticipation of resuming shows for the 2021-2022 Broadway Las Vegas Series, The Smith Center announced several changes for season ticket renewal Tuesday.

“As we prepare to resume live programming, the health and safety of our audiences, staff and performers remains our highest priority,” Martin said. “That is why we have been actively working with health-care professionals and local and state officials to identify the best sanitation, cleaning and safety practices that minimize risk, with the goal of reopening at full capacity.”

Changes include:

— An opt-out option will not be offered. “We are sure you’ll want to see all of these exciting shows, especially given these are all Smith Center premieres,” Martin said

— In order to expedite the renewals process, The Smith Center will not be processing any additional seat change requests for the 2021-22 season.

— Before ticket purchases, patrons will be asked to agree to attendance guidelines and safety procedures, including wearing a face mask at all times during future visits to The Smith Center.

“Looking ahead, I’d like to personally thank you for your help and patience as we all get used to a new normal in our return to live theater,” Martin said.
