A Note on COVID-19

March 12, 2020
Dear F.M. Kirby Center Friends,
 
With recent news surrounding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation, we want to update you with our plans here at the F.M. Kirby Center. We are monitoring the situation closely. We take seriously the health and safety of our patrons, our artists, and our employees.
 
We are increasing the frequency of disinfecting all countertops, door handles, and door pulls. We have increased our efforts to keep all entrances and exits clean. We will continue to clean the venue before and after each performance.
 
Our staff remains vigilant in washing our hands, keeping our work spaces sanitized, and any employee not feeling well will stay home.
 
When you come to the theater, show your tickets or smart phone instead of handing it to a staff member. Be sure to wash your hands. In order to keep our entire audience safe, we’re asking you to help us by staying home if you are not feeling well.
 
We will continue to follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the City of Wilkes-Barre for any updates.
 
We will postpone our Live from the Chandelier Lobby Concert with Mickey Spain due to the Wilkes-Barre City parade postponing.
 
As for now we will keep our doors open and all other performances on as planned. Please join us and enjoy a show at the Kirby Center! We take pride in our work and love the work we do.
 
See you at the theater,
The F.M. Kirby Center Cast and Crew
