Public safety is CRITICAL but a gathering of less than 50 people is a gathering of less than 50 people. period. theatres should not be punished while other businesses are allowed to reopen.

I’m teaching students on campus. If we can stay save with masks and distanced seating, so can small theatres. Give creative mo day some input on re-opening protocols.

I am signing this petition because entertainment professionals have proven they prioritize safety guidelines and will and should be given the same opportunity other businesses have to start safely reopening.

Our small live theaters are an essential and cherished part of Western New York’s economic and cultural landscape. Unlike some entertainment venues, they have always been responsible partners. Please take into account the valuable input they have to share and allow them to reopen soon and responsibly.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Arts are essential to the health of the human spirit. We, in this community, in the global community, have spent enough time in the shadow of this virus to know what basics are essential to avoid exposure. Please consider an informed, modest, examined opening of theaters & performance art spaces so we can once again begin to thrive in addition to surviving. Thank you.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Art is not cancelled, and it is possible for some small theaters and small performances to operate safely.
