GMA Announces New Expanded Opening Plan

Per Governor Abbott’s Executive Order allowing Texas businesses to open up to 100% and no longer mandating face masks, the GMA has come up with a plan designed to provide space for those that want to be Socially Distanced as well as space for those that don’t.  As is always, the safety and comfort of our patrons, performers, and staff is of the utmost importance, so we are moving forward with the following phased plan: March 2021 – The GMA will remain at our current 25% Capacity with the entire theater set up for Social Distancing.  Properly worn face coverings (covering both the nose and mouth) are strongly encouraged, especially when moving about the theater.  The actual option to request face coverings will be left to the entity renting the venue for a performance. April 2021 – The GMA will open up to 50% Capacity.  The middle section of the theater will be open with no seating restrictions and the two side sections will remain set up for Social Distancing.  Properly worn face coverings (covering both the nose and mouth) are strongly encouraged, especially when moving about the theater.  The actual option to request face coverings will be left to the entity renting the venue for a performance. May 2021 – The GMA will open up to 75% Capacity.  Both the middle section and one of our two side sections will be open with no seating restrictions with one side section remaining set up for Social Distancing.  Properly worn face coverings (covering both the nose and mouth) are strongly encouraged, especially when moving about the theater.  The actual option to request face coverings will be left to the entity renting the venue for a performance. June 2021 & Beyond – The GMA will be open up to 100% Capacity with no seating restrictions.  Should an entity renting the venue want to create a Socially Distanced section for their patrons, we will work with them to do so.  Properly worn face coverings (covering both the nose and mouth) are strongly encouraged, especially when moving about the theater.  The actual option to request face coverings will be left to the entity renting the venue for a performance. We will continue to disinfect the theater and frequently touched surfaces before, during, and after all performances.  We look forward to welcoming back all of our patrons and we will be announcing soon a fantastic line up of entertainment coming your way at the GMA!
