March 17: Imperial will be closing all in-person access
PLEASE CALL BOX OFFICE with questions
UPDATED MARCH 16, 2020
Due to the recent recommendation from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health New Brunswick to aid in the prevention and containment of COVID-19, Imperial Theatre has postponed/cancelled upcoming events until and including March 28, 2020.
Ticket holders will be notified and further information will be shared as is available.
“We have been working with artists and clients to determine the best course of action since the Province’s latest recommendation. At this time we have decided to cancel events up until March 28, 2020. These events will ideally reschedule and we will keep audiences informed about new dates. We will continue to monitor the situation daily and make informed decisions based on information from the Department of Health and the Province. Working proactively to help prevent the spread of the virus is a priority we should all be taking very seriously.
Box office will remain open during regular business hours, however we request the public call whenever possible as opposed to visit in person. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time.”
Angela Campbell, Executive Director – Imperial Theatre
Previous general info:
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves, the team at Imperial Theatre continues to closely monitor developments locally and globally. We are following official guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada and New Brunswick Public Health in order to support the health and wellbeing of our community. For now, the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low for the general population in Canada.
We want to re-assure everyone that the safety of our audiences, artists, employees, and all of our visitors is our priority. At this time, our performance space, offices, and other public spaces remain open. Should the need to postpone or cancel shows or events arise, we will issue a notice on our website and email ticket buyers. Any decision to postpone or cancel shows or events will be made based on verified information and directives issued by the appropriate public health authorities (such as the Public Health Agency of Canada).
In addition to our regular cleaning procedures we have introduced the following measures:
• Our facilities maintenance team is taking extra care to sanitize all public spaces, including doorknobs, handrails and other surfaces;
• Hand sanitizer is available in our spaces—but the best thing to do is wash your hands (sing Happy Birthday for 20 seconds for proper duration);
• We are asking staff, performers and patrons to stay home if they present symptoms;
• Informational signs are displayed in every restroom reminding visitors and patrons of best practices to promote health and prevent the spread of infection.
Imperial Theatre cares deeply about keeping our communities healthy. We need your attention and help to stay as prepared as possible. Additionally:
• If you are experiencing sneezing, coughing, or fever, please stay home;
• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing (or an elbow or shoulder if no tissue is available).
