Things to Know Before Your Visit

Enhanced Cleaning Measures

  • All of our venues are cleaned thoroughly before and after performances, with enhanced sanitation procedures.
  • The Plaza Live venue has been outfitted with 10 new air filtration systems using state-of-the-art UV sanitization to ensure the health and safety of our audiences. Bathrooms have been updated with touchless appliances and new equipment can be found around the lobby such as hand sanitizing stations, sneeze guard protection for box office and bar staff, and new barricades for outdoor performances. These new safety features were provided by federal funding through the CARES Act distributed through Orange County and United Arts of Central Florida.

Social Distancing

  • We ask that all in attendance maintain a social distance from other patrons when possible while in lines and while mobile.
