SUMMER NIGHTS AT THE EMBASSY OPENS TO THE PUBLIC WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24

Help the Embassy Support Local Talent and Business

Single tickets for the fifth season of Summer Nights at the Embassy are on sale to the general public. The entertainment series opens to the general public starting this Wednesday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. from June 24 through September 9. Primary sponsors include Barnes & Thornburg, LLP, First Federal Bank, Fort Financial Credit Union and Chuck & Lisa Surack and Sweetwater. Mad Anthony is the microbrew sponsor.

The 2020 Summer Nights at the Embassy series focuses on musical performances by local artists. Shigs In Pit is the food vendor for the entire series. A cash bar is available.

Based on state guidelines, the start of the season was delayed until June. The first three events were live streamed only and all future shows will be live streamed for free from 8 to 9 p.m. Live streaming access and the FULL season lineup can be found here: http://fwembassytheatre.org/2020-summer-nights/.

All entertainment will be set up in the Yergens Rogers Foundation Ballroom with access to the Parkview Health Rooftop Patio where patrons can relax and enjoy the Fort Wayne skyline and warm weather. The Embassy will follow local guidelines to offer a fun and interactive experience with protocols in place to reduce exposure to COVID-19. The theater’s COVID-19 Pandemic Preparedness Patron Response Plan is included as a separate attachment. Patrons can expect one-way traffic patterns throughout the facility as well as social distancing, use of our stairs (so that staff can control elevator traffic for patrons with accessibility or mobility needs) and thorough cleaning protocols. Staff has created a video called “Path of the Patron” so that attendees can familiarize themselves with the traffic pattern of the event. View here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2V3UVfzVrFY&feature=youtu.be.

Due to social distancing, the Embassy is capping capacity at 45 patrons in the facility at a given time. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee access to each event.

While the Embassy works hard to reduce exposure through vigorous cleaning protocols and staff training, the public is assuming the inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19. The Embassy encourages patrons to do the following to help protect all in attendance:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • Utilize hand sanitizer.

EMBASSY THEATRE COVID-19 STATEMENT

We have been monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 very closely and are following Allen County Health Department guidelines to take appropriate precautions for our staff, patrons and partners as well as the artists and talent who use our venue. We have been emphasizing stringent sanitation and cleanliness policies as well as reminding people of the 6-foot social distancing recommendation. The Embassy is also monitoring peer venues to make sure we are following best practices within our industry during these uncertain times.

We are encouraging everyone to follow basic health practices: cover their mouth when they cough and sneeze; wash their hands with soap for 20 seconds or use alcohol-based sanitizer; avoid touching their faces; and as always, if anyone isn’t feeling well or is immunocompromised, the responsible thing to do is to stay home.

Published March 12, 2020, the Indiana State Department of Health “strongly recommends…for the next 30 days non-essential gatherings of 250 people or more should be postponed or canceled.”

As a result the Embassy is working as quickly as possible and with its partners and renters to postpone, reschedule and manage upcoming events within this time period. We will notify ticket holders of any event change as soon as we have that information.

The situation is constantly evolving. For all updates, the Embassy will post information concerning our events or venue to this page: fwembassytheatre.org/coronavirus, Facebook and/or Instagram.

The Embassy thanks you for your continued support of our non-profit organization during this crisis and looks forward to offering this region a rich array of arts, cultural and entertainment experiences.
