Dear Patrons and Volunteers,

In accordance with state and local government reopening guidelines, Highlands Lakeside Theatre is open at limited capacity.

As HLT welcomes participants, protocols have been implemented to ensure the health and safety of volunteers, guests and staff. We have made adjustments to the cleaning procedures and continue to conduct training of volunteers. HLT is following the latest guidance from the CDC to include increased sanitation and encouraging new social distancing protocols throughout the entire facility, which is communicated to participants through emails, signage, and review with team leaders.

Signage promoting best practices have been placed throughout the facility. Face coverings and temperature checks for patrons are optional. All present are asked to practice proper personal hygiene in accordance with CDC guidelines including the frequent washing of hands, and are encouraged to use the Hand sanitizer stations located in the lobby. We are upgrading the restrooms to touchless dispensers as those supplies become available. For the foreseeable future, all performances are at 50% capacity with open seating to allow parties to remain together while distancing from others. We are offering a live stream option to watch shows from your location whenever allowed by the licensing agency.

For your peace of mind, we offer 100% Cancellation Policy that allows for tickets to be credited towards another show or event or changed to streaming when available at any time and for any reason up to one hour prior to the start of the show or event. For more information, call 863-382-2525.

We have suspended printing tickets and programs. Patrons now check in at the podium to be checked off the manifest. Digital programs to Blackman Stage Series shows will be available on our website.

Volunteers in congested areas will wear face covers. Masks are available for anyone, patron or volunteer, who needs one.

The response to COVID-19 is ongoing, and we recognize that there may be more adaptations for all of us to make but we are confident that we can manage it for as long as needed to make all of us feel safe and comfortable during visits. Everyone at Highlands Lakeside Theatre is eager to welcome guests back and look forward to seeing you again when you are ready.
