If you’re hesitant about hosting a live indoor show at your venue, please consider the following.
Those of us in the entertainment industry live for that “special night” when the audience leaves the theatre smiling and with love in their hearts. We experienced a night just like that at the Gibson Centre in Alliston Ontario on September 23, 2021. It was a "first since Covid" for both of us.
Whiskey Jack’s collaboration with Jennifer Fortin and the Gibson Centre was a template for indoor live music moving forward. Good planning and experienced execution were the necessary ingredients. Judging by the attendance and the feedback, the audience agrees with us.
One of our fans, Nicholas, wrote: “I decided to go last minute and the show blew me away. I was not sure what I was expecting but it blew my expectations out of the water. I can’t wait to do it again”.
Executive Director Jennifer Fortin wrote: “EVERYONE that I spoke to was thrilled with the performance and said how good it made them feel. I will share our success with anyone who will listen.”
Details: The audience bought tickets online where the protocols were clearly stated. Each group, regardless of the size, had their chairs (and tables in some cases) set up before they arrived. All who entered the theatre provided proof (soon with a passport) that they were double vaccinated. Masks were worn at all times by everyone, except when seated, spaced appropriately, and on the stage, also spaced appropriately.
If you like, Jennifer and I are both available to share our experiences, both from the presenter’s perspective, and the entertainer’s.
