COVID-19: Affected Events and Venue Guidelines
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the Reilly Arts Center has closely followed all updates from the CDC, the Governor’s office, and our local health officials. The health of our community, patrons, staff, and local and national artists, remained and remains our top priority. After consulting with our event partners and following recommendations from Governor DeSantis’ office, several events were affected. Please see the list of events and performances that were cancelled or postponed in the tab to the left.
In light of the recent State regulations and the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Florida, we are requiring that all guests wear masks/ face covering at all times when not seated during the event. This includes entering and exiting the building, visiting restrooms and concessions, and moving throughout the building. The Reilly Arts Center is following all CDC guidelines with our sanitation measures and seating. When in the Reilly patrons must follow the CDC guidelines and the Governor’s orders by keeping 6ft a part from one another. There is no congregating allowed. Patrons and staff must keep our distance whether in the Lobby, Hallways or House.
Reilly Arts Center business hours:
The Reilly Arts Center box office was closed from March 2020 until April 2021, we have now reopened to normal box office hours T-F, 10 AM-2 PM. You can always Email the Reilly Arts Center box office at email@example.com or call 352-351-1606 and leave a message with your contact information and someone will return your call.
Please refer to Reillyartscenter.com and our Facebook Page for real-time updates and instructions on what to do if your event has been cancelled or postponed. As you know, things are changing at a quick pace and this is the most efficient way to receive updates on the status of the Reilly.
Thank you for understanding – we look forward to seeing you again soon! Please see the message below from Reilly Arts Center board member, RJ Jenkins!
- We can’t believe how much has changed in such a short time, and we are doing our very best to pivot, adapt, and stay positive. We know guests have paid for a performance, and we are fully prepared to refund the cost of tickets, but I encourage guests to help lift us up by donating the value of their ticket to the Reilly Arts Center. It’s hard to express how much donations mean to our organization during this time. Even though a show is cancelled, we are trying our best to take care of our musicians, our artists, our vendors, and our staff who rely on the income from these events. So yes, we are happy to refund tickets, and yes, we are happy to exchange tickets for a future performance, but we encourage you to consider donating the value of your ticket to help us weather this storm. Patron support means more than you know.
RJ Jenkins, Board Member
We want to thank everyone who has supported the Reilly Arts Center during this critical time. Your support, through various forms including digital series contributions and the decision to convert the value from your cancelled concert ticket back to the Reilly as a donation, is truly appreciated.
