By Lindsay Doty
The Royal Theater in Danville will be hosting its first music stage show since the COVID-19 quarantine with bluesy singer and songwriter Jennie DeVoe. The nationally touring artist from Indianapolis has been a fan favorite for live shows at the historic Danville venue for many years.
She will perform Friday, July 31 at 8 p.m. to a limited audience of 100 guests to keep in line with social distancing. The show will be streamed live for those who are hesitant to come out.
“We have always loved having Jennie on stage and it feels great we are helping each other out at this time,” said Tracie Shearer with the Royal.
Tickets are $20 and available at https://ticketing.us.veezi.com/sessions/?siteToken=npb3dsb837c95e4x34gavmdkww
An online tip jar will be available for viewers to support the band and the Royal. The show will also include a beer garden.
The Royal reopened June 16 with some safety precautions. The seating is checkerboard-style spacing for social distancing, so guests need to allow three seats to each side and one to the front and back. The staff wears masks and surfaces are sanitized between shows.
“We have worked hard to implement cleaning and serving procedures to keep everyone safe,” said Shearer.
With Hollywood movies at a standstill, the vintage theater has been showing classics, including Rocky and the 1993 Jurassic Park showing this weekend (July 17).All movies are $3.
Family-friendly movies also play each Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and afternoon for free.
