Saturday shows feature two sets from 2-3 p.m. and 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesday performances are from 7-9 p.m., with a break in between.

A maximum of 50 people can be accommodated in the audience area of the park at any time. Social distancing and contact tracing regulations will be in effect.

And it’s all pending any possible changes made by Dr. Bonnie Henry, as she keeps a close eye on the COVID-19 cases resulting from Phase 3 reopenings.
