For the first time since the pandemic, the Penguin Rep Theatre in Stony Point will bring performances back to the stage.
For the last year and a half, the theater has been hosting shows outside on its property because of COVID-19.
On Aug. 8, the shows will go on from inside for the very first time, kicking off with a Tony Bennett tribute concert.
"A place where we gather, move people to laughter, to tears, stir the gray matter. We've missed it. I think everyone has missed it," said Joe Brancato, founding artistic director.
"We're excited to see a lot of our patrons and welcome artists back on stage. It's been a very lonely time for everyone," said executive director Andrew Horn.
All guests must be masked and show proof of vaccination.
"We're able to sell the full house, and hopefully everyone will be able to sit shoulder to shoulder and feel comfortable because everyone will be vaccinated," Horn said.
Thanks to an anonymous donor, there is a free concert next weekend.
