NEW Theatre Guidelines

THE COW PATTI THEATRE COMPANY IS MOOOO-VING FORWARD IN OPENING OUR THEATRE GATES FOR THEIR 25TH SEASON OF PROFESSIONAL DINNER THEATRE! 

COVID 19 GUIDELINES 

We are excited to welcome you all back for our 25th Season on November 14, 2020.  Due to continued restrictions from the Alberta Government we have implemented changes to ensure our productions can all be presented within Alberta Health Service (AHS) Guidelines and the Canadian Actors Equity Association Guidelines while still maintaining our commitment to deliver an exceptional dinner theatre experience. Below you will find a summary of how we plan to keep you safe in our Theatre. 

SOCIAL DISTANCING  

All areas of the Theatre have been addressed to allow for appropriate social distancing. This includes the lineup area, lobby, and washrooms. We have also added directional plop drops within the theatre to manage the flow of guests and avoid any congestion. The new Table Floor Plan will keep the 2-meter social distance needed between actors and patrons which will allow us an 80-person maximum with a cap of 6 people per table. We will be requiring that our patrons wear masks entering and leaving the theatre and moving in the space such as going to the bathroom. Because of our limited seating space we are encouraging people, that will be attending, to invite friends and family in their Cohorts to join them for an afternoon or evening with Cow Patti to best fill the tables to use the space as proficient as possible. As well, after each show the entire space at The Lacombe Golf and Country Club will be sanitized and cleaned. 

SHARING POLICY 

We will not be applying our usual sharing policy while social distancing is in effect. Once you purchase tickets, the table is yours and no other party will be seated with you. You are welcome to purchase any extra seats available at your table for members of your family or cohort to join you. Being we ultimately can only seat 80 people – we encourage our patrons to invite family members or friends in their cohorts to join them at Cow Patti so we can best utilize our limited seating capacity. If you would like to book in your Christmas Party we can accommodate up to 80 persons keeping in mind that we still have to separate people in groups of 6 maximum  If you have a smaller group we will ensure to socially distance your party’s cohort from other patrons. 

MEAL SERVICE 

Given the number of guests in our theatre and the setup of our buffet line, we cannot effectively move our patrons through the buffet line in a safe and socially distant manner. Therefore, the Chef at the Lacombe Golf and Country Club and Cow Patti have created some new ways to “feed” our guests. They are simplified and create a way to safely serve our customers. Most importantly though, they will have our unique Cow Patti flavor: Lunenburger Night Homemade Burger with Fries and Slaw, Happi Appi Night : Choice of Wings, Ribs or Cauliflower Bites, Seniors Socially Distance Socials: Sandwiches, Wraps, Squares and Chocolate Covered Strawberries , Flapjack Sundays: Pancakes, Bacon, Eggs and Fruit and our Socially Conscious Benefits which will be the Happi Appi or Social Menu. We are also offering up some Cabaret Shows that have no food but will have a bar service for patrons to enjoy the show with a refreshment 

SANITIZATIONMASKS AND TABLE FLOOR PLAN 

We have adjusted our seating capacity and table layout to allow for two meters between all tables Hand sanitizing stations have been added throughout the Theatre and all surfaces are disinfected regularly. Our Servers and Bussers will all be required to wear a face mask and gloves, which will also be changed regularly. This means that masks will be required to enter the Theatre and when moving about to use the washroom, but you are free to remove the mask when you are seated at your table. You may bring your own mask from home or we will have disposable masks available for purchase. 

WHEN WILL TICKETS GO ON SALE? 

Tickets for the first production of the season LUNENBURG by Norm Foster go on sale September 9th 2020. The remaining productions of our 25th Season will be on sale in December. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list for first call backs, please email us at [email protected]
