With their first production since the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic nearly ready to hit the stage of the Dakota Theater, the Lewis and Clark Theater Company is taking steps to insure that patrons attending a performance of *M*A*S*H* feel safe while being a part of the audience.
President Michael Schumacher says the combination of cancelling shows and fundraisers while not being able to sell season memberships has meant a hit to their bottom line in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Schumacher says between the costs of royalties, costumes and utilities, getting a theatrical production on-stage is an expensive proposition.
Schumacher says as safety measures, precautions are being taken to prevent the possible transmission of the coronavirus at a performance.
Performances of The Lewis and Clark Theater Company’s production of *M*A*S*H* are set for August 6th through the 9th and the 13th through the 16th with evening shows beginning at 730 PM and Sunday matinees set for 2 PM at the Dakota Theater in Yankton’s Meridian District.
