Dear Friends,

On March 5, the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department stated that the Santa Barbara area remains at low risk of transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19), and they do not recommend closure of schools, businesses, or any events at this time. All ticket sales are final unless otherwise stated.

Please know that the Lobero Theatre Foundation staff are taking the precautionary steps to ensure the health and well-being of our patrons and performers:

  • Disinfecting and sanitizing all door handles (inside and outside), tables, and hand railings throughout the building immediately following each show.
  • Hand sanitizers will be placed in common areas including front bathrooms, artist green room, and lobby.
  • Signage is in place to remind patrons to wash hands in all restrooms. We will diligently ensure that hand soap is fully stocked in all dispensers.

At present, the Lobero Theatre will move forward with all scheduled events. We are diligently following public health recommendations from the County of Santa Barbara Public Health Department and are monitoring the situation closely. If anything should change, we will be sure to alert you as soon as possible.

Please contact the box office at 805.963.0761 if you have any questions. We hope that this news puts your mind at ease, and you can enjoy a few hours enjoying live entertainment at this historic venue.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is characterized by mild symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Illness can be more severe for some people and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties. We encourage you to stay home and contact a medical professional if you are experiencing symptoms (e.g., coughing, fever, or shortness of breath).
