Milton Theatre sees historic day of ticket sales ahead of Jan. 22 reopening


MILTON, Del. – The Milton Theatre says it had a historic day of ticket sales on Monday after it announced it would be reopening on January 22.

The theatre first shut down in March and reopened in June at 30 percent capacity. Due to the state’s changing capacity restrictions it was shut down again in December. However, their plans to reopen at 30 percent capacity have been approved by the Delaware Department of Health. Despite worries from theatre officials about how people may react to the reopening, they say they’re encouraged after they sold about 50 tickets within the first hour of opening online sales.

“The first hour was the fastest ticket sale hour in our history so that says a lot. I mean that says a lot. It means people are ready to go back and see live art once again,” says JP Lacap, the marketing director of the Milton Theatre.

This time around, people will only be allowed to take their masks off if they are eating or drinking instead of being allowed to remove them once they’re seated. Additionally, their kid’s theatre program is back to happening in-person.
