A.D. Players at The George and Apache SafeSpace Solutions team up to keep theater patrons safe

“The advanced technical solutions Apache SafeSpace Solutions provided have not only made our theater safer for our actors, artists, and audience, but have given us incredible peace of mind.”

Last month, for the first time since the global pandemic impacted citizens and businesses across the Houston area, A.D. Players at The George Theater opened their doors to patrons for a one-man offering from their educational touring department, “Apollo: to the Moon”, and an extended run of the concert, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered: John-Mark McGaha sings Stevie Wonder.” In addition to rigorous health and safety protocols, the theater worked with Apache SafeSpace Solutions to install custom UV-C treatment technology into their facility to help keep patrons safe. The technology has been integrated in educational, industrial, and commercial facilities all across the country, and is helping people safely get back to work and life.

“We are doing everything we can to keep our guests safe while still providing the magic of live entertainment. To our knowledge, we’re one of the first theaters in the country to reopen using this technology,” said Jake Speck, Executive Director of A.D. Players at The George. “The advanced technical solutions Apache SafeSpace Solutions provided have not only made our theater safer for our actors, artists, and audience, but have given us incredible peace of mind.”

The Apache SafeSpace Solutions team worked closely with the theater to design, fabricate, and install hospital-grade UV-C lights in the building’s HVAC system to scrub the building’s airflow of microbial threats like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. UV-C light has been proven to penetrate cell walls, breaking down the nucleus of the cell to destroy it, and businesses all over the country are utilizing it to treat and decontaminate surfaces and the air.

“The theater does so much for people’s mental and emotional health, especially during these strange and uncertain times. Our main goal is to get people back to life again, and the performing arts are a vital part of that,” said Mike Knigin, CEO of Apache Industrial Services. “We’re proud to support A.D. Players and help them create the safest environment possible for their guests.”

Since reopening, A.D. Players at The George has been putting on a variety of shows at the theater with limited audiences and strict health and safety protocols. Even with these extensive precautions in place, there is an understanding that some may not feel comfortable returning to the theater yet, so A.D. Players is offering a number of outdoor performances and livestreams that guests can enjoy from the comfort of their home. Further information can be found at http://www.adplayers.org.
