The Orpheum Theatre Group said a mini-golf course consisting of nine Broadway-themed putting greens has taken over the empty historic stage.

The course will be open varying hours weekly Thursdays through Sundays during the fall of 2020.

This will be the first public event the Orpheum has hosted since March 14.

“This may well be the wackiest idea I have ever had in my years in the theater business. But with our stage sitting empty for the time being, we had to get creative,” said Brett Batterson, president & CEO.

“The support of our patrons during this time has been vital. However, we still need help to ensure that the Orpheum survives this pandemic. Mini-golf on the Orpheum stage is an incredibly fun way to support us at this time.”

Golf reservations are $10 a person with a limit of four people per party. Capacity is limited to 36 people per 90-minute slot. Play is unlimited in each time slot.
