Distancing guidelines may affect the grand re-opening of the Alberta Bair Theater in downtown Billings in the fall.

Executive Director Jan Dietrick told Q2 Thursday the Alberta Bair Theater board of directors is still considering the options and hopes to reach a decision by the end of next week.

The theater had planned to showcase its new $13.6 million remodeling at a special black tie event Sept. 20, featuring Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer Kristen Chenoweth.

Tickets for the event were to go on sale in early July.

Dietrich did say the remodeling project is on schedule to be completed by the end of June.
