Freeman Stage planning to bring local and regional acts to Selbyville this summer

Freeman Stage
The Freeman Stage in Selbyville hopes to have a summer concert series - but it will look a little different.

The Freeman Stage in Selbyville is preparing to offer live performances again as the state starts to reopen from the COVID-19 shutdown.



The venue put its summer concert season on hold back in March when the coronavirus pandemic hit.

But now, the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation’s executive director Patti Grimes says it is booking acts, “Our Board of Directors have met and approved a path forward that meets the Governor’s requirements for the 6’ social distancing and the CDC guidelines. So we are going to have a small, intimate season.”

Grimes says they hope that season will start in mid-July.

Grimes says the focus is on bringing in local and regional acts, with a few national acts coming in - if possible.


She notes ticket sales will be different this year, “We are going to offer what we call a “pod,” which is a group of four people. So if you think about the New World Order where we talk about household units - and a household unit could be folks that you have been staying at home with or it could be friends and family that you’re  comfortable being with.”

Grimes adds one person will buy a “pod” and that one ticket will allow four people to enter Freeman Stage together to view a show.

Freeman Stage expects to start announcing dates later this week.
