"We weren't going to come at first," said Lucy Colangelo Dych of Delanco, NJ.
Before curtain call, the theatre had been sanitized. Masks are mandatory inside.
With a capacity of 1,000 seats, more than half were filled Tuesday night.
"It shows me we have a healthy appetite for coming back to the theatre," said Bernard Havard, president and producing artistic director of the Walnut Street Theatre. "I think we have 71% of our seats pre-sold, which is wonderful."
"I haven't been to a live performance play in a while, so just the atmosphere and being here is amazing in itself," Sprague added.
