Saudi entertainment authority sets regulations for female performers in family shows

RIYADH: The General Entertainment Authority (GEA) introduced a ban on holding magic shows in the Kingdom, and stipulated that organizers of entertainment activities should provide insurance policies for acrobatic and dangerous shows.

Al-Watan newspaper on November 26 said that the GEA noted that women would not be allowed to take part in live shows, even if the shows are meant for families, without written approval from the authority. However, the GEA will allow women to take part in live shows which are held only for women.

The GEA stressed that any violations of the restrictions, conditions or commitments would give the authority the right to take necessary measures and refer offenders to the relevant legal entities.
