As we return to theaters and live events, the well-being of our patrons, artists, staff members and community is paramount. Protocols for attending in-person events are developed in conjunction with evolving state, and local health guidelines. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as these change frequently as Covid conditions evolve.

Proof of full vaccination or, a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the shows you are attending, is required. “Full vaccination” means a final COVID-19 vaccine dose was administered at least 14 days prior to the event.

Masks are required in indoor spaces at all times. Patrons must provide their own face coverings that fully cover both nose and mouth. Bandanas, gaiters and masks with external valves are not permitted.
