COVID-19 Policies

While inside our facilities, masks will be required for non-vaccinated individuals. Masks are encouraged when in close proximity to others, regardless of vaccination status. If you’re feeling ill, do not come to the performance. Please call our box office and we’ll be more than glad to exchange your tickets.

We’re keeping our audiences safe by requiring masks for non-vaccinated individuals, cleaning all areas between performances, reducing our audience sizes, and socially distancing all patrons.
