Health & Safety Come First!

The safety and well-being of our patrons, artists and staff is our top priority. As health and safety guidelines are constantly evolving, we continue to closely monitor the situation and modify our COVID-19 health and safety plan appropriately. The protocols outlined below are subject to change at any time based on levels of COVID-19 in our community, CDC recommendations and/or changes to federal, state or local guidelines.

The COVID-19 protocols for the 2022-23 Season are unknown at this time. We will send the most up-to-date guidelines in an email closer to your performance. Patrons who don't feel safe attending or aren't comfortable with the protocols below will have the option to receive a refund if you notify us prior to the performance.

Thank you in advance for your help to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable theatre experience.

General Guidelines

When tickets are purchased, patrons will be required to confirm that they have reviewed and will follow the Playhouse's health and safety measures and will not attend if feeling ill, showing any symptoms or have had any know contacts related to COVID-19.

Cleaning Protocols

All public spaces will be cleaned nightly and between matinee and evening performances. Cleaning procedures will utilize CDC-approved disinfecting solutions to thoroughly clean door handles, stair railings, seating arm rests, counters, tables, chairs, the elevator and other shared surfaces after every performance.

We are making touchless hand-sanitizer and disinfecting-wipe stations available throughout the building.


Air Flow

The Playhouse has a continuous air-flow system. We have increased the outside air to the maximum percentage that the system can handle. We have upgraded the air filters to MERV13 efficiency filters for all the air-handling units throughout the building. Evaporator coils have been deep cleaned and disinfected.



Beverages and food will be available for purchase. Drinks are permitted in the theatre. Food is not permitted in the theatre. Thank you!
