Selected Mask and Vaccination Required Performances

In an effort to provide those who would feel more comfortable in a fully masked environment with an opportunity to attend our productions, we have designated selected upcoming performances of The Color Purple as "Mask and Vaccination Required": Saturday, April 2 at 3:00pm; Friday, April 8 at 8:00pm; Wednesday, April 13 at 8:00pm; and Saturday, April 16 at 3:00pm and 8:00pm.

During these performances, masks and vaccines will be required for all patrons and staff in our lobbies and theatres unless actively eating/drinking. No food or beverages will be allowed in the theatres. Patrons will still undergo the standard temp check at the door but also must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the theatre with their valid ticket. “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

Exceptions are being made for children under 12 and people with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. These guests must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time.

ASL/Audio Describe Night

Audio Description and American Sign Language Interpretation are available for each production. ASL/Audio Describe Night is Thursday, March 24 for The Color Purple.
