As we gear up for a return to live theatre this fall, we once again are turning to the CDC and local health officials for guidance. With the alarming rise in new COVID variants we want to take extra steps to ensure that those who attend shows at the Bartell, as well as those performing and working there, are as safe as possible.
The Bartell Theatre Foundation will therefore require proof of vaccination against the COVID-19 virus for all audience members coming into the theatre. In addition, the Bartell will also require proof of vaccination for all cast members, crews, volunteers, and staff working in the theatre.
We will offer exemptions for those unable to be vaccinated, such as children under 12 and people with certain medical conditions preventing vaccination. We ask, if possible, these patrons provide proof of a timely negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours before performance start time.
