Masks are no longer required—but are encouraged—for audiences in our theaters and lobby/courtyard areas for all future productions. Select performances of Mindplay, The First Deep Breath, and The Lonely Few have been designated as “Masks Required” to accommodate patrons who feel more comfortable attending with an audience that is fully masked.

Unacceptable masks include: cloth, neck gaiters, bandanas, and masks with vents. Medical/surgical masks will be provided to patrons if needed. Masks must be worn over the mouth and nose.
