Dear Act II friends and family,

Thank you for your patience during these fast-changing times! We update this page when new information becomes available.    

The new 2021-22 Season has been announced and online subscription renewals are now open! The physical Box Office is also open Mon – Sat, 2PM – 6PM and healthy practices are being observed.

How To Prepare For Your Visit

We’re really excited to be able to welcome you to the Playhouse, and recognize that new procedures can take time to become familiar with. We ask for your patience as we all learn together with the goal of providing as safe and enjoyable an experience as possible.

Policy specifics are below, but we suggest planning for an extra 15 minutes or so upon arrival and have at hand your vaccination or negative test proof, ID, and mask. Our policy may change as we move toward our Mainstage Season in November, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we all manage our safety together as a community.

Audience and Performer COVID-19 Policy

Due to continuing concern regarding COVID-19 variants, Act II Playhouse will require audiences and performers to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test in order to attend indoor performances beginning September 10th. We will also require patrons to be masked at all times during indoor theatre events.  Act II Staff members are fully vaccinated and will also be masked.  

Proof of Vaccination: Audience members and performers must show proof of vaccination along with photo ID at their time of entry into the Playhouse. “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna), or at least 14 days after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson).  Proof of vaccination may be presented as follows along with a valid ID: Electronic Copy, Photocopy, Photo. 


Proof of Negative COVID Test: If unable to be vaccinated, guests must provide proof of a COVID-19 PCR test taken within 36 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 36 hours of the performance start time. No home tests will be accepted.  (This includes accommodations for children under 12, people with a medical condition, or individuals with closely held religious beliefs that prevent vaccination). 

Note: Please talk with your healthcare provider if you have any questions regarding COVID-19 testing.
