COVID-19 Update

Updated: March 14, 2022 | 12:00 PM EST


Effective March 15, 2022, masks are welcome but no longer required and proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test result is no longer required for patrons attending events and performances on campus

Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, Civic Theatre and The Center for the Performing Arts reserve the right to implement any and all restrictions to mitigate the spread of disease with appropriate notice.

Students –

Effective March 15, 2022, Civic Theatre will be moving to vaccinations recommended and masks welcome but not required for all Civic students. This includes all spring and summer classes and camps. While Civic believes that all students being fully vaccinated and boosted when eligible remains the best way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are no longer requiring it. This policy adjustment DOES NOT include members of Jr. Civic Company or any Civic productions (mainstage or educational). All Staff and Instructors will continue to be required to be fully vaccinated and boosted (when eligible) against COVID-19.


Jr. Civic Company –

Effective March 15, 2022, we will be moving to vaccinations required and masks welcome but not required for all Jr. Civic Company members. Due to the likelihood of various performance and travel opportunities, we believe that the requirement of full vaccination and boosters (when eligible) for all Jr. Civic Company members is the best way to protect all members and the program. Medical or religious exemptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis but are not guaranteed. The broader health policy for Civic staff, performers, crew & musicians, and contractors remains as follows-

It is the policy of Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre that all company members, contractors with direct interaction, and staff at Civic will receive full COVID-19 vaccination, any necessary boosters (assuming eligibility), and any other vaccination deemed to prevent disease that would pose a significant risk to ongoing operations or the health of our constituents.
