2021-22 Safety Protocols – Next Act Theatre

2021-22 Safety Protocols

As Next Act Theatre reopens for our 2021-22 season, we want to make sure our staff, artists and audiences are as safe as possible. The return to live theatre should be a celebration, not a source of worry! We have worked hard to get our space ready for you, and now we need your help: only if we all work together can we maintain a safe environment for live theatre. Please note that we are closely monitoring local conditions and will update our protocols as needed, and inform all patrons of any changes we make.

It’s a team effort to keep Next Act safe this season, and here’s what we’ll be doing together:

  • Fully-vaccinated workforce (artists, staff, volunteers)
  • Fully-vaccinated audience
  • Everyone masked (except actors when onstage)
  • Improved air filtration
  • Increased cleaning and sanitation
  • Limited-capacity seating
  • Contact-free ticketing
  • Virtual options
  • Staying home if sick

What We’re Doing

Fully-Vaccinated Workforce

Everyone working at Next Act Theatre is fully vaccinated (and boosted if eligible)!

Improved Air Filtration

We’ve upgraded our HVAC system for improved air circulation and particle filtration.

Enhanced Sanitation

From increased cleaning of bathrooms and other surfaces to hand sanitation stations, our building is cleaner than ever.

Limited Capacity

All performances will be held at two-thirds capacity.

Contact-Free Ticketing

Admission to our theatre is contact-free with our new scanning system.

Virtual Options

All productions in the 2021-22 season will be available for online viewing as well as in-person.

What You Can Do

Get the Vaccine

Effective April 14, 2022 – Patrons will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination for entry.

Surveys show that 98 percent of our audience is already vaccinated against COVID-19! We encourage you to count yourself among them and get the shot before attending any performances at Next Act.

Mask Up

During the run of THE LAST WHITE MAN, Masks will be required at all times everywhere within the Next Act building.

Effective May 9, 2022, masks will no longer be required at Next Act.

Stay Safe – Protect Others

Feeling sick? Stay home! We’ll gladly work out ticket rescheduling or virtual presentation options with you. Just give us a call.

We’re bringing our “A-game” to health and safety this year. Help us make Next Act Theatre a safe and enjoyable environment to gather for live theatre once more, and together, we can reopen the space to tell stories, explore feelings and encourage discussion. Together.
