LATEST COVID POLICY April 27, 2022
Masks are now highly recommended but not required. We continue to require proof of vaccination for our patrons and staff. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
6th Street Playhouse’s COVID-19 safety protocols have been keeping hundreds of patrons safe every week. We’d like to give you the most up-to-date information on how to prepare for a night at the theater. The rules have recently shifted, but our basic policy remains the same.
It comes down to three easy steps:
Step 1: Be vaccinated. And by vaccinated, we mean your final dose has had at least 14 days to get antibodies flowing. Aside from that, it’s dealer’s choice among this phenomenal list of eight vaccines approved by the WHO (for international guests, two doses of any “mix and match” combination of vaccines is acceptable). This now applies to anyone 12 and up, so if you’re planning to surprise your kids, grandkids, nieces, or nephews with tickets to one of our productions or classes, make sure they will be fully vaccinated by showtime or first class. Those under the age of 12 or those with underlying medical conditions that prohibit them from receiving the Covid-19 vaccine can provide proof of a negative covid test (rapid test OR PCR) valid within 72 hours of the performance.
Step 2: Bring proof that you were vaccinated to the theater, including a government-issued photo ID—if you’re ages 12-18, a school ID is just fine.
Step 3: Masks are now highly recommended but not required. We continue to require proof of vaccination for our patrons and staff. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
What counts as “proof” of vaccination?
Here are your three best options:
- A physical vaccination card
- A photo of a physical vaccination card
- A digital vaccine app (e.g. MyVaccineRecord, https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov)
What if you can’t get vaccinated?
There are two scenarios in which you can enter one of our theaters unvaccinated:
- If you have a medical condition that precludes it.
- If you have a “sincerely held” religious belief that precludes it.
In both scenarios, instead of providing proof of vaccination, you can either:
- Show official proof of anegative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance.
- Show official proof of a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance.
What about those newly vaccine-eligible 5-11-year-olds?
We are currently highly recommending proof of vaccination for this age group, but it is not a requirement for participation or attendance in our programs or performances.
These are the rules that will apply through April 30, 2022, so keep your eyes peeled for updates later this year. However, if you’ve already scheduled a night out at the theater, grab your cell phone, your driver’s license, and a cozy-yet-fashionable mask (optional), and you’re as ready for a night of great theater as you’ve ever been.
Guests may present proof of vaccination with an original document, or a photo (printed or digital) of the document, bearing your name, plus matching ID. Other official proofs are also welcome. For example, California residents may access their vaccination record digitally via http://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/.
In addition to proof of vaccination, all guests 18 years or older must also present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. Guests under 18 may also use a school photo ID. Guests under 12 must be accompanied by an adult who meets the above requirements.
Guests who do not comply with these protocols will be denied entry or asked to leave the theater.
Patrons who have previously purchased tickets and are unable to comply with these policies will be offered a refund or credit to their account.
