Pandemic Policy Updates

Are requirements for audience members changing? 

In March 2022, Washington State and various counties lifted certain requirements regarding COVID-19 precautions. In response, some theatre companies have revised their requirements for audience members in attendance.

Any confirmed changes to policies for audience members are noted below, along with confirmed maintained policies.

The below listings will be updated as new information is received. Because things are subject to change, only companies or venues with current or near-future performances were contacted.

Please note: We try hard to provide updated information, but these listings are not official. In addition, most, but not all, entities accept negative test result from an official test site in lieu of proof of vaccination; time frame varies. You should confirm policies with the individual theatre companies or venues.
