*Health & Safety Protocols
: The health of our patrons and staff continue to be a top priority. We will only hold performances and donor events if it is safe to do so. We will follow all of the recommended health guidelines and requirements set forth by the Oregon Health Authority — including mask requirements, vaccination recommendations, social distancing, postponements, etc. — however they may shift in the season ahead. In addition, our building is fortunate to have a robust HVAC system that is capable of fully exchanging the air every 10-12 minutes, and we have excellent cleaning practices in place. 

As protocols shift, we will communicate all details with ticket holders in advance of each performance. We understand each person has different needs, and will provide ultimate flexibility as we welcome people back to the theater.
