Covid-19 Protocols : The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre

Covid-19 Response Plan

UPDATED: April 26, 2022

We are committed to continue offering the live entertainment and educational experiences you enjoy at the Civic as safely as possible and in a manner designed to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. To that end, please review our updated COVID-19 Response Plan below prior to any visit to the Civic.

MASK POLICY: When coming to enjoy a show, masks will still be required of audience members in our smaller venues, the Carver Studio and Parish Theatres, regardless of vaccination status. For performances in the Civic Auditorium, masks are optional for audience members. For the Academy of Theatre Arts, please contact the Director of Education and Outreach to confirm the policy for classes and camps.

VACCINATION POLICY: There has been no change to our Vaccination Policy. The following policy remains in place: Generally, anyone over the age of 11 participating in our programs and productions are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19. However, for certain programs, we may require vaccinations for those younger than 11, who are eligible. Also, all patrons over the age of 11 must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to join us. Patrons, upon arrival, will be required to show us their original card, a photocopy or digital image of the card, or a secure health wallet app, combined with a photo id. For children ages 12 to 18 who are attending with a parent/legal guardian, no photo id is required.

HEALTH SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE AND TEMPERATURE CHECKS: We will no longer be conducting temperature checks. However, anyone visiting our facilities for any reason must review the health screening questionnaire posted at each entrance to our facilities. If you answer yes to any of the screening questions, or are feeling unwell, we ask that you please not enter the facility and that you call the box office for an exchange or refund. If you are not feeling well, or if you are exhibiting any symptoms associated with COVID-19, we kindly ask that you remain at home.

HAND SANITIZING: Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout our facilities and at the entrances to each venue. In addition, our Academy schedules time for frequent hand washing and sanitizing.

REFUND AND EXCHANGE POLICY: We will offer a flexible refund and exchange policy in the event you are unable to attend due to illness or quarantine.

PROGRAMS AND CONCESSIONS: We will be offering an abbreviated program for each production, with a QR code to download a digital, detailed program. For certain productions, we may offer limited concessions.

Given the ever-changing situation, our policies and protocols are reviewed on an ongoing basis in accordance with the most up-to-date recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with local and national health officials. As a result, they are subject to change without notice. We encourage you to visit our website for our most up to date COVID-19 Response Plan.
