Theatres across the Washington, DC-area have united to provide the highest level of public safety by requiring proof of vaccination.

The Commitment

Theatres across the greater Washington, DC-area have united to provide the highest level of public safety for their audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers by requiring that their audiences provide proof of vaccination to attend all live public performances at their indoor venues.

These theatres are committed to the safety of all who work, perform, and visit their venues and invite audiences to join in the effort to slow the spread of Covid-19. In addition to audiences, these theatres have mandated Covid-19 vaccinations for performers and theatre staff.

The organizations joining in this effort are listed below. Organizations will update their websites as appropriate. Please use the links to the theatres’ websites for the most up-to-date information. 

Attending A Show

Patrons must be able to show proof that they are fully vaccinated (refer to specific theatres’ policies for requirements) at the time of their entry into the theatres. Masks will also be required for audiences inside the theatre, except while eating or drinking in designated locations. The policies will continue through August 31, 2022.

Patrons may display proof of vaccination with a physical copy of their vaccination card with their ID, and theatres may extend other options to provide proof of vaccination as detailed on their websites.


Theatres will offer exemptions for those who are not vaccinated, such as children who are recently or not yet eligible, people with certain medical conditions preventing vaccination, or those with closely held religious beliefs. Before the performance starts, these patrons must provide proof of a timely negative Covid-19 test—as defined by each venue.
