Things to Know Before You Visit

  • While there is no longer a city mandate to wear masks, we strongly encourage all visitors to wear a mask to protect those who are too young or are not eligible to be vaccinated.
  • All Center staff will continue to wear masks – excluding performers during performances.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in abundance at the Center.
  • Please change your visit to another day if you’re not feeling well.
  • We will continue to monitor public health directives around COVID and modify our response accordingly.
  • For those who wish to attend the Center and are not comfortable unless masks are required, we have set aside November 28th as a Mask-Up Day at the Center. On that day, everyone visiting the Center will be required to wear a mask.
