COVID Safety Policy

2022 Essential Play Festival COVID POLICY

for public performances

Your health and safety is our top priority. Here’s what to expect when you come to the Festival:

  • Due to Georgia’s “medium risk” label with regard to COVID-19, for the duration of the 2022 Festival we will require all audience members to be properly masked at all times. Concessions will be available for purchase in the lobby but will not be allowed in the theater.
  • Seating is still general admission but has been reduced to allow for distancing between parties.
  • We are continuing the contactless practices began in 2021:
    • We strongly encourage purchasing your tickets in advance.
    • You will receive a link to the program in your reminder email the day before the show, which you can print out or view on your phone.
    • QR codes will also be posted at the box office, with limited print copies available upon request.
    • We are not distributing any physical tickets.

In addition:

  • Air filtration and circulation has been increased throughout the building, as has cleaning of high-touch, high-traffic areas.
  • An Essential Theatre COVID Compliance Officer will be present at every performance to provide additional support.

We are committed to providing the safest and most enjoyable experience possible. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support in this. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

-Peter, Jennifer, Carter and the whole 2022 Essential Theatre Festival family!
