BLUEBARN performers, backstage crew and staff will comply with vaccination requirements to further ensure the safety of our guests and company members.


The BLUEBARN will safely operate at full audience capacity, however, we will be offering the back row of each performance with reduced capacity seating.


BLUEBARN Theatre requires that patrons attending any performance to follow the protocols below. As guidelines are evolving on a frequent basis, so may these policies, so we ask you to please check back prior to attending to confirm current protocols.

Face coverings:  Right now and for as long as is necessary, the CDC recommends face coverings for all individuals in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. All visitors must wear a face mask, worn properly over the nose and mouth, for the duration of their time in the theatre. Please note that bandanas, neck gaiters, and masks with exhalation valves are not accepted. In lobby spaces, all visitors must wear a face mask when not actively eating or drinking.

Wellness:  Any person who feels unwell or (a) has any COVID-19 Symptoms (b) has had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 10 days, or (c) has had close contact with anyone confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19 agrees not to come to BLUEBARN.

Risk:  Attendees understand that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Those purchasing or attending BLUEBARN events voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Compliance:  All BLUEBARN attendees must follow all health and safety procedures and signage posted while at BLUEBARN events. BLUEBARN reserves the right to require visitors who do not follow our guidelines to leave an event immediately. Any visitors who are disrespectful or discourteous to other guests, staff, or volunteers may also be asked to leave.


You will be required to show a valid photo ID and proof of vaccination upon entering the building. An original vaccination card, a photocopy of your card, or a photo on your smartphone showing your vaccination card is appropriate proof of vaccination.

For your safety, as well as our artists and staff, BLUEBARN will not admit any guests who do not provide the documentation as required above.


Individuals must show full vaccination with a vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or by the World Health Organization (WHO). People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their completion of a CDC or WHO recommended vaccine regimen. Your ticketed performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose vaccine.


For children under 12 and people with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination, guests may provide proof of a COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time.


Currently, the policy is in place through December 31, 2021. We will continue to review our policies on an ongoing basis to evolve with the best practices around health and safety and may revise policies accordingly.
