Health & Safety Protocols

We will be updating these protocols as information becomes available. Please check back often.

You play an essential role in allowing us to reopen safely. With your help we can maximize health and safety compliance and minimize disruption of events. All patrons must observe the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company’s Health and Safety Guidelines. Click here to read more about why we still have protocols in place.

These guidelines are subject to change based on updates from the CDC and VT Department of Health. In addition to State and CDC guidelines, we are also observing safety protocols required by Actors’ Equity Association, the union that allows us to work with so many talented actors and stage managers.

While you are at our venues...

Masks – Masks are required indoors for all patrons, staff, and volunteers at the Walker Farm Theatre before, during, and after any performance. Bandanas, neck gaiters, and face shields used without a mask are not sufficient. For a detailed "DO" and "DO NOT" illustration of how to wear a mask, please click here

Vaccinations – All patrons entering the theatre must present proof of vaccination and matching photo ID. Acceptable proof of vaccination includes the physical vaccine card, a legible photocopy, or a photo on the patron's phone that can be read by staff. If any patron is not vaccinated due to age, medical, or religious reasons, negative test results no older than 72 hours may be presented in lieu of proof of vaccination. If proof of vaccination or a negative test result is unable to be shown for any reason, the patron will not be allowed entry into the building or granted a refund for the cost of their ticket.

Food & Drink No food or drink is allowed inside the theatre. Patrons may consume food or drink outdoors at our picnic tables under the silos.

Physical Distancing – Audiences, volunteers, and staff will be required to maintain a safe physical distance between themselves and individuals not in their party. Seating at our venues is reduced to accommodate for safely spaced seating, and seating locations will be pre-assigned by Box Office staff.

Sanitization of VenuesAll Weston Playhouse Theatre Company venues maintain a high standard of cleanliness through frequent disinfection of common spaces before and after all performances. 

Touchless Check-in Procedures To reduce the risk of virus transmission between patrons, ushers, and staff, digital playbills optimized for your mobile device will be made available. Instead of paper tickets, Box Office staff will be using a door list for check-in. There will be no printed tickets, playbills, or other dramaturgical materials.

If you're feeling sick and/or experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, or may have recently been in contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19, please stay home and call the Box Office (802-824-5288) to discuss your options.
