The Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts will be implementing new COVID-19 audience protocols within the venue for all fall performances starting October 1st, 2021. All Pioneer Center staff and volunteers will be fully vaccinated, and will wear masks at all times while on-site. To ensure the health and well-being of its audience members, staff, and community, the Pioneer Center put the following safeguards in place: all patrons ages 3 and up are required to wear a mask and prove full vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test result.
“As we begin to return to more normal operations and welcome the community back to our venue, our top priority remains to keep our staff, patrons, volunteers, performers, and backstage crews safe” says Dennyse Sewell, Executive Director of the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts. “The implementation of this updated COVID-19 policy ensures that our patrons have various options in how they gain entry to a performance and so that our doors can remain open for live performing arts experiences despite the ongoing pandemic.”
The following items are required to attend performances at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts starting October 1st, 2021:
1. Photo ID card for verification process
Guests younger than age 18 without ID must be accompanied by an adult with proper identification.
2a. CDC Vaccination card
Physical vaccination card.
A photo of the attendee’s CDC vaccination card as a separate document or stored on a phone or electronic device.
