​COVID-19 Safety

Updated April 2022

We want to ensure your visit to The Theatre School is comfortable, safe, and fun. Note that our guidelines and the theatrical experience may be modified at any time,  based on the latest public health, city and university recommendations. Please visit this page before you purchase a ticket or attend a performance, as our policies are likely to change.

Face Masks:
While DePaul University has lifted the on-campus mask requirement, wearing a mask is still highly recommended for indoor spaces. Due to the intimate nature of theatre, The Theatre School will continue to require audience members to wear masks. Face coverings should be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth, and meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) standards. This protocol will remain in effect until further notice and will be evaluated regularly based on the needs of our community.

​Vaccination/Attestation Requirement:
Proof of vaccination or recent negative test results are no longer required. 

Flexibility with Ticketing: 

With many unknowns, we will be readily able to accommodate exchanges, credits, and refunds should you be unable to attend an event. We will also ask that you, our audience, be patient when we need to reschedule or cancel performances due to illness. We are working hard to create a culture of prioritizing self-care and community wellness and this will affect scheduled performances along the way. Please be sure to check one of our social media pages before traveling to the theatre to ensure that the performance has not been cancelled.

Air Ventilation System and Sanitation: 
DePaul University invested in and installed improved ventilation systems to ensure a safe environment. The university will continue with its rigorous cleaning throughout the building. Additionally, DePaul has built and installed many hand sanitizer stations that can be found throughout the building. More information can be found here

Ticket holders assume all risks and dangers relating to any event at The Theatre School. By visiting The Theatre School you acknowledge and voluntarily agree to assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and other communicable diseases, and all other terms and conditions.
