Maryland Ensemble Theatre is taking the following steps to prioritize the health and safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers and performers as we welcome audiences back to the theater this Winter.
PROOF OF VACCINATION OR NEGATIVE COVID TEST
Patrons must present a photo ID and proof they meet the CDC definition of being fully vaccinated at the time of entry into our theater. For those unable to be vaccinated due to certain medical conditions, age or closely held religious beliefs, proof of a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours on the day of the performance is required to be admitted. Children under 2 are exempt and for children ages 2 to 11, the only requirement is to wear a mask.
Ticket purchasers are responsible for communicating these rules to whomever they provide tickets. Performance ticket holders who do not comply with these policies will not be admitted. Patrons who are unable to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID -19 test at the door will not be admitted.
Masks will be required for all audience members, staff and volunteers regardless of vaccination status and no concessions will be sold during this time to encourage patrons to remain masked.
The vaccination and mask requirements are subject to change. We are actively monitoring conditions and recommendations from national, state, local and CDC officials and will continue to update our policies as circumstances require.
CONCESSIONS IS CLOSED
While we love to snack and drink before shows and during intermission – concessions will be closed until further notice to help ensure audience members are masked the entire time they are in our space.
For those patrons who purchased tickets prior to the implementation of this policy, if this negatively impacts your decision to attend, please contact Karim Darwish, Audience Services Manager for exchange, credit, or refund at kdarwish@marylandensemble.
If you don’t feel well, have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 or been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please stay home.
PLEASE NOTE: These protocols currently in place are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19. While we will provide the most up-to-date public health procedures to improve patron safety, they are not an absolute protection against contracting COVID-19. Patrons assume their own risk by entering the facility.
