Frequently Asked Questions: Theatre Exile’s 2022/23 Season

As we welcome audiences back for our 2022-23 season, Theatre Exile remains committed to providing our patrons with quality and provocative productions highlighting important themes and stories. Our hope is that we can bring our patrons back together in our theater as we celebrate Theatre Exile’s 25th anniversary season.

We hope this page can help answer some of the frequently asked questions we’ve received from patrons regarding our upcoming season.

Thank you for your continued support!

Q: I’m still concerned about gathering in public spaces. How will Theatre Exile address the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic?

A: Theatre Exile continues to prioritize the health and safety of our patrons, staff, cast, and crew. For the current season, we will be adopting the following protocols for all indoor productions:

  1. Masks will be mandatory for patrons, staff, and crew.
  2. Audience members will be required to present proof of vaccination.
  3. All staff, artists, and crew present will be vaccinated.
  4. We have one performance per production at which we will only be requiring audiences to wear their masks. Vaccination status will not be checked for the Thursday 2/23 12pm performance of The Light, and for the Thursday 5/17 12pm performance of Abandon.

These policies are subject to change based on the recommendations from the CDC and local restrictions. To keep up with the latest news regarding our COVID protocols, please visit theatreexile.org/safety or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Q: What are the COVID requirements for entry?

A: All patrons must be masked and vaccinated for entry. Proof of vaccination will be required upon entrance to the venue.

Each member of your party must provide proof of vaccination. Patrons who cannot provide proof of vaccination and/or decline to wear a mask, will not be granted entry to the Theatre Exile building. Masks are required throughout the duration of your time in the building and must cover both nose and mouth.

Q: What is an acceptable proof of vaccination?

A: We accept proof of vaccination in the following ways:

  1. Physical Vaccination Record – You may bring a hard copy of your vaccination card, along with a valid driver’s license or ID.
  2. Copy of Vaccination Record – You may also bring a photocopy or picture of your vaccination record, along with a valid driver’s license or ID.

At this time, we are not accepting vaccination records ahead of a performance, proof must be provided at the door. We are working on a system to note the internal records of our loyal Friends in Exile who have been vaccinated so that providing proof of vaccination each time is no longer necessary. Stay tuned for more details as they develop!

Q: Will audiences be able to bring food or drink into the theater?

A: No, audiences are prohibited from bringing food and drink to Theatre Exile’s indoor performances. Additionally, we will not be selling concessions in our building throughout the 2022-23 season.
