Anyone over the age of 12 attending performances at the DCPA must bring proof of vaccination and a mask.
DENVER – Shakespeare helped kick off the return of live performances to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) stage after the public hall was closed by COVID – and anyone attending a show should be prepared to show proof vaccination and wearing a mask.
The DCPA tells anyone attending an indoor performance of the ballet, symphony, opera or any other event that the registration process will be different than before the pandemic.
Anyone over the age of 12 will need their vaccination card or digital proof, and children under 12 must show a negative COVID-19 test, according to the COVID policy on the DCPA website.
DCPA staff said verifying vaccine evidence can take some time and encouraged people to arrive early to cross the line.
Ticket holders who cannot follow the policies can contact the DCPA box office to discuss their options, which include refunds, account credit, or donating tickets to DCPA.
The vaccination and mask policy applies to paid indoor seated performances in the Boettcher Concert Hall, Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and the Buell, Garner Galleria, Wolf, Kilstrom, Singleton and Jones Theaters.
“We want everything to go as smoothly as possible for the audience and the staff. Get everything in place and on time,” said John Eckeberg of DCPA. “People can come down early, get their immunizations checked, go to dinner before they come to the theater, that’s a great way to do it.”
The arts complex said it has improved air quality, including increased fresh air circulation, improved filters and the installation of ionization devices in different theaters.
