COVID-19 Protocols

McCarter Theatre Center values the safety of our audiences, artists, and staff. We regularly update our COVID protocols and procedures based on CDC, federal, state, county, city, and other scientific data. McCarter reserves the right to alter safety protocols at any time and at its sole discretion including but not limited to social distancing, vaccines/testing, masks, food service limitations, venue capacity, and entrance requirements as it deems appropriate.


Closer to the performance date, we will notify you of the current requirements via an emailed performance reminder. 

After careful consideration, McCarter has made the decision to become mask optional. While we strongly encourage the wearing of masks, it is no longer required within our theatres.

However, for Blues for an Alabama Sky only, we will be offering a Mask Required performance on 5/24/2023 at 7:30pm. Concessions will not be available for masked performances.

We will continue to closely monitor health and safety guidelines in the coming months and will adapt our policies as needed.
