In order to keep our actors, staff, and audience safe, we’ve implemented the following protocols:

  • All audience members will be required to show proof of a full* COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Exemptions to the vaccine requirement will be accepted for individuals with conditions that prevent them from being vaccinated (verifiable proof from healthcare provider will be required)Please contact the box office at boxoffice@hvshakespeare.org.
  • We encourage masks in the tent, especially in proximity to the stage, due to the most recent and dominating spread of the COVID BA.4 and BA.5 sub-variants and the rising infection rates in Putnam County.
