COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Updated Apr. 15, 2022

In accordance with the latest guidance from local, state and federal public health agencies, Sacramento Theatre Company has updated the requirements for all patrons attending STC events effective as of the date above and which will remain in effect until further notice.



In order to enter the theatre, all ticketholders – including children – will be required to show proof of COVID vaccination and a matching photo ID. If ticketholders cannot show proof of vaccination, they will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the theater. 

Proof of Vaccination

“Fully vaccinated” means that your event date is at least 14 days after your final vaccine dose. You can provide a physical vaccination card, a photo on your phone of your vaccination card, or a digital vaccine record. California residents may request a digital vaccination record at

Proof of Negative Test

Proof of negative test may be either: Negative PCR Test documented in writing from a medical professional or laboratory taken within 72 hours of performance start time; OR an app-based written result from an FDA-approved antigen (rapid) test taken within four (4) hours of the performance start time.

Photo ID

A Driver’s License or other photo ID will be required for entry for all adults. Minors need not show a photo ID, but they must present proof of full vaccination or a negative test result as outlined above, and their accompanying adult may certify to their identity.


In our Mainstage theatre, masks are optional. In our Pollock Stage, due to the intimate nature of the space, masks are still required. Masks must be worn in the Pollock Stage at all times unless actively eating or drinking.


Additional COVID-19 Safety Protocols

All staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated as are the instructors for the School of the Arts. Performers must show proof of vaccination and all cast and crew members test regularly to keep each other and patrons safe as they perform without masks.

In Summer 2020, we replaced our air filtration system with state-of-the-art units throughout all of our buildings, that trap and kill all airborne viruses, including flu and COVID-19, as well as exchanging with outside air multiple times per hour and near constant circulation in order to facilitate the system scrubbing the air in every space.

STC has implemented CDC recommended cleaning practices before, during and after performances, with a focus on high-touch areas. Several sanitation upgrades have also taken place, such as automatic towel & soap dispensers and hand sanitizer is available throughout the theatre lobby.

We will continue to follow all up-to-date COVID compliant guidelines to ensure a safe and enjoyable return to live theatre. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding our procedures.
