Plan Your Visit

Open Stage is located in downtown Harrisburg. We encourage our patrons to arrive at least 30 minutes early to have time to find parking and enjoy a drink at The Court Street Cabaret bar.

Safety Protocols

Open Stage is joining other theatre companies across the nation in requiring that audiences provide proof of vaccination to attend all live public performances OR proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time.

 

We are committed to the safety of all who work, perform, and visit our venue, and invite audiences to join in the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. In addition to audiences, we have mandated COVID vaccinations for performers and staff.

 

To be permitted to enter the facility, patrons must be able to show proof that they are fully vaccinated at the time of their entry into the theater OR proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time. 

Entry will be denied for guests who do not provide the documentation as required below.

This policy is in effect for performances now through October 31, 2021. For performances in November 2021 and beyond, we anticipate a review of policies in October, and may include a relaxation of certain provisions or an extension of this policy as the science dictates.

PROOF OF COMPLETE VACCINATION AND PHOTO ID REQUIRED

“Complete vaccination” means that 14 days have passed since receiving the single or final dose of FDA or WHO authorized COVID-19 vaccines. Patrons may display proof of vaccination with a physical or digital copy of their vaccination card. Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. Patrons must also present a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport.

Patrons who are not vaccinated must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time. Proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time is also acceptable. 

MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR EVERYONE

Masks will also be required for audiences inside the theater, except while actively eating concessions or drinking. Masks will not be required in The Court Street Cabaret (lobby bar) area when consuming drinks. All masks must completely cover the nose and mouth and comply with the CDC guidelines for acceptable face coverings.

With our limited capacity, purchasing tickets in advance is highly encouraged.

Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the building.

Seating and high-touch areas will be sanitized after every performance.

Patrons and staff are encouraged to maintain physical distance.
