ARGENTA COMMUNITY THEATER

AUDIENCE COVID SAFETY POLICY

FOR PERFORMANCES OF PIPPIN, AUGUST 18-28, 2021

Dear ACT Audiences,

The Argenta Community Theater continues to be committed to the safety of our patrons, performers and staff. We have all gone through a difficult period and we must continue to be community minded while Arkansas endures yet another difficult period. No one wants to return to a shutdown and we must all do our part to prevent that from happening. We encourage those in our community who have not been vaccinated to do so.
Argenta Community Theater will require PROOF OF VACCINATION for audience members attending performances of PIPPIN (August 18-28).  Per the latest guidance form the CDC, we also encourage all those who are vaccinated to wear masks when inside the theater, unless actively eating or drinking. Masks will be available free of charge at all performances.
(SINCE OUR GRAND OPENING DINNER IS OUTDOORS ON AUGUST 17TH, PROOF OF VACCINATION WILL NOT BE REQUIRED, BUT MASKS WILL, UNTIL YOU ARE SEATED WITH YOUR GROUP)
Those who have a medical or religious exemption will be required to wear a mask for the duration of your visit to Argenta Community Theater.
The performing arts are an important part of our community, not any different from seeing a movie, a concert or a sports game. Let’s all do all we can to bring an end to this pandemic!
Helpful Notes:
*Valid proof of vaccination includes an original vaccination card, a digital copy, or a photograph of one’s Covid-19 vaccination record. Lost cards can be easily replaced wherever one received their vaccination or by calling the Arkansas Department of Health at 501-661-2000.
*ACT will have masks available free of charge. Hand Sanititzer is available throughout the theater. ACT’s facility is cleaned and sanitized before and after each performance.
*ACT actors, crew and staff are fully vaccinated.
*The restrooms are cleaned and sanitized before and after every performance.
*We encourage you to stay at home if you are feeling unwell or have had a known exposure to person who has tested positive for COVID-19.
*In the 18 months since our last in-person performance at Argenta Community Theater, we have repeatedly been reminded of the need for the shared experience of the performing arts. In order to provide that experience in the safest possible way, we feel that these restrictions are necessary and prudent. If any current ticket holder does not wish to comply with these requests, we will gladly refund your ticket purchase. Email info@argentacommunitytheater.org to make changes to your reservation.
*This policy will be revisited for future performances and announcements will be made as needed.
*Performances of STEEL MAGNOLIAS will follow a similar policy, as stated by show producers ACANSA Arts Festival of the South.

We appreciate your cooperation as we work to re-open the theater as safely as possible.

Sincerely,

The Argenta Community Theater Board of Directors
