WHAT WE MUST ASK OF OUR AUDIENCE:
Patron Requirements

Please note: We are proud to be a professional equity house and we will be adhering to all the policies and procedures laid out by Actors Equity Association (AEA), the union for professional actors and stage managers in the United States.

Safety measures will likely change as COVID-19 guidelines evolve. We will continue to keep ticket-holders updated via email with any changes and the most up-to-date information will always be available on our website. We recommend checking our website for the latest information prior to attending a performance.

  • VACCINATION & BOOSTERS - As of February 1st, audience members are required to provide proof of receiving a COVID-19 booster*. Photo ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination  (including booster shot for those eligible) must be provided by all audience members to attend any performance at Salt Lake Acting Company. Again, all patrons must be fully vaccinated and boosted*. Think of this as being similar to the necessity of presenting a current, valid ID in order to purchase alcohol in Utah. A photo or copy or digital record of your vaccine card will suffice.
    * If you are not eligible for a booster yet, due to the timing of your initial vaccination, you may still attend a performance at SLAC. You must provide proof of being fully vaccinated (final dose of vaccination must be completed at least 14 days prior to the date of attendance). For more guidance on COVID-19 booster eligibility, please reference this chart from the Food & Drug Administration:

 Do I qualify for a COVID-19 vaccine booster and which one? Which primary vaccine series did you complete? Pfizer BioNTech. You can get a booster if It's been at least 5 months since completing a primary series AND you are at least Age 12. Moderna. You can get a booster if It's been at least 5 months since completing a primary series AND you are at least Age 18. Janssen You can get a booster if It's been at least 2 months since completing a primary series AND you are at least Age 18.

  • FACE MASKS - Approved face masks must be worn inside the theatre at all times, except for when hydrating. Concessions will not be sold and food is not allowed in the theatre. Please note: CDC guidelines state that bandanas, gaiters, or masks with vents/valves are not approved masks. If you do not have an approved mask, we will provide one for you.  We highly recommend choosing an effective face mask (i.e. has multiple layers, fits snuggly, etc.). A guide to choosing a mask can be found here. We will have effective mask options for you to utilize if you desire (surgical, KN95s, N95s, etc.).
  • STAY HOME IF YOU’RE SICK - If you are sick, you must stay home. Whether you have a cold or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to anyone with the virus, you must stay home. Contact the box office at 801-363-7522 or for ticketing accommodations including streaming options and ticket exchanges.
  • STREAMING AVAILABILITY - In addition to in-person performances, we will provide streaming options throughout our 2021-2022 season. Streaming dates are TBD until listed on the web page for the individual production.

FAQ

What do you mean by “eligible” for a COVID-19 booster?

We will be following the Center for Disease Control definition of eligibility for a booster, which you can find here. Essentially, once you are at least 2 months past your dose of Janssen (J&J) vaccine or 5 months past your second dose of Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, you are eligible for a booster dose. Once you are eligible, you must have received your COVID-19 booster dose in order to attend a performance at Salt Lake Acting Company. This chart from the FDA is a helpful guide:

I’m not feeling well. What options do I have for my tickets?

Thank you for taking care of everyone by staying home. Please contact the box office at 801-363-7522 or . We are happy to help find a solution. We can set you up to stream the production or we can exchange your tickets for another date. Other options include receiving a gift certificate in the value of the tickets, donating the ticket cost, or receiving a refund.

I lost my vaccination card. What do I do?

The Utah Department of Health has a helpful guide on how to acquire your vaccination information if you have lost it. Amongst those options, there is an app called  Docket through which you can access your Utah Health Department vaccination records. We recommend planning ahead with gathering this information—if you do not have proof of vaccination when attending a production, you will not be admitted into the building. 

What happens if I don't bring my proof of vaccination to the performance? I swear, I'm vaccinated!

Proof of vaccination is required to be admitted (a photocopy or digital record works as well). If you do not bring proof of vaccination, you will not be admitted to the performance. We will do our best to assist you in acquiring your records (through digital options like Docket or having a family member/roommate send a photo of your vaccination card). If acquiring your proof of vaccination is not feasible in time for the performance, we are happy to move your tickets to another performance in the run of the show. 

Have other questions or concerns? Please contact us at 801-363-7522 or . Our remote box office is available Monday-Friday 11am-5pm. In-person box office support is still TBD.
