Welcome home to the Playhouse.
We are thrilled to be inviting audiences back into our theater. There is nothing like the live theater experience: performances that make you feel, think, and spark a conversation — shared between actors and audience.
As of August 31, the Playhouse requires every audience member to be fully vaccinated and wear a mask, ensuring a safe environment for all, so you can sit back, enter the story, and leave the world behind. For more details on our safety protocols, visit our FAQ page.
