The safety and well-being of our audiences, artists, students, and staff are the highest priority at Lincoln Community Playhouse. As we all continue to monitor the novel coronavirus COVID-19, we want to make you aware of the measures we have implemented to safeguard the health of those visiting, rehearsing, seeing a production or taking a class at our facility.
Lincoln Community Playhouse has implemented the following sanitation procedures and safety protocols for audiences and volunteers. The Playhouse efforts have been coordinated with the Lancaster County Health Department.
Guidelines Updated - February 28, 2022
Lincoln Community Playhouse will no longer have a vaccination or mask requirement for audience members beginning February 28, 2022. “With the changes in city and national mask guidelines, we felt it was time to ease on earlier restrictions,” stated Morrie Enders, Executive Director, “but people are welcome to wear masks.” All actors, stage crews, front of house volunteers, and camp students are still required to be fully vaccinated. Enders thanked the audiences for their understanding and patience as the Playhouse has tried to maintain the finest standards for operating during the pandemic.
Staff Members are required to be fully vaccinated.
- Volunteers aged 12 and over must provide proof of vaccination.
- Children (between the ages of 5 and 11) must show proof of vaccine with at least one dose administered.
- If a volunteer of any age exhibits COVID symptoms or is exposed to COVID, the Playhouse will consult current CDC Guidelines in determining when the volunteer can return.
- If a volunteer tests positive for COVID, they are required to immediately alert the theatre, so that contact tracing may be conducted.
*Vaccination documentation can be in paper form or a photograph on phone.
