Updated September 14, 2021
As we resume live performances, we are committed to the health and safety of all of our artists, employees, and guests. We joined hands last month with 18 fellow theatres in the Boston area to announce our commitment to public safety as live, indoor performances restart in the region. All of our organizations will require proof of vaccination or a recent negative test.
We suggest you arrive 45 minutes before the start of the performance in order to be screened and enter.
Beginning September 14 and through at least October 31, 2021, to ensure the safety of all MRT theatregoers, we implement the following policies:
- Patrons who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least 14 days after final dose) will need to present proof of vaccination. You can show either paper or electronic documentation (including a photo of your card or a vaccination app, such as Bindle, VaxYes, Commonpass, Clear, etc.). Those who have not been fully vaccinated will need to submit a COVID-19 test (see below). If you forget your proof of vaccination or negative test, there will be no admittance, and we will work with you to arrange a future visit or video access, or to refund your payment.
- All unvaccinated guests will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test administered within 72 hours prior to the performance. Both PCR and antigen tests are acceptable. We will also accept negative at-home (“rapid”) tests administered within 24 hours prior to the performance. Guests can show either paper or electronic documentation (including a photo of negative results). Persons with a religious or medical exemption must still present a negative test result to enter. If you forget your proof of vaccination or negative test, there will be no admittance, and we will work with you to arrange a future visit or video access, or to refund your payment.
- MRT requires all guests to wear a mask covering your nose and mouth at all times while in the theatre or at an off-site location for a MRT performance, including outdoor locations, except while actively eating and drinking. MRT will provide complimentary masks to guests who forget to bring one. If you choose not to wear a mask, there will be no admittance to the aforementioned properties, and we will work with you to arrange a future visit or video access, or refund your payment.
COVID-19 POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT
We're proud to have joined hands with 14 other Boston-area theatres to keep theatre alive by keeping us all alive. This temporary measure includes requiring proof of vaccination (or negative test result) and wearing a mask. Policies for Wild Horses will vary depending on the venue. We will post updates to the Wild Horses page. We will return to our home, the Nancy L. Donahue Theatre at Liberty Hall, in November. We will monitor conditions and update regularly.
