Nine Rhode Island Performance Venues and Organizations
to require Audience Vaccinations and Masks:
New COVID-19 protocols in effect until further notice
Island Moving Company and eight other Rhode Island performance venues and organizations have formed a partnership to provide for the safety of their audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers, based on current scientific evidence and best practices around the country.
Organizations included in this effort include:
Festival Ballet Providence, Gamm Theatre, Island Moving Company, Providence Performing Arts Center, Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School, Trinity Repertory Company, United Theatre, Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, and Wilbury Theatre Group.
Effective immediately and until further notice: All patrons attending in-person, indoor events must either show proof of full vaccination against COVID19 (at least 14 days have passed since the final dose), or proof of a negative COVID19 PCR test taken in the prior 72 hours, or proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken in the prior six hours.
All patrons regardless of vaccination status must wear masks over their nose and mouth at all times while inside the venue (unless actively eating or drinking). Please visit the websites of the individual venues for any additional restrictions or details, particularly for children not yet eligible for vaccination. Details may be revisited or revised based on CDC guidance and the evolving circumstances of the pandemic.
While great strides have been made in vaccination rates, the recent rise is cases caused by the Delta variant inspired arts, cultural, and entertainment leaders to take these steps.
Further information regarding individual productions will be available on the Island Moving Company box office as plans for IMC’s 40th Anniversary Season are released in the coming weeks.
