We relate to the hunger for community gathering that many are feeling and are doing all we can to continue to offer The Z’s unique live entertainment and arts engagement safely through each phase of the health crisis. Our new policies favor health and safety guidelines that are more strict in terms of personal action over guidelines regarding distancing in order to retain full capacity in the venue, returning us closer to normal and allowing our community to gather in relative safety.

Safety protocols will change and evolve regularly. Please check this page before you come to an event. As of September 13, 2021, here is what you can expect at our events.


Patrons who are of approved age for vaccination (currently 12+) will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken 72 hours prior to an indoor event. More info on CDC Guidelines for vaccines and testing here.

Patrons choosing to provide proof of vaccination will be offered a physical card and/or badge on their patron file to indicate proof of vaccination has been shown, so it only needs to be provided once. Proof can be provided at the door or at the box office prior to the event date, in hard copy or digital, including a digital vaccine record which can be acquired HERE, with matching photo ID.

Patrons choosing to provide test results or those with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test that was taken within 72 hours of the performance date. Proof can be provided at the door, in hard copy or digital, with matching photo ID.

Patrons who are under-age for vaccination (currently 11 and under) will be required to wear masks in the facility.

Masks are recommended for all patrons at indoor, public events, per current CDC guidelines. Our staff and volunteers will be masked during public events.

Additional safety measure below have been put into place with the aim to make your patron experience the most comfortable:

  • Everyone working at The Z has met the same proof of vaccination or testing requirement we are asking of patrons. This includes staff, artists, and volunteers.
  • Our theatres’ ventilation systems are up to the recommended standard for COVID-19 protection. These NEW Ion Filters HVAC proactively treats the air in the occupied space at the source of contamination.
  • Our cleaning protocols will remain in place. They include disinfecting of high touch public areas before and immediately after each performance. The theater is also disinfected after each event using electrostatic sprayers.

PLEASE NOTE: Capacity limits put in place for social distancing in the theaters have been released. If you prefer a seat away from other patrons, please call the box office. We will do our best to fulfill seating requests when space is available.   

If you have additional questions or concerns, please email us.
