The following protocol are also in place through December 31:

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE

Purchase tickets for any performance in our 2021-2022 season. If you cannot attend a performance for health reasons or if any performance must be cancelled, patrons may reschedule at no charge or receive a credit to be used at their convenience.

VENTILATION

The NorShor Theatre has an up to date HVAC system. 100% of the air flowing through our ventilation system is pulled from the outside.

CLEANING

Before and after each performance, high touch surfaces such as railings, countertops, and seats are cleaned and disinfected. Hand sanitizer is easily accessible throughout the building.

COVID-19 TESTING

All actors in NorShor productions take an FDA authorized antigen or PCR test three times a week. These tests are administered to ensure there are no breakthrough infections in our cast of ANNIE. 

MASK POLICY 

Through December 31, everyone ages 3 and up in a Duluth Playhouse venue must wear an acceptable face covering at all times, including during the show. Exceptions will be given while a patron is eating or drinking in designated lobby locations. While concessions will be sold, there will be no food or drink allowed in the seating area. All face masks must cover the nose and mouth and comply with the CDC guidelines for acceptable face coverings.

Through October 31, proof of full-course COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within the previous 72 hours must be shown before entering the theater from all patrons ages 12 and up. 

Patrons have the option of bringing their vaccine card (or a photocopy) to the performance or by showing a digital picture of their vaccine card on their smartphone. In addition to proof of vaccination, all guests 18 years or older must also present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, that matches the name on their vaccine card.

Individuals 12 and up who are not fully vaccinated have the option to present a negative COVID-19 test result. The test must have been taken within the previous 72 hours. Test results may be presented on paper or a smartphone and must clearly state the date and time the test was performed.
