CRT's Covid-19 Safety Policy

Effective for all Spring 2022 performances:

SFA COVID-19 Patron Vaccination Requirement Attestation

Consistent with a growing number of performing arts venues across the country, the University of Connecticut School of Fine Arts (“SFA”) has adopted the COVID-19 vaccination/testing requirements herein (the “SFA COVID-19 Patron Vaccination Requirement”) for patrons at all performances held at SFA venues or by SFA performing entities in other locations on the UConn campus (individually or collectively, the “Event”). Additionally, our artists, backstage crew, and staff will comply with vaccination and testing protocols to promote the safety of all visitors to SFA venues.

The safety of our patrons, faculty, staff, students, and artists remains a significant priority for us as we return to in-person performances. It is our hope that these additional layers of protection will allow us to all experience the power of live performances once more.

As a condition of being permitted to attend the Event, all patrons must agree to fully comply with and satisfy the SFA COVID-19 Patron Vaccination Requirement below. (Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the School of Fine Arts Patron Vaccination Requirement.)
