We look forward to welcoming you to Chicago Shakespeare Theater
We have implemented the following protocols with guidance from public health experts and in alignment with our colleagues across Chicago’s performing arts community. We highly recommend that you check back to confirm the current policies prior to your performance, as they are subject to change at any time based on evolving guidance.
Our policies as of September 1, 2022:
Masks highly recommended
We strongly encourage patrons to wear a face mask during their time at the Theater.
Flexible ticket exchanges if you’re feeling unwell
If you are unable to attend a performance, we are happy to accommodate you as best we can. Any person who feels unwell, is exhibiting any COVID‑19 symptoms, or has tested positive for COVID‑19 in the past 10 days should stay home. Submit your request for a new date through our Customer Service Portal or contact our Box Office at 312.595.5600 during regular business hours.
Upgraded sanitation procedures
We continue to practice upgraded cleaning procedures in the Theater’s spaces, including the use of electrostatic sprayers for disinfecting. We have upgraded touchless fixtures and added hand-sanitizing stations in audience areas.
Improved HVAC and air filtration
The Theater’s state-of-the-art ventilation systems have been thoroughly cleaned and tested for maximum efficiency. Upgraded air filters have been installed, and airflow has been shifted to increase the circulation of fresh air.
Protocols are always subject to change based on evolving guidance. As an audience member, you agree to follow the guidelines posted as of your performance date. Any visitors who are disrespectful or discourteous to other guests, staff, or artists may also be asked to leave. We thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
