New Health & Safety Information

Musical Theatre West and the Carpenter Performing Arts Center have joined together to provide audiences with the safest spaces possible to enjoy live entertainment once again.

We are constantly monitoring changes to state, county, city, and university policies. Please check our website or call our box office on the date of your performance to ensure you have the latest information.

In accordance with updated CA and County mandates for mega events, the weekend of March 25 -27 will be our final weekend for vaccine checks at the theatre. Patrons of the Carpenter Performing Arts Center must provide a photo ID along with proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to entering the theatre.

Masks are recommended but not required for vaccinated persons. Masks are required for unvaccinated persons.

Beginning April 1, 2022, vaccine checks will no longer be required. Patrons are asked to self-attest to their vaccine status and mask accordingly.

We are excited to invite audiences back for all indoor performances in a safe space for attendees, artists, crew, and staff.

Thank you for doing your part to help us keep each other healthy. We look forward to seeing you at the show!
