Health and safety

2023/24 season
(as of Sep 2023)

Last updated on Aug 25, 2023

We listened to you! Berkeley Rep conducted a survey in March 2023 of audiences past and present about masking requirements. We received 9,000 survey responses.

  • We learned that half of our audiences want masks required, and half of our audiences prefer a mask-optional environment.
  • Therefore, we have developed a hybrid schedule to meet our audiences’ mask-wearing needs and/or preferences.

Masks will be required for audiences in our theatres on all Sundays (matinees and evenings) and Tuesdays throughout our 2023/24 season.

  • The Sunday and Tuesday performances provide equitable access to weekdays/weekends, performance times, and price points, including previews.
  • Masks must cover both the nose and mouth.
  • We encourage the use of procedural masks (either alone or with a cloth mask on top) or higher-grade N95 or KN95 masks.
  • No eating or drinking inside the theatres during these performances.
  • Masks will be optional on Sundays and Tuesdays in the Narsai M. David Courtyard, Michael’s Second Act bar, and our indoor lobbies. Eating and drinking are permitted in these areas.

Masks are encouraged but will be optional for audiences in our theatres for all performances from Wednesday through Saturday throughout our 2023/24 season.

  • Beverages in cans, cartons, or plastic cups with lids are welcome in the theatres during these performances. Food is not permitted inside the theatres during any performance.

Proof of vaccination will not be required for audience members in our 2023/24 season.

Our COVID-19 safety protocols will continue to be reviewed and revised based on the advice of medical experts, government guidance, and evolving circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
