COVID-19 & Public Health Policy

George Street Playhouse and The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center are committed to the safety of our patrons, artists, and staff. We are guided by CDC guidelines and the state of New Jersey for our policies in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting the health of our audiences, staff, volunteers, artists and their production teams.

The below policies will be reevaluted in June following the close of the 2021/22 season.

Currently all patrons attending a performance at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) must show proof of vaccination, including a booster if eligible, and a photo ID.

Visit the CDC for more

Proof can be provided via The Rutgers Campus Pass, a vaccine card, or through NJ’s Docket App or any other official state vaccination app (which can be downloaded from the app store on your phone). If not vaccinated, you must present a Negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance date in addition to a photo ID. 

All patrons are required to wear masks at all times while inside the venue. This includes children older than 2 who have not been vaccinated. KN95 or N95 masks are recommended.

All policies are subject to change based on current guidelines and standards.
