COVID-19 & Public Health Policy

George Street Playhouse and The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center 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. 

Beginning September 1, patrons attending any performance at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) must show proof of vaccination via photo ID and a vaccine card, or proof through NJ’s Docket 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 and a Photo ID. 

All patrons are required to wear masks at all times while inside the venue. This includes children who have not been vaccinated. 

These guidelines are subject to change to reflect the latest reccomendations by the CDC and industry partners.

George Street Playhouse is following the procedures set forth by the NBPAC, as detailed below.
