COVID-19 Policies

Updated May 17, 2022

Vaccination Requirement

Guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine to attend a performance and must show proof of vaccination with a valid ID at the time of entry into RCD. “Fully vaccinated” is defined by the CDC as has received all recommended doses in their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine, at least two weeks after final dose in primary series. All staff are currently required to be fully vaccinated and are subject to additional onsite testing protocols.

Eligible proof of vaccination must include:

  • Personal identifiers that match the personal identifiers on valid ID.
  • Name of official source issuing the record (e.g., public health agency, government agency, or other authorized vaccine provider)
  • Vaccine manufacturer and date(s) of vaccination

The only exception to the above will be guests under the age of 12, or those who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. Guests under 12 and those who need reasonable accommodation due to a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief must provide at least one of the following: negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time.

Masks Required

Masks are be required to enter the RCD and must always be worn, with the exception of when actively eating or drinking. Acceptable masks include cloth masks with 2-3 layers of fabric, surgical masks, KN95, and N95 masks. Masks should fit the face, covering both the nose and the mouth, and create a tight seal to prevent air from entering or escaping around the sides. Face coverings that do not meet these requirements, such as bandanas, gaiters, and scarves will not be accepted. Those who do not have a mask will be provided with one. Those who refuse to wear a mask will be denied entry and will not be entitled to a refund.

Food & Drink

We will offer a select menu of pre-packaged snacks and drinks before the show and during intermission. We ask that all food be consumed while observing a minimum of 6 feet of distance from other parties.

Masks may only be removed while actively eating and drinking. No outside food or drink is permitted at RCD, except for bottled water and personal water bottles.

No food is permitted in the performance space. Bottled water is permitted in the performance space. Masks may only be removed briefly in the performance space to drink.

HOURS OF Operation

Early arrival for performances will be limited to 40 minutes prior to performance time. Audience members must wait outside until 40 minutes prior to performance time and until they have been cleared for entry according to the vaccination policy. Please prepare for inclement weather.


Ticket Services will be open one hour prior to performances. We strongly encourage all audience members to purchase tickets online ahead of time.
