Starting November 22, 2021, and in partnership with our venue Dayton Live, proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test, ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED to attend in-person events.

Masks are still required for patrons ages six and up while in our venues, except when actively eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status. At this time, food and drink may only be consumed while outside of the performance venue. Upon entering the concert hall or theatre, we require that all patrons ages six and up wear masks during the entirety of the performance.
