Ensuring the safety of our visitors, staff, artists and volunteers is our top priority. The Arvada Center is implimeneting the following health mandates to slow the spread of COVID-19, effective immediately. With your cooperation, we can remain safe, open, and continue to provide inspiring experiences in the arts and humanities.
We reserve the right to ask anyone not following safety measures - including correctly wearing a mask to cover the nose and mouth - to leave the premises. Thank you to our sponsor SCL Health/Lutheran Medical Center. Visit their website for resources on health, safety and risk assessment.
Thank you for working with us to keep other visitors, staff, and volunteers healthy. With your cooperation, we can continue the arts programming we love.
At this time, we are selling tickets for our 2021-2022 Theatre Season at full capacity, with recommended health and safety guidelines laid out by the Actors' Equity Association. As of September 1 and for the immediate future, audiences will be required to wear a mask inside the theatre during performances, unless actively eating or drinking.
If you're attending a performance happening before September 28, this vaccination mandate does not apply - though a mask is required in our theatre.
Follow the link below to read more about what to bring with you when you arrive for a performance, what counts as a negative COVID test, and more!
Patrons attending any indoor seated performance are required to show proof of vaccination before entering the performance space. This includes the Main Stage Theatre (musical theatre), the Black Box Theatre (plays), Jeffrey Siegel concerts, Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra concerts, and any special performances that take place in these venues.
Showing proof of vaccination allows us to fill our performance venues to full capacity without physical distancing. By filling our theatres, we remain open and able to produce the performances you know and love. Wearing a mask inside the performance venue adds an additional layer of protection that will keep other patrons as well as our unmasked performers safe.
The Arvada Center works closely with Actors’ Equity Association to follow all guidelines and mandates. To keep our work environment safe, all performers are required to be vaccinated. In addition, the Arvada Center has also issued a policy that all staff, volunteers, and internal contractors are required to be vaccinated.
Those individuals who are ineligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may instead show proof of a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the performance space. This may include a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of your performance start time or or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within six hours of the performance start time.
You may provide proof of a negative test using an antigen (rapid take-home) test. However, the negative test result must come from a medical platform that shows your name and the date and time the test was taken. A physical take-home test without a date will not be accepted.
Tests for COVID-19 are free. You can use this resource to locate free testing in your area: https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/community-based-testing-sites/index.html.
If you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms or if you have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you please stay at home. You may contact the Arvada Center Box Office to discuss your ticketing options which may include rescheduling your tickets to a different date, a refund, transferring your funds to a gift certificate, or donating your tickets back to the Arvada Center.

The COVID-19 vaccines have shown to be the most effective protection against the spread of the virus. By having patrons show proof of vaccination, we are doing our part to remain safe, open, and able to deliver our mission of providing engaging arts, humanities, education, and entertainment.
If you would prefer to miss your performance, you can contact the Arvada Center Box Office to discuss your options which include donating your tickets, transferring your purchase to a gift certificate for future use, or receiving a refund.
