COVID-19 Safety Protocols


The Arkansas Repertory Theatre is committed to the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and broader community.

We can’t tell you exactly how things will look in the months ahead, but we do feel confident we will be able to provide a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for everyone. We appreciate your patience as we continue to make adjustments based on the newest information and guidance from government officials and public health experts. Up-to-date safety protocols will be determined on a production-by-production basis and will be actively communicated to patrons as we approach performances. We will of course accommodate anyone who feels the need to change their plans based on these protocols.


Every Brilliant Thing

The Rep is no longer requiring proof of vaccination, nor a negative COVID-19 test to attend performances. However, this production of Every Brilliant Thing is unique in that it is occurring in an immersive space (our Black Box) and there is the potential for audience interaction with the performer. Therefore, masks will be required of the audience while in the performance space, except while actively drinking concessions. Masks will be provided for all attendees.

Of course, if you have a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or any other symptom associated with COVID-19, please do not attend the event.

If you would like additional information, we invite you to visit the CDC’s county-specific guidance page.

If public health guidance should change between now and the end of performances, we will respond accordingly and notify all affected patrons.
