An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By attending an event at The Pearl Theater, patrons acknowledge the involved COVID-19 risk and thereby assume responsibility for their own well-being. The Pearl Theater strives to provide a safe and respectful space for artists and audience members and recognizes that this can mean different things to different people in our community. Pearl sponsored events will have a reduced audience capacity to better ensure the health and safety of the people involved with the event production. Partnership events and private rentals are responsible for setting and enforcing COVID safety protocols for their events. The Pearl Theater reserves the right to remove any individual that is visibly sick or exhibiting symptoms of COVID.
