As we have since the first days of the pandemic, we will make safety our top priority. We are happy to join terrific organizations like League of Chicago Theaters, Theatre Communications Group (TCG), and Actors Equity Association (AEA) to make our community safer as we all reopen! 

In accordance with current CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health guidance, Raue Center For The Arts will require all patrons, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks for indoor performances and events until further notice. Raue Center will also continue to offer social distancing with regard to seat assignments.  While masks are encouraged for outdoor performances, they are not required at this time. 

In a greater effort to keep our patrons, staff, artists, and volunteers safe; patrons ages 12 and older are required to provide proof* of full vaccination status OR proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of attending indoor shows or events at Raue Center. Please note that government mandates and venue protocols, including COVID-19 vaccination requirements (e.g., any related timing windows and acceptable type(s) of proof), may vary, and are subject to change, so it is important for you to check back at rauecenter.org/covid for the latest information and updates.

The most effective measures for preventing the further spread of COVID-19 are getting vaccinated, staying home when you are sick, maintaining physical separation between other people while out in public, and frequently washing your hands with either soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub. We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we strive toward a safe return to full operations.

Official vaccine card or digital proof from provider website will be accepted. To find digital proof, you may want to contact your provider or visit the Illinois Dept of Public Health.
