Suze's PCA Covid Mitigation Measures

Last updated 9/27/2021

Suze's Prescott Center for the Arts has taken several measures to ensure the safety of our patrons, staff, and performers on campus. As we take the steps to safely reopen PCA while we navigate the COVID restrictions still in place, it is important to recognize that things will be different! 

There is no “perfect” way to proceed during this pandemic, but we have drawn upon the guidelines suggested by local, state, and federal agencies, experts, and associations, and in particular, on the guidance provided by the United States Department of Labor.

MASK GUIDELINES 

Patrons should not visit PCA if they have tested positive for Covid-19 or are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. 

The decision to attend a SPCA production is a personal choice, so the following mask guidelines are now in place for SPCA performances: 

Due to ever changing guidelines from the Center for Disease Control we have adopted the following guidelines for our Theatre patrons regarding masking procedures.

We would ask that all our patrons be masked when arriving to Theatre and wear the masks until they are seated, at which time they can remove them.  

We appreciate your understanding as we keep our community safe and healthy

Safety Procedures at Suze's PCA

Ticketless option
Hand sanitizing stations available throughout the building
Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures
Enhanced air circulation system throughout the building
Digital playbill and menu available

If you are sick, Stay home!

Stay home when feeling ill, when exposed to COVID-19 (for instance, if someone at home is infected), or if diagnosed with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Call the box office if you are unable to attend to exchange your tickets or credit your account until you can attend.  The box office is open Tuesday - Saturday 10-3 or you can leave a voice mail.

Facility Sanitization and Ventilation

PCA has increased cleaning and sanitization practices.  The entire theater is cleaned and sanitized before and after every event in accordance with CDC public spaces recommendations for Covid-19 mitigation.

A reverse fan system has been installed in the cabaret and to be used during the run of the show.

There will be a weekly deep-cleaning/sanitization in the theater and gallery. After each performance, our stewards and cleaning staff will include additional high-touch surfaces in the standard cleaning of restrooms, lobby, theater and backstage areas.

Ticketing

All shows will have reserved seating to maintain physical distancing requirements.

Tickets must be reserved in advance so house staff can plainly see how the house will be configured for each performance in order to perform pre-show duties.

The audience is reduced to 50% . All patrons and staff are required to socially distance and mask while entering, walking around the venue, and exiting. Masks may be removed once you are seated at your table.

Patrons Attendance Option

Even with all the safety and sanitation protocols, you may still not feel comfortable attending one of our performances. We understand this is a very uncertain time. Fortunately, the value of your tickets can remain on your account to be used at a later date or donated.

As the best practices and policies by our regional and national health officials are updated or revised, we will immediately implement those recommendations. We are optimistic with the opening of our new season, and we will continue to listen, learn and evolve to keep PCA safe and clean.
