PROOF OF VACCINATION & MASKING REQUIRED

Book-It Repertory Theatre joins with other area performance groups in requiring masking and proof of vaccinations or negative COVID-19 testing to ensure a safe and successful return of the Seattle-area arts.

For entry to any and all performances at The Center Theatre at Seattle Center, patrons, artists, and staff will need to wear a mask and provide proof of vaccination (in a clear and legible format) or negative COVID-19 test (PCR within 48 hours or antigen within 24 hours. Please, do not attend your scheduled performance if anyone living in your household, or to whom you have regular exposure, is awaiting a Covid test within your 48- or 24-hour test period.) There will be no separate sections for vaccinated/unvaccinated patrons.

Policies will evolve over time in response to the pandemic.

People with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the performance start time.

Book-It staff will check for proof of vaccination and negative Covid tests at the doors as a condition of entry. Additionally, masking is required inside the venue. Patrons and employees will be required to wear masks at all times inside the venue.

DETAILS:

MASK REQUIREMENT
Masks will be required for all patrons, in all areas of the venue (lobby, restrooms, theatre). Refusal to comply with the mask requirement, or to wearing a mask properly (covering the mouth and nose), will result in the patron being asked to leave the venue and no refund will be given.

A mask is anything made of two or more layers of tightly woven fabric with ties or straps that go around your head or behind your ears that completely covers your mouth and nose and fits securely on the sides of your face and under your chin.

FULLY-VACCINATED PATRONS
A patron vaccinated against COVID-19 by a two-dose mRNA vaccine (such as Moderna and Pfizer), or a single dose vaccine (such as Johnson & Johnson), is considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after the final dose of vaccine (the second dose for a two-dose regimen, or the single dose for a single-dose regimen). Clear and legible documentation of vaccination status must be shown with valid I.D. upon entry to the venue and available upon request at any time.

The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination:

  • Vaccination card (which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered) OR
  • a photo of a vaccination card as a separate document OR
  • a photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device OR
  • documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider electronic health record or state Immunization Information System record.
  • AND Matching photo ID required at the door
  • NOTE: Self-reported vaccination records that are not verified by a health care provider cannot be accepted.

UNVACCINATED PATRONS
People with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination will be required to show proof of a negative Covid PCR test within 48 hours prior to the performance, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours prior to the performance.

The following are acceptable as proof of a negative COVID-19 test result:

  • Printed document (from the test provider or laboratory) OR
  • an email or text message displayed on a phone or electronic device from the test provider or laboratory. The information provided should include name of person tested, type of test performed, and date of negative test result (for PCR test, date of negative result must be within prior 48 hours; for antigen test, date of negative result must be within prior 24 hours).
  • AND Matching photo ID required at the door
  • NOTE: Self-reported negative test results that are not from a test provider, a laboratory, or a health care provider cannot be accepted.

Please note, children ages 5-12 are now eligible for the vaccine and are, therfore, subject to the above protocols, however our mainstage performances are generally not recommended for children under the age of 12.

Book-It generally recommends performances for ages 12+. Book-It does not allow babes in arms or children under five. For information on the suitability of a specific performance, please call the Box Office at 206.216.0833 or visit our individual show pages.

Most Book-It performances take place in The Center Theatre, which is located on the bottom floor of the Seattle Center Armory (previously known as the Center House) at 305 Harrison Street, Seattle, WA 98109. It is accessible by car or public transit.

We realize that in the hustle and bustle of Seattle Center the opportunity for getting lost is high. The Armory has many entry points:

It’s easiest to get to The Center Theatre if you use the east entrance that faces the playground and MoPOP. If you’re walking south towards the Monorail and you run into the Chihuly Garden, you’ve gone too far!

Are you in the food court? Either take the stairs or the elevator to the 1st floor. The Center Theatre is down the hall from The Children’s Museum.

Are you at the North entrance with the door that says “The Armory” and the giant eagles? Head east towards the playground, hang a right, and use the east entrance.

Please use moderation in applying perfume, cologne, or scented lotion as some patrons have allergies.
