What You Need To Know About Our Reopening In August (MASK MANDATE IN PLACE)

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR REOPENING*:


First thing to note is we open happily and with the awareness that things can change. We will continue to adapt and update our protocols and procedures in response to the coronavirus pandemic to keep everyone safe. We’re looking at you, Delta Variant.  Please check here often for the latest information.

Update: SHOCKER! City of Atlanta has issued a mask mandate for all indoor facilities (as of July 29, 2021). Until this is lifted, unless you are eating or drinking inside The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse, masks must be worn at all times.



While in Georgia, the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse may not have to legally require that all audiences be vaccinated....but we think it’s a good idea if they are. In fact we would love it if you were. If you are not vaccinated, stay home and stay safe! These plays are 450 years old and you will most assuredly have another chance to see them at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse!

Our staff, actors, crew and volunteers will be fully vaccinated.

We will not require patrons to wear masks unless a mask mandate is put back into place (SEE ABOVE). If you’re wearing a Tavern mask, maybe we will clap or do something special. If you are unable to wear a mask for the duration of your time in our building, please hold off on attending until the mandate is lifted.

Seating in each section will be limited to 40 seats each performance.

Our bar and kitchen will be open with the same offerings as pre-pandemic. QR codes will be available for our menus.

We prefer credit cards for all payments. Please avoid using cash if possible. Don’t even think about bitcoin. Save it for your trip to space.

Hand sanitizer will be available at various stations in the building.

We have installed a REME HALO ultra-violet air filtering system. mmm...breathe in that clean clean particle-free air y’all! Btw...if you’re sick, stay home and get well!

Since our performers have to be vaccinated to be on our stage, they won’t be wearing masks!

The front row will now be 10ft from the front of the stage. If you intend to go Elizabethan and throw tomatoes at the stage, you’ll have to up your game, bro.
