The health and safety of our guests, artists, and staff is our top priority. Our re-opening process has been slow, methodical, and done while closely working with our partners at the Straz as well as medical and scientific experts.

Current health and safety policies will remain intact until further notice, regardless of any relaxation of recommendations from the city, county, or state. In addition to physical distancing and seating rules our precautions include mandatory face coverings at all times while inside. Other efforts include:

  • To better protect everyone we have moved from the smaller Shimberg Playhouse into the much larger Jaeb Theater, a space that makes it easier to do our absolute best for everyone — guests, artists, and staff.
  • Capacity of the theater has been reduced to 30%, and all additional seating has been removed from the theater.
  • The theater is fully sanitized both before and after every performance.
  • Increased air purification measures include HVAC upgrades and additional air purification units in the lobby and backstage spaces.
  • Tables are 11 feet apart —  so even if you move your chair out, you’ll still be 6 feet away from your neighbor.
  • Performers will be at least 8 feet away from the front row of seats.
  • Temperature and health screenings are mandatory for all guests, performers and employees.
  • Food and drink will only be available outside the theater so that masks can be worn for the duration of the performance. 
  • Paperless ticketing and programs are available in the Straz Center’s free app, and we prefer cashless transactions on site.
  • Complimentary hand sanitizer is available throughout the Straz campus and on each table inside the theater.

Health professionals from the Cleveland Clinic, Tampa General Hospital, and the Rodham Institute at George Washington University assisted in the developing the “living handbook” guiding our efforts. Other resources include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, OSHA, Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, and the World Health Organization.

We’re thrilled to return to mainstage work and we hope that you’re excited, too. If you would like us to remain open it is imperative that you be our partners in this by following all protocols during your visit and by continuing to heed scientific and medical experts in the pursuit of your daily lives.

We’re in this together.
