JPAS The Nutcracker COVD Policy
We have been working diligently for the past several months to ensure that we can open our theaters safely and “lift the curtain”. We have been coordinating with the State Fire Marshal to ensure that all rules in the modified Phase 2 guidelines are being properly followed.
Please review our theatre safety protocols below so that together we can enjoy the return of live performances. We greatly appreciate your cooperation with our new rules, which include wearing a mask, physical distancing, and other measures to keep us all safe and healthy.
Thank you for your support of Jefferson Performing Arts Society. We have missed you!
