Covid Rules

More than ever this season, safety is paramount. Keep an eye on this page for updates as information evolves. In the meantime, here are the big three rules that we're asking everyone to play along with.

  • If you feel ill, please do not travel to APT. Contact the Box Office for your options at 608-588-2361. 
  • With the exception of the actors, we will all be masked on the APT grounds, and in the shops and theaters, unless actively eating or drinking. 
  • APT’s ticketing software will automatically distance groups in the theaters. 

Other Safety Precautions

  • The theaters can only be filled to a maximum of 25% capacity (30 people in the Touchstone Theatre, and about 250 in the Hill Theatre). 
  • Patrons will be expected to distance on the APT campus, and on the paths.   
  • All HVAC and ventilation systems have been upgraded in APT buildings.  
  • Common areas will be sanitized regularly.   
  • Events, including Play Talks, Backstage Talks, Talkbacks and Sunday Salons will all be virtual. Visit the Events page for more information.  
  • The Gift Shop and Concessions in the Touchstone Theatre will be closed this season. 
  • Lower Concessions will be open before Hill performances, and Concessions in the Hill Lobby will be open before the performance and at intermission. Please note: made-to-order sandwiches will not be available from Concessions this year.  
  • The Gateway Gift Shop will be open before Hill performances. The Shop in the Hill Lobby will be open before performances, and at intermission. The number of shoppers in the store at one time will be limited.  
  • For the safety of the actors, the first few rows of seats in each theater will not be available for purchase this season.   
  • The actors are locked down in pods for the duration of rehearsal and performances so that they can remain unmasked during the show. For their safety and yours, please keep your distance if you see them off stage.
