As we have learned during the past year, COVID-19 health and safety recommendations are constantly changing. Our plans at this time are primarily focused on the safety of our artists, staff, and audiences. Our protocols will continue to evolve as we work towards our reopening in December 2021 and will remain flexible in order to be ready serve the needs of our community. 

We will follow all health and safety guidelines laid out by the state and our union partners regarding masks, cleaning procedures, and all COVID-19 protocols to ensure the safety of everyone in the theater during the 2021/22 season.  

We are committed to keeping this webpage updated and will be dating this page as time goes on to ensure you have the most up to date information and know when changes have been made.

We are planning to sell all performances at regular seating capacity, but if health and safety guidelines change there is the possibility of capacity restrictions becoming necessary. If so, it is possible that you and all of our ticketholders will be reseated. If this is required, we will seat you as close as possible to your current seats and/or at seats of similar value. All of our standard ticket policies apply for performance changes and cancellations. We appreciate your patience and flexibility.

Health & Safety Protocols 


The safety of our artists, staff, and our audiences is our main priority. It is difficult to predict today what every safety recommendation may look like over the course of the next year, but we know that COVID-19 will be a part of our lives for the foreseeable future. For that reason, right now we are planning to require masks to be worn by all audience members and staff during the 2021/22 season, regardless of vaccination status. We recognize that circumstances are changing on a regular basis, and we will continue to follow Public Health and union guidelines closely as our reopening nears to ensure we are in line with the most up-to-date policies and procedures. 


Seattle Rep is concerned for audience, staff, and artist safety and continues to discuss vaccine protocols for live performances. Public health and union guidance continues to evolve and Seattle Rep will post the most current guidelines for live performances on this webpage as our December 2021 reopening nears. In the meantime, we are linking to resources via our social media networks in partnership with our industry and government officials and working closely with our partners on greater communication efforts with public health and safety at the forefront of our reopening plans.

Health & Safety Improvements 

Airflow Improvements 

HVAC Improvements 

All air filters have been replaced and upgraded to MERV 13 throughout our building’s HVAC systems.  

Increasing Airflow in Lobby and Bagley Wright Theater 

The renovations to the Bagley Wright Theater lobby and Patron Services Office vestibule have been made with patron safety in mind. 

Digital Ticketing 

All tickets will be delivered digitally via your Seattle Rep account. You can pull your tickets up on your mobile phone or print tickets at home. 

The Patron Services Office (PSO) Will Call window will be open during performances for those who need it. Through our digital-first ticketing process, we hope to reduce the number of tickets available for pick-up at Will Call to prevent crowded lines from forming. 

Sanitation Stations 

Touchless sanitation stations have been installed throughout our lobby with free hand sanitizer for patron use.
