What to Expect In-Person at Seattle Rep

Please check this page before you come to an in-person event at Seattle Rep for the most up-to-date protocols.

Following CDC guidelines, we request our audience members do not attend Seattle Rep performances or events if you have COVID, are experiencing any COVID-related symptoms before the event begins, or if you have been exposed to COVID.

Seattle Rep and many area performance groups have joined together in requiring masks and vaccinations or a negative COVID-19 test for all attendees to its performances in order to ensure a safe and successful return of the Seattle arts scene.

What to Bring

You must bring the following with you to attend an in-person performance or event at Seattle Rep:

1. Vaccine or Negative Test Documentation

Children under the age of 12 who are unvaccinated, and any others who are unvaccinated or cannot prove vaccination status, must instead provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the performance start time. Self-reported negative test results that are not from a test provider, a laboratory, or a health care provider cannot be accepted.

The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination:

  • Vaccination card (which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered)
  • A photo of a vaccination card as a separate document
  • A photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device
  • Documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider electronic health record or state Immunization Information System record (like the Washington State Department of Health Digital Verification Record)

The following are acceptable as proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result administered within 72 hours of your performance start time or a negative COVID-19 antigen test administered within 24 hours of the performance start time (anyone who is not fully vaccinated or cannot prove vaccination status):

  • Printed document (from the test provider or laboratory).
  • An email or text message displayed on a phone or electronic device from the test provider or laboratory. The information provided should include name of person tested, type of test performed, and date the test was administered.

You can show digital or printed documentation of results from one of the following:

  • a negative FDA-approved molecular test (also called a PCR test) administered by a provider within the previous 72 hours, or
  • a negative FDA-approved antigen test (also called a rapid test) 


2. Masks

Masks will be required for patrons and staff at all Seattle Rep performances and events for the 2021/22 season, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be required for all Seattle Rep attendees at all times in the venue, except while actively eating or drinking in designated spaces. We strongly recommend and encourage the wearing of highly effective masks such as N95, KN95, or KF94. 

Photo ID is no longer required to enter Seattle Rep.

Please note that Seattle Rep does not keep proof of vaccination on file. Patrons must show proof of vaccination or negative test result upon arrival at each performance or event attended.

Recommended: Turn on Washington Exposure Notifications - WA Notify

WA Notify (also known as Washington Exposure Notifications) is a free tool that works on smartphones to alert users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19 without sharing any personal information. It is completely private and doesn’t know who you are or track where you go. We highly recommend you enable this tool on your smartphone before attending the theater.

Tickets & Seating Updates


We are currently selling 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.

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.
