Safety Guide

Letter sent Nov. 29, 2021

Dear Playhouse Patrons,

On behalf of the board of directors, staff, and volunteers, we are grateful to you for sharing a year of creative theatre.

Since summer 2020, The Playhouse has worked hard to keep our volunteers, audiences, and staff as safe as possible. As we open our holiday shows, we have made the decision to continue to remain vigilant.

  • Our performers, backstage technicians, and staff have all shared their vaccination status according to CDC recommendations.
  • We continue to honor our Governor’s directives not to require proof of vaccination for our audiences.
  • We will remain protective by requiring masks for all public events, which includes performances and classes. This requirement will remain in effect at least until Jan. 31, 2022, and will apply to all events in the building including The Sound of Music, 3-19, 2021; Final Act Ensemble’s Holiday Show, Dec. 14, 2021; and Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! The Musical!, our first family season show in the Kate Goldman Children’s Theatre space, Jan. 7-23, 2022.

We recognize that the continued requirement of masks may be an issue for you. We fully appreciate that you must do what makes you comfortable. We will gladly issue a refund to anyone who requests, without question. Please note that productions are available for streaming if you would like to experience a show from the safety of your own home.

Together, we have worked hard to ensure that live theatre can be presented in person. Someday we will all feel comfortable being in a theatre without masks. Until then, know that The Playhouse will always be your community theatre, serving the whole community with special stories that deserve to be told.

We can’t thank you enough for doing your part to help us keep theatre accessible to as many people in our community as possible.

Most gratefully,
David R. Kilpatrick
Executive Director
Des Moines Community Playhouse

Playhouse Additional Safety Practices

  • Volunteers and staff are required to wear masks at all times.
  • Tickets can be exchanged or refunded if guests are feeling unwell or have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By entering The Playhouse’s facilities, guests, volunteers, and staff voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

We have drawn upon the guidelines suggested by local, state, and federal agencies, experts, and associations. The Playhouse remains committed to monitoring the current recommendations, guidelines, and restrictions to which we are subject.
