The local situation with COVID continues to evolve,
For the safety of everyone entering Center Stage Theater (audience and performers) must show proof of vaccination or a negative test. For the test a PCR test must have been taken within the last 72 hours and an antigen test within the last 24 hours.  There are no masks required for anyone.  We continue our other mitigation efforts including that our HVAC uses 100% fresh air and we are using MRV13 filters.

Our Box Office is back open, and you can use either e-tickets, print at home tickets or request Will Call tickets to be waiting for you at the Box Office. There are no social distancing requirements in place for seating. We are keeping in place our ventilation and air filtration mitigation efforts, and our generous use of hand sanitizer. The HVAC system for the theater is set to bring in 100% fresh air, we are using CDC recommended MERV-13 filters, the air is turned over 7.35 times an hour and we also have portable HEPA air purifiers (thank you to the Santa Barbara Foundation!). All of our staff are fully vaccinated and performers are either vaccinated or tested negative before performing.We have been welcoming back audiences now since April 30 and are so pleased to be back to full capacity and be able to see your beautiful faces! If you have any questions please email Executive Director Teri Ball at

All seating is general admission. For all performances there is no late seating once the performance begins. Please plan your arrival time accordingly.
