At Starlight Theatre, we're dedicated to making sure that our patrons, staff and performers are comfortable returning to our historic venue. Starlight is taking a number of additional precautions and adjustments to our policies and procedures to ensure the safest possible environment for everyone in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask that patrons be considerate of the safety of their fellow guests at all times so that everyone can have an enjoyable and safe experience at the theatre.
Starlight is closely monitoring federal, state and local guidelines and our policies and procedures will continue to evolve dependent on COVID-19 status at the time of each event.
All Starlight staff, including part time and full time employees, Ambassadors, volunteers and security personnel are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Following CDC guidelines and for the safety of all, we encourage patrons to receive the vaccine as well.
At Starlight, we’ve increased cleaning procedures throughout the venue—especially of high-touch points like doors, handrails and restrooms. We’ve also increased the number of hand-sanitizing stations, wipes and disinfectant available throughout the venue. Touchless faucets have been installed throughout the venue.
