UPDATED COVID-19 REQUIREMENTS
Dear Subscribers and Patrons of Candlelight,
We hope this letter finds you healthy and enjoying the fall season. After much discussion between the Staff and the Board of Candlelight it has been decided to require proof of vaccinations or a recent negative Covid-19 test for all audience members starting with our production of A Christmas Carol by Candlelight opening on November 20.
The new policy, which has been in place for all staff and performers since our re-opening in April, follows in the footsteps of the requirements already in place for all Broadway productions as well as for those in other cities throughout the country including Philadelphia and Wilmington. Although we understand that this decision may involve some initial inconvenience for our theatergoers, we are determined to ensure that it be as minimal as possible. To that end we will compile a list of all patrons who have provided proof of vaccination so there will be no need for you to repeat the process a second time.
For those who have not been fully vaccinated (14 days have passed since your second shot), or for those who have chosen to forego receiving a vaccination, we would require proof of a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the date you are scheduled to attend. At this time a home test would not be accepted. Tests that would be accepted include the Covid-19 PCR test (within 72 hours of the attendance date) or a Covid-19 antigen test (within 6 hours of arrival); both of these tests are free and readily available at testing sites as well as at Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and CVS locations. You have the option of showing proof of vaccination, along with a valid I.D., in a number of ways:
- Electronic copy – scan your vaccination card and email to the theatre
- Photocopy – make a copy of your vaccination card and mail to the theatre or bring with you
- Photo – take a photo of your vaccination card and present upon arrival.
- In person – either by stopping at the theater during Box Office hours or presenting the card upon arrival.
Our goal, as always, is to provide our audience with the safest environment possible and we feel that this added step, in conjunction with the extensive measures already taken by Candlelight, will help to make your evening with us the healthiest it can be. Thank you for your understanding and we hope that you feel, as we do, that this action will not only add to a safer environment but is also the right thing to do. With each of us doing our part for the health of all of us we will reach that light at the end of the tunnel.
Our sincere thanks for all of your support over the years and for your continued patronage. Words cannot adequately express our appreciation.
The Staff and Board of The Candlelight Theatre.
