All children between the ages of 2 and 12 will be asked to wear masks at all times if they are physically able.

Acceptable evidence of vaccination for SummerStage shows include proof of final Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna or WHO-approved vaccination using the CLEAR app, the NYS Excelsior Pass, NYC Covid Safe app, a physical/photo of CDC vaccination card, or EU digital pass, accompanied by a government-issued photo identification. Guests must show that their final dose of vaccine was received at least 14 days prior to the show date.
In addition, masks are required upon entry to the venue and their continued use is strongly encouraged for all guests for the duration of the performance, as is physical distance.
