HEALTH & SAFETY

We are delighted to be able to offer in-person shows again, while being protective of the health and welfare of our audiences, our staff and our actors.

Due to the high risk of transmission of the Delta variant of COVID in the Pioneer Valley and beyond, we are closely monitoring updates from our performance venue, as well as local, state, federal, and CDC policies and guidance.  Your safety is our key concern, and all steps possible will be taken to ensure your safe enjoyment of our shows. We’ll update this information as required. If you have any questions please email us, or call us at 413-768-7514.

WE REQUEST OF OUR AUDIENCE

REQUIRED:
  • Everyone who attends a Silverthorne event must show proof of full vaccination for COVID-19 (at least 2 weeks past 2nd shot of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or 2 weeks past single shot of J&J vaccine).
  • “Proof of vaccination” consists of a CDC vaccination card or a clear, legible copy or photo of a card.
  • Results from a negative COVID test will NOT be accepted for entry.
  • Please bring a state or federal ID in addition to your vaccination card.
  • All attendees will be required to wear face coverings while in the building except when eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Children under the age of 12, who can’t be vaccinated yet, may attend, but they must wear a mask at all times and show a negative test taken within the past 72 hours.
ENCOURAGED:
  • Plan to arrive a few minutes early to ensure a smooth and orderly flow through into the theater.
  • Have your proof of vaccine and a valid ID ready to show when you enter.
  • Bring a mask and a backup, just in case. We will provide a mask for patrons who lose or forget their masks.
  • We encourage anyone who has yet to be vaccinated to get their shots as soon as possible. More information on COVID-19 and vaccinations can be found at www.mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine

STOP COVID TRANSMISSION

If, in the last two weeks, you have experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, come into contact with anyone known to be COVID-19 positive, or been asked to quarantine by the state, your employer, or your school, you are instructed not to attend a show. If any of these apply to you and you have already purchased a ticket, please email us or call 413-768-7514.

OUR SAFETY MEASURES

  • Silverthorne’s cast, crew, staff, and volunteers are fully vaccinated.
  • Between performances we will be cleaning and sanitizing chairs and other audience areas, as well as rest rooms, bar tops and other high-touch areas.
  • Masks will be available at the box office, and hand sanitizer will be available at various places around the building.
  • A new geo-thermal ventilation system has been installed at Hawks & Reed, and services the show’s fourth floor venue, The Perch.
  • While we do not have the space to allow for social distancing between audience members, we will be reducing our seating capacity to make room for more spacing between seats and the stage.
  • There is a distance of at least 6 feet between audience and actors.
  • The actors are tested weekly.

These measures aim to ensure the safety of everyone – our patrons, artists, staff, and community.
