Theatre Bristol COVID-19 Policy

Your safety is our priority. We are taking a cautious leap with our 2022 productions, keeping in mind how it affects our community and local hospitals. As a non-profit organization that receives a state project grant each year, we are unable to require vaccinations and masks. However, Theatre Bristol encourages vaccination, especially while Tennessee has high transmission risk and the fourth highest case count per capita.

In order to audition and participate in the production, you will need to present a negative COVID-19 test taken the same day as the audition/rehearsal. Alternatively, you may voluntarily provide proof of vaccination or proof of a current positive antibody test.

***Please wear a mask during your audition unless asked to remove it.***

Performers speak and sing in close proximity for extended periods of time. In order to keep the cast and crew healthy and make sure our production gets to the stage, vaccination is encouraged. Although the cast being exposed to COVID-19 is inevitable, vaccination is proven to reduce the risk, severity, and length of being infected. Unvaccinated cast members can seriously jeopardize the production.

The creative team, by their own volition, is vaccinated. Theatre Bristol devotes a great deal of time, energy, and money to each production and requests that our volunteers support that effort by being vaccinated.

Theatre Bristol cannot be held responsible for exposure to COVID-19.

These requirements are updated as more information becomes available.

If, at any point, the Theatre Bristol Board of Directors determines that it is not prudent to proceed with the production, the show will be cancelled.
