COVID Policies and Info

Asheville Community Theatre is abiding by all state and local guidelines in regard to COVID-19.

Asheville Community Theatre (ACT) Covid Policy – revised July 1, 2022.

Asheville Community Theatre will look to the guidelines of the State of North Carolina, the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners, and the CDC as a baseline for creating a safe environment during the pandemic. This policy will be reviewed and may be modified at any time.

Thank you for helping Asheville Community Theatre to maintain a safe space in our community!

When Seeing A Performance:

Masks are highly recommended, but not required, while in the Mainstage Auditorium and in the ACT Lobby.

Other actions we are taking to remain safe:

  • HVAC systems in the Mainstage theatre and lobby have been inspected by multiple engineers who have ensured that we have proper ventilation for public performances; improved indoor air quality featuring increased air flow, MERV 13 filters, fresh air ventilation throughout building, and installation of o-zone free Atmos BPI Filtration, a bipolar ionizing filtration system.
  • Emphasis on paperless ticketing at the Box Office with PDF and mobile tickets available for every ticket purchased online or in person.
  • Concessions are closed for the time being. No food or drink allowed inside the theatre auditorium.

When Volunteering:

Cast and crew members: We recommend cast and crew members wear masks at all times, but masks are no longer required in the building. Proof of vaccination is not required to participate as a cast or crew member at ACT.

All other volunteers: Volunteers will not be required to wear a mask while in the theatre or lobby. Wearing a mask is still recommended.

When Enrolling in a Class or Camp:

Masks are optional for Tanglewood Summer Camp as schools are no longer requiring masks.

Masks are not required for all adult classes.
