As Vashon Opera prepares to present its first in-person event since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the following protocols are in place to ensure a safe environment for our audience, the artists involved in the production, our Vashon Opera volunteers and the staff at Vashon Center for the Arts.

We join many other performing arts organizations across the region in requiring both masks and proof of vaccination for entry to the Kay White Hall at Vashon Center for the Arts. As with the Seattle Symphony, Seattle Opera, Edmonds Center for the Arts, Pacific Northwest Ballet, The 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT Theatre, Seattle Rep, Village Theatre, and more, we strive to ensure a safe environment for our audiences.

Vashon Opera’s mask & vaccination policy

Vashon Opera and the Vashon Center for the Arts will require audience members to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to entering the Kay White Hall. These policies are in effect for the performances of Cavalleria Rusticana on November 5 and 7 and any open rehearsal.

Mask policy

Masks are required at all times in the Kay White Hall regardless of a person’s vaccination status. This requirement recognizes the recent delta variant surge as well as state and federal requirements.

Vaccination policy

Audience members are required to provide proof of vaccination (or proof of a negative COVID-19 test as outlined below).

Acceptable proof of vaccination:

  • Vaccination card (with name of person vaccinated, the type of vaccine that was provided and the date the last dose was administered)
  • An electronic photo of the person’s vaccine card stored on a smart phone
  • Documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider electronic health record or state Immunization Information System record.
  • Matching photo ID

Proof of negative COVID-19 test result (accepted in lieu of proof of vaccination):

  • Children 12 and under and people with a medical or religious exemption that prevents vaccination must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance date.

Thank you for helping us do all we can to protect and provide a healthy and safe environment for our audiences to enjoy our wonderful opera.

Ticket refunds

Ticket holders unable to meet our vaccination (or testing) and mask requirements or who are not ready to attend an opera performance in person due to the pandemic may request a ticket refund.
