We are pleased to announce that effective March 11, 2022, New Spire Arts will lift its vaccination/proof of negative Covid test requirement to attend performances. At this time, we will also be lifting our mask requirement, however, masks are still strongly encouraged.
We will continue monitoring conditions and recommendations and will update our policies as circumstances require. Some casts and artists may have specific contractual details that require either vaccine and/or mask policies be reinstated for an event, so please check our website for any updates before attending a show.
We hope to see you soon!
