COVID-19 PROCEDURES AS OF JULY 1, 2022
Tickets are emailed to patrons to limit the buildup of traffic in our entryway. Tickets can be presented on a cellphone from a confirmation email or they can be printed at home. For patrons that cannot access either of these options, we will be able to look up your tickets at the Box Office.
Please have your tickets ready and on hand when arriving at the doors of the theatre. Patrons should arrive with their whole group, ready to be seated.
There is a 10-minute intermission for the audience to use the restrooms and head outside to the Sullivan Plaza for fresh air.
Near West Theatre will communicate updates via text messaging and emails. Please be sure to add email@example.com to your email contacts to make sure you do not miss any important announcements.
