The United Theatre takes the health and safety of our community very seriously and is committed to protecting its staff, artists, students, and patrons.
Our current health and safety protocols are posted below. We will update and revise our policies and actions as the situation warrants, based on the most up-to-date guidance from government agencies and experts.
AS OF AUGUST 25, 2021
The United Theatre joins eight other Rhode Island performance venues and organizations in a partnership to provide for the safety of their audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers, based on current scientific evidence and best practices around the country.
Organizations included in this effort include Festival Ballet Providence, Gamm Theatre, Island Moving Company, Providence Performing Arts Center, Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School, Trinity Repertory Company, The United Theatre, Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, and Wilbury Theatre Group.
Effective immediately and until further notice: All patrons regardless of vaccination status must wear masks over their nose and mouth at all times while inside the venue (unless actively eating or drinking). Details may be revisited or revised based on CDC guidance and the evolving circumstances of the pandemic. All patrons attending concerts and live performances at The United (not including film screenings) must either show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (at least 14 days have passed since the final dose), or proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken in the prior 72-hours, or proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken in the prior 6-hours. Please visit the websites of the other individual venues for any additional restrictions or details.
Masks for staff, artists, students, and guests are currently required when moving through the buildings and may be removed for staff only when at their work space, socially distanced from others. Our spaces and high-touch surfaces are being regularly cleaned and disinfected. In addition, there are numerous hand sanitizer stations throughout, and we encourage social distancing in all of our spaces.
