Dear Friends,

Rehearsals for our first show of Season 37 are under way, and we couldn’t be more excited to experience live theater with you once again!

In welcoming you back to The Gamm, our top priority remains the well-being of our audiences, performers, staff, and volunteers as well as protecting our industry as a whole. To that end, we will regularly update our health and safety protocols to ensure the most joyful and low-risk return possible to your theater home.

In light of the spike in the delta variant of COVID-19, and based on CDC guidelines, state mandates, and Actors’ Equity Association requirements, our current guidelines are as follows:

For performances through October 24, 2021, guests will need to be masked as well as fully vaccinated (or provide a verifiable negative COVID-19 test result) in order to be seated. Proof of vaccination or testing must be presented at time of entry (e.g. your paper/electronic card or RI Department of Health test result). Policies for future performances will be reviewed and updated according to the latest health data and trends.

“Fully vaccinated” means your performance date is:

  • at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or

  • at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID-19 vaccine

Guests who are unvaccinated (including children under 12) must provide proof of at least one of the following:

  • negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or

  • negative COVID-19 antigen “rapid” test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time

Failure to comply with The Gamm’s health and safety guidelines will result in forfeiture of admittance.

For all guests:

  • Masking will be required for all in attendance except while actively eating or drinking.

  • Please consider mitigating risk factors before the event, and after you leave. While vaccinated people are much less likely to become very sick from COVID-19, recent data has shown some vaccinated people experiencing “breakthrough” infections.

  • If you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms (fever, sore throat, chills, cough, shortness of breath, congestion, nausea, or vomiting), please do not attend your ticketed performance. You may contact the box office to reschedule. If you are unable to attend a different performance of the same show, your ticket may be donated back to The Gamm as a tax-deductible contribution.

Other ways The Gamm is committed to your health and safety:

  • Our staff, performers, and volunteers are all fully vaccinated.

  • We have adopted contactless mobile ticket scanning to reduce physical touchpoints.

  • Face masks are available for those who require them.

  • We have installed air filters in our lobby, theater spaces, dressing rooms, and offices.

  • Our HVAC system has been serviced and upgraded, as required by Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States.

  • Drinks only (not food) will be allowed in the theater. You may enjoy food and drink in the lobby.

  • Hand sanitizers are available in common spaces, and enhanced cleaning protocols are being implemented.

Thank you for your unending support and cooperation. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We are counting the days until we reopen and look forward to seeing as many patrons as possible for our long-awaited return to the stage!

Amy Gravell, Managing Director

The Gamm Theatre COVID-19 protocols remain subject to change. Any changes will be communicated to ticket holders in advance of their performance.
