COVID-19 Protocol Updates
May 19, 2022
Currently, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Saint Louis County Department of Public Health, and the City of St. Louis Department of Public Health strongly recommend wearing a face mask when in crowded indoor settings.
In accordance with these recommendations, STAGES St. Louis strongly recommends that all visitors wear a face mask during all performances of our 2022 Season.
We will continue to monitor guidance from the CDC as well as all local, state, and federal health and safety authorities, as well as the regulations of all unions with whom we are associated, and update patrons to any changes which may occur.
• Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the KPAC on both the orchestra and mezzanine levels.
• High touch surface areas will be cleaned and sanitized between all performances.
• Plexiglass barriers have been installed at our Box Office.
• All STAGES and KPAC team members will wear face masks at all times.

As we continue to see COVID-19 impact our community and our world, STAGES St. Louis is committed to the safety of our STAGES family: our patrons, performers, staff, students, and community.
As part of a collaborative partnership with numerous other performing arts organizations in the region, STAGES St. Louis will begin requiring all Kirkwood Performing Arts Center (KPAC) patrons to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result (within 72 hours of your performance date). This policy will begin with the opening of our final production of the 2021 Season, JERSEY BOYS, on Friday, September 24. It will remain in place through December 31, 2021. It will also apply to all STAGES St. Louis events, including our annual Applause Gala (November 5, 2021) and An Evening with Liz Callaway (December 18, 2021).
We will also continue to require face masks to be worn over the nose and mouth – when not eating or drinking – while you are at the KPAC. Prolonged periods of mask removal are not permitted for eating or drinking – masks must be worn between bites and sips. Bandanas, face shields only, and neck gaiters are not permitted. Patrons arriving without appropriate face coverings will be provided with a disposable mask.
When arriving at the KPAC, we ask that you have your driver’s license or photo ID in hand, along with one of the following:
- Your COVID-19 Vaccination Card
- A photo of your COVID-19 Vaccination Card (on your phone is acceptable)
- A negative COVID-19 test result (within 72 hours of your performance date)
STAGES Staff Members will be waiting for you at both entrances to the KPAC and will check your photo ID, and your vaccination card or negative COVID-19 test result.
If you are not vaccinated, do not have a negative test result, or are not able to provide this information to us at the time of your performance, we will gladly exchange your ticket for a later date or provide a full ticket refund.
We thank you for your continued support of STAGES St. Louis, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

With this in mind, and based upon the requirements from our Actor’s Union, we will be requiring all patrons and staff members to wear masks in the lobby, theatre, and all other areas of The Kirkwood Performing Arts Center.
We want to extend our utmost thanks to each and every one of you for your ongoing support and dedication.
