Open since 1955, the Masquers Playhouse is a volunteer, non-profit, community theatre that produces and stages affordable plays and other live theatrical events for the entertainment and cultural enhancement of Richmond and the greater Bay Area. It provides a creative outlet for non-AE theatre people, exercises sound financial management, encourages audience participaton and involvement, and seeks to foster a strong community identity.
Here are somethings that will help you enjoy your Masquers experience!
Patrons and Theatre-goers
We no longer require proof of vaccination of our patrons, and you are no longer required to wear masks in the theater. We do encourage you to wear masks for your own protection and peace of mind. Free masks are available in the lobby.
Cast and Crew
Cast, crew members, and lobby crew are required to wear masks at all times except when acting onstage.
We encourage cast and crew members to test for COVID weekly using their own home antigen tests. There is an air purifier in the dressing corridor. Please use the back porch for social distancing. Frequent hand washing is recommended.
If you test positive for COVID, stay home. If you are sick, feel sick, or feel like you are getting sick , stay home. If you come into close contact with COVID and become symptomatic, stay home.
If your illness is COVID-related, schedule a laboratory PCR test at least three days after you first notice your symptoms. Do not do it before three days. If your laboratory PCR test is positive, you will be allowed back when all your symptoms are gone and you receive a subsequent negative home antigen test, usually 5 to 10 days after your first symptoms. If you test negative, depending on your non-COVID-related illness, you may be allowed back immediately. If your non-COVID-related illness is contagious, stay home until all symptoms are gone. If it is “just a cold,” stay home. We don’t want that to spread either
