Our Goal: To create a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable environment for everyone. We ask that all audience members, regardless of vaccination status, adhere to the health and safety policies outlined below in order to allow for us all to return to live performances in the theater.
These policies are in place for the return of all in-person Penny Stamps Speaker Series events. If protocols change or evolve as new information becomes available, we will do our best to notify our audience by posting updates on our social media platforms and website, and by continuing to update this page.
Audience members who do not comply with these policies will not be admitted or may be asked to leave the theater. The safety of our students, staff, and the general public is our first priority. Our policies have been developed in consultation with the University of Michigan and with additional guidance from the State of Michigan and the CDC.
Proof of vaccination is no longer required to enter the theater as of March 14, 2022. If you are feeling unwell, please remain at home.
The Michigan Theater has implemented significant COVID safety measures to ensure the safety of all guests.
- An updated HVAC system
- Enhanced cleaning between performances
- Assignment of staff members as Pandemic Response Officers
- An established entry and exit plan
- Guided traffic flow
