Live entertainment has returned to Orange County, and South Coast Metro is home to some of the most exciting venues that offer live music, theatre and other performances. Below you will find safety and health updates, such as vaccination and mask requirements for live performances at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, South Coast Repertory, and Pacific Symphony.

 

Segerstrom Center for the Arts

Safety & Health Update

As we welcome you back to Segerstrom Center for the Arts, our most important goal is to create an environment in which all of our audiences, artists, volunteers, students, and staff feel safe and protected, while reconnecting with the art and culture we all know and love — and have missed.

  • Our updated COVID-19 policy requires ticket holders to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 to attend all indoor performances and events at Segerstrom Center for the Arts. “Fully vaccinated” means your performance is at least 14 days after your final vaccine dose. To enter the theatre, please bring proof of vaccination, either your physical vaccination card, a picture of your vaccination card, or a digital vaccination record. Most California residents may request a digital vaccination record at myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov
  • Those who are under age 12 and anyone without proof of being fully vaccinated must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours (3 days) prior to entering the theatre.
  • Masks are required at all times for all patrons and visitors regardless of vaccination status in all indoor spaces at Segerstrom Center.
  • Performance ticket holders who do not comply with these policies will not be admitted.

This policy is in effect immediately for all indoor performances and will be re-assessed on an ongoing basis. Our health and safety protocols have been informed by infectious diseases experts at the University of California, Irvine to ensure adherence to the principles for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention. We’ve partnered with the industrial hygiene firm TRC to review our protocols and campus cleaning service provider ABM, that is administering Enhanced Clean™ in all our buildings.  We have also used CDC recommendations as well as guidelines from the State of California to create our reopening policies and procedures.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts asks our audiences to join us in providing the safest space possible for all coming together as we raise the curtain. The show will go on!
