COVID-19 Safety Measures

​The Fringe Theatre will be following the mask advisory set by the Massachusetts Department of Health:

Effective May 15, 2022: A fully vaccinated individual should wear a mask indoors if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask indoors.

Safety Measures
The Fringe Theatre carefully monitors CDC guidelines for COVID-19 on a regular basis. We will continue to update procedures and protocols and encourage you to visit our website for updated information prior to our performances.

Cast and Crew Members
Vaccination is required for all cast members ages 5 and up.
 Masks during rehearsals are optional for cast members who are vaccinated and highly recommended for those who are not. Our staff is vaccinated and will continue to wear masks during rehearsals. We encourage our vaccinated cast members do the same for the safety of all involved in the production. 

During performances, vaccinated cast members will be unmasked while on stage but continue to wear a mask while back/off-stage. Cast members who are ineligible for vaccination at this time are highly encouraged to wear a mask on-stage and off-stage.

Thank you for your patience and kindness as we navigate these stranger than usual times. It has been quite a year, but we are headed in the right direction and we are looking forward to heading there together!
