Covid-19 Safety Protocols


The health and safety of our audience, artists, staff and volunteers is our top priority. To ensure our safety at Actors Theatre of Louisville, we require everyone to abide by the following protocols.  

These protocols are part of our ongoing efforts to maintain safe and welcoming environments, as well as a specific response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and are in compliance with CDC, state, and local guidance as well as requirements and recommendations from our collective bargaining partners. All protocols are subject to change as new information and best practices are updated.
