Marcus Performing Arts Center Reopening


We Care About Your Safety:


The health and safety of all our audience members, staff, volunteers, resident groups, and visiting shows continues to be the Marcus Center’s highest priority. As we look forward to reopening our doors, we are dutifully monitoring all CDC guidelines and best practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to enhancing our safety plan and implementing new measures throughout the building and grounds to create a safe environment while welcoming guests back.



Contactless Ticketing -The Box Office and House staff will be taking measures to limit contact as much as possible, including moving to an all digital ticketing system, contactless scanning, and patrons being seated 6 feet apart at events.

Hand Hygeine - Hand sanitizer stations are positioned throughout the building for your convenience.

Healthy Team - All employees and vendors are required to sign off on a health check before entering the building, as well as wear masks at all times and frequently wash their hands during shifts.

HVAC Upgrade – Our recently installed state-of-the-art HVAC system continually introduces outside air into every inch of the building while doing a full air turnover every 20 minutes, all while maintaining comfortable temperatures for our guests.

Safe Parking - The Marcus Center Parking Structure will utilize self-payment kiosks at all gates in order to limit person-to-person contact. Parking Staff will wear masks and gloves at all times and will disinfect kiosks after each transaction.

Sanitation - Our staff will deep-clean after every performance, including santiation of all touchable surfaces using EPA-approved cleaning agents and electrostatic disinfectants.
