Shared Code of Conduct

As of January 15, 2022 (Subject to change)

We hold the health of one another in our hands.
Vaccinations are extremely effective and the best tool we have to keep one another safe.


These protocols apply to all events at the Theatres of Emerson College:

Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre, Emerson Paramount Center (Robert J. Orchard Stage,  Jackie Liebergott Black Box, and Bright Family Screening Room), and Tufte Performance and Production Center (Semel Theater and Greene Theater)

These Protocols Apply To You And Each Member Of Your Party.

If you are booking tickets for others, please ensure they are aware of and agree to these protocols.

  1. I understand that I must present proof that I am fully vaccinated at the entrance to the venue to be permitted entry, as required by “B Together,” Boston’s updated vaccine requirement for certain indoor spaces. Proof of vaccination may be provided by presenting either a physical or digital version of one of the following: a CDC Vaccination Card, any official immunization record (including a letter or report from a health care provider, pharmacy, or vaccination site), or a COVID-19 vaccination verification app.

    The definition of “fully vaccinated” is determined by the City of Boston as follows:

    • By Jan. 15:  People aged 12 and older must show proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to enter.

    • By Feb. 15:  People aged 12 and older must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to enter (one dose of a one-dose series or two doses in a two-dose series).

    • By March 1:  Children ages 5 to 11 must show proof of at least one dose to enter.

    • By May 1:  All people ages 5 and older must show proof of full vaccination to enter (one dose of a one-dose series or two doses in a two-dose series).

  2. If feeling sick, experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or  having been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, I will stay home. Our box office will allow you to refund or exchange performance tickets at any time prior to the event. No one should come to the venue if they are not feeling well. 
  3. I will wear a well-fitting 3-ply face mask (N95s, KN95s, and surgical masks recommended), at all times when indoors at the theatre and understand that no gaiters, bandanas, or masks with vents are allowed. I understand that this is also required for all guests and staff, the only exception being for performers when they are on the stage. 
  4. I will refrain from eating or drinking in any indoor area of the theatre. All concessions in the venues have been discontinued until further notice. 
  5. I understand that if I am not abiding by any of the above guidelines, a staff member will ask that I comply.  If I am unwilling to do so, I will leave the theatre as instructed.

It is within our values to create a safe space for everyone, full stop. All staff at the Theatres of Emerson College are working to ensure the health and safety of all who are sharing these spaces. Maintaining our community’s health and safety requires the effort of all involved. By committing to this Shared Code of Conduct, you are not only protecting yourself, but fellow guests, artists, and staff. Please do all you can to help keep all of us safe. We cannot wait to see you at the theater! 



In addition to the protocols outlined in the Shared Code of Conduct, we have taken the following precautions to ensure that our venues provide the optimal environment for our guests.

  • Emerson College has installed HEPA filters and pre-filters with a MERV rating of 13 (hospital grade) in all the buildings. The ventilation is top-down, rather than a less-desired cross-ventilation system, meaning the air is supplied from above and falls toward the ground. Outside air is introduced at a minimum of 20% during cold and hot weather, and closer to 50% during more mild months. When air temperature is between 45-60 degrees and humidity less than 50%, we have the ability to introduce outside air at the rate of 100%.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the venues.
  • We are encouraging guests to choose digital tickets or mailed tickets as their delivery method to reduce lines at the box office prior to performances, and we feature contactless ticketing for venue entry with use of scanners.
  • All Emerson College community members (students, faculty and staff) are required to attest to vaccination to be on campus. Further, Emerson College community members are required to participate in weekly Covid testing to further assure safety.

Any prospective guest with questions or concerns about health safety protocols is encouraged to contact the Box Office. Representatives are available Tue-Sat, 12pm-6pm, by phone at 617-824-8400 or by email at
