The Anacostia Playhouse is joining our colleagues in the theater community in requiring proof of vaccination for indoor, in-person productions. This mandate will be in effect through the end of the year. Theatre Washington, the area’s alliance of theater organizations, has developed the following collective standards:* Audiences will be required to provide proof of vaccination to attend live, indoor performances.
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, hosting clients or employees, or providing students with a memorable experience, bring your group of 20 or more to any Anacostia Playhouse production and enjoy group benefits.
