Updated: September 23, 2021

We are committed to ensuring that you have an exceptional performance experience, with confidence in the policies and procedures designed for a safe environment for all.


To ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our patrons, staff and artists, The Broad Stage and Santa Monica College are requiring guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and to wear masks at all times. This policy applies to all performances, whether indoors or outdoors. 

"Fully vaccinated” means your first visit is at least 2 weeks after your final vaccine dose. The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination: 

  • Vaccination card (which includes the name of the person vaccinated, type of COVID-19 vaccine provided, and date the last dose was administered, which must be at least two weeks prior to the event date) 

  • A photo of the attendee’s vaccination card as a separate document 

  • A photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device 

  • Documentation of full vaccination from a healthcare provider 

  • A digital vaccination record. All California residents may request a digital vaccination record at
  • The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health requires all guests, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks inside the theater. Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and under your chin. The following are prohibited: Masks with exhalation valves; masks made of loosely woven fabrics; scarves, buffs, bandanas, gaiters, and face shields alone (inadequate protection). Masks will be available upon request.

Guests who require an exemption from vaccination or will be bringing children under the age of 12 must present proof of a negative PCR Covid test administered at least 2 days prior to your performance date. 

For any questions about this policy, please contact Patron Services at or call via 310.434.3200. 

NOTE: This policy is subject to changes at any time, in accordance with fluctuating local, state and federal guidelines. Please watch your email for our current policy before your scheduled performance date.
