Entering the theatre
At the time of entry, all guests will need to show
proof of vaccination in the form of their CDC
vaccination card or a photo of the card, as well as
a government-issued photo ID. Minors will be able
to show either a non-driver’s license or a school
ID with photo. If this is not available, the minor
must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult who
can vouch for their identity.
A pre-check opportunity will be offered prior
to select performances and is highly
recommended for guests planning dinner or
other pre-event activities.
Unvaccinated guests may provide a negative
COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of
the performance time, or a negative COVID-19
antigen test taken within 24 hours of the
The Appell Center, in conjunction with the CDC and
the Pennsylvania Department of Health, continues
to strongly encourage all guests to wear masks,
regardless of vaccination status for the safety of all
who enter the facility. For guests under the age of
12 who are unable to be vaccinated, masks will be
required except while actively eating or drinking.
It is recommended that you do not bring any
bags with you in order to expedite entry. Bag
checks will still be mandatory and conducted by
our security team.
Metal (or plastic) rods will be used to search
each bag, and wiped down between searches.
Guests will be asked to open and hold their own
bags while they are being searched.
In the event an artist has merchandise available
for sale, it should be available pre- and post-show.
Guests are asked to practice social distancing as
much as possible while waiting in line.
In addition to these enhanced safety measures,
thorough deep clean/sanitation processes continue
throughout the Appell Center, including spraying of
seats with a concentrated disinfectant, wiping down
of all hard surfaces, door knobs, etc. with sanitizing
solution. HVAC filtration is provided by MERV-13
filters and systems are set to maximize the circulation
of fresh air into the theaters.
Concessions are available at both the Capitol and
Strand Theatres. All alcoholic beverages are sold in
reusable cups which must be purchased with your
first drink. Guests are encouraged to bring their cups
back to our concessions stands during future visits to
purchase drinks at the refill price. Non-Appell Center
cups will not be eligible for refills.
