Health & Safety Protocols

Q: What kinds of health and safety measures are in place?

A: ATC returns to live theatre this fall as a fully vaccinated company – from our actors and designers to staff and volunteers. We put our artists and audiences at the heart of all we do, and intend to be as careful as possible with your health. Therefore, we have implemented COVID Safety Protocols. 

Until further notice, masks will be required for all patrons. Additionally, proof of vaccination status or negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of your show time. This season patrons will also have the option to exchange tickets to watch the production in the comfort of their own home. 

For more details about our Safety Protocols, click here.

ATC will continue to monitor recommendation from the CDC, state and local government as we work to provide a safe environment for our guests.


Q: What if I’m unready to return to the theatre? 

A: For ticket holders who are unready to return to the theatre, all Mainstage plays will be professionally recorded with three cameras on Opening Night. This means that whether you’re in the theatre or at home, your tickets let you experience the shows. More information will be forthcoming for how you can opt to watch ATC Shows On Demand instead of in the theatre.

Q: What should I wear to the theatre? 

A: We have no official “dress code” for attending plays at Arizona Theatre Company. Typically, patrons choose dress/casual attire for non-Opening Night performances and formal attire for Opening Nights. However, we’d rather have a patron come in jeans and sweatshirt than not come at all out of concern for how they are dressed.


Q: What time should I arrive at the theatre? What if I’m late? 

A: We recommend patrons arrive at least 30 minutes before the show to avoid last-minute lines at the Box Office. Large groups should allow more time before the show to distribute tickets. We recommend an hour before the performance. 

If you are running late, keep in mind that the Box Office windows stay open until about 15 minutes after curtain. If you arrive by that time, you can pick up your tickets there. If not, see the house manager in the lobby. He/she will have your tickets. The ushers will take you into the house and have you stand at the back until the next seating break.


Q: Can I bring children to the theatre? 

A: Children ages 5 and up are welcome to attend if you purchase them a ticket. Children under 5 are not allowed in the theatre.


Q: What number should I give the babysitter? 

A: You can leave the number for the Herberger Theater Center House Manager: (602) 254-7399. Remember to also leave your seat locations with your sitter so we can locate you more easily.


Ticket Information

Q: What if I cannot find my ticket? 

A: Just come to the Box Office, give them your name, and let them know you lost your ticket. They can issue you a location pass for your seat(s). They may ask to see an ID.


Q: Where do I pick up my tickets? Do I need to show an ID or Credit Card? 

A: Pick up your tickets at the Herberger Theater Center Box Office. An hour before the show, certain windows are designated “Will Call.” We don’t usually require an ID. Normally, all you will need is the first and last name that the tickets are held under. However, it’s also helpful to have the ticket order number and/or credit card number associated with your order.


Q: What if I’ve had last-minute change of plans and cannot get to the theatre today? 

A: If you find that you are unable to attend a performance at the last minute, we ask that you let us know and we will give your ticket to a student who may be waiting for rush tickets for that show. We cannot, however, issue a tax credit for tickets donated less than 24 hours before the scheduled performance.


Q: What if I cannot attend a performance for which I already have tickets? 

A: You can donate your tickets back to ATC as a tax-deductible donation (we will re-sell your tickets) if you notify us at least 24 hours in advance. Please call the box office at least 24 hours before your show. We will make a note on your account and send you a letter acknowledging your contribution.
