We are thrilled to welcome patrons back to the Hangar Theatre’s indoor performances! Our community’s health and well being is our top priority. To ensure the safest and most enjoyable experience during your visit, we have established the following COVID Safety Plan (revised April 26, 2022), in effect until 5/31/2022. Please continue to check this page for updates.

Effective immediately: Audience members ages 5 and older must be fully vaccinated, show proof of vaccination and valid government ID. Masks are strongly encouraged inside the lobby, restrooms, and theatre space. Proof of vaccination will be required to enter the building and attend performances. Your proof of vaccination must show it has been at least 14 days after having completed a vaccine series. At this time, results from a negative COVID test will NOT be accepted for entry for individuals (over the age of five).

Acceptable forms of Proof of Vaccination:

  • NY State Excelsior Pass
  • Clear App
  • Photocopy or photo on your phone 

Children under the age of 5: May attend the indoor performances if they provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 48 hours prior to when doors open. Rapid tests and other antigen tests will NOT be accepted. For information about PCR tests available in Tompkins County, visit the  Tompkins County Health Department website.

Additionally, Hangar Theatre will continue to follow safety procedures already in place:
