Trinity Rep takes the health and safety of its community seriously, and is committed to protecting its staff, artists, students, and patrons. Our current health and safety protocols are posted below. We update and revise our policies and actions as the situation warrants. 

as of May 2024


The theater is protected by emergency lighting and sprinklers, and our staff are trained in CPR and first aid. In an emergency, please contact a staff member immediately.

Firearms and weapons are not allowed on the premises, except for credentialed local, state, and federal law enforcement officers with proper ID.

All bags are subject to search by security if deemed necessary.


Masked Matinees: To accommodate patrons who feel most comfortable in a fully masked environment, select matinees will require guests to wear masks. Masks must completely and tightly cover the nose and mouth. 

    At all other performances, masks are optional 

    Contagious Illness Exchange Policy: By attending Trinity Rep, patrons are certifying that they are free of contagious illness symptoms. If you are experiencing any contagious illness symptoms on the day of the performance or have been instructed to quarantine, please stay home. You may contact the Ticket Office at (401) 351-4242 to exchange your tickets.  

    Our Cleaning Protocols and Ventilation

    We regularly clean and disinfect our spaces and high-touch surfaces. Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are located throughout the facilities. We expect all staff, artists, students, and patrons to wash their hands. In 2018, funded by the Rhode Island Creative and Cultural Economy Bond, Trinity Rep completed a $1.9 million upgrade to the HVAC systems serving the Chace Theater and public spaces. Air filters in all of Trinity Rep’s facilities have been upgraded to MERV-13 where possible. Additional air purifiers have been added to most spaces that do not have the opportunity to open exterior windows.
