Players Guild of Dearborn Health and Safety Policy

We are excited to announce the return of the Magic of Live Theatre to the Players Guild of Dearborn.

Throughout its 94-year history, the Players Guild has been committed to providing a safe, fun and welcoming atmosphere for all of our members, loyal patrons and audience members.  We’re excited and grateful to return to live, in-person theatre, and we want to do our part to make sure that live theatre not only returns but thrives. 

Every institution is struggling with how best to completely reopen and yet manage the challenge that comes with doing it during a pandemic. Theatre, by design, is a shared experience. Audience members reacting in real time to actors performing live onstage. In order to accomplish this successfully the Players Guild is committed to doing that as safely as possible.

The Players Guild of Dearborn is committed to the safety and well-being of our members and patrons. The Players Guild will adhere to the following protocols and policies to operate in the safest, most responsible way possible. These protocols and policies are in accordance with the latest CDC guidelines, as well as all federal, state, county, city and other scientific data. As new information regarding the spread of COVID-19 becomes available each day, The Players Guild is committed to adapting our policies and procedures to keep all who enter our doors safe. 

At this time, all those attending a performance must: 

Wear a properly fitted mask at all times while inside the building, regardless of vaccination status.

  • Proof of Vaccination or negative Covid test is no longer required to attend a performance. However, masks are required for all patrons, members, and staff in the building before, during and after performances. Only actors performing on stage will be permitted to be unmasked. Masks must be worn over the mouth and nose at all times.
  • We are asking actors, musicians, audiences, and all members to monitor their health and stay home if they are exhibiting any Covid and/or flu-like symptoms. By entering the theater, you are agreeing that you are not sick and have not had direct contact with anyone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 10 days or exhibits symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Please note, guests who do not comply with these policies will be denied entry to the theater.

We have put the following protections in place:

  • Vaccinations are mandated for all members who are involved with the current production or other Guild activities and other persons working in our building.
  • Flexible Ticketing Policies: All tickets are refundable and exchangeable up to the day of the performance. If a patron is not feeling well or feels they may have come in contact with Covid-19, call the box office and arrange an exchange or refund.
  • Hand sanitation stations throughout the theatre space.
  • All surfaces in the theater, lobby and box office are cleaned and disinfected regularly including before and between all performances.
