Ticket Holder Requirements

For all Charles R. Wood Theater Events: all Ticket Holders are required to show proof of a completed COVID-19 vaccination (completed 14 prior to the event date) by way of Original COVID-19 Vaccination Card, A Photo or Photo-Copy of COVID-19 Vaccination Card or NYS Excelsior Pass along with a valid photo ID before entering the theater. Wearing a mask is strongly encouraged but not enforced. 

Children under age 12 that are not yet eligible to have a completed COVID-19 Vaccination may attend events by wearing a mask throughout. 

All patrons must check in at the Box Office before entering the theater to confirm their completed pre-show waiver. An electronic waiver will be e-mailed to you within 48 hours of your event date in which you may enter your guest’s name and phone number for contact tracing purposes. All members of your party are required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and may upload it electronically in this waiver or show it at the Box Office. Should you be unable to complete the form electronically, paper forms will be available for you at the Box Office. To save time at the door, we ask that you please complete the form electronically, at minimum with your guest’s name.

If you have previously attended an event where proof of vaccination was required, we will have your name on a roster of pre-screened patrons. The electronic form will allow you to note this for us to confirm we have your information on file and whether or not you will be attending with the same guest(s).


Should the Ticket Holder become ill prior to their event,the Ticket Holder and their entire party must stay home and not attend an event. In this case, a credit will be issued to the Ticket Holder’s OvationTix account to attend a future event.

For the safety of all Ticket Holders, there will be no late seating at any events. Ticket Holders who arrive after the performance has begun will be denied entry without a refund. The performance will not begin until all Ticket Holders have been screened and entered into the seating area.

Should the Ticket Holder be found to be in violation of any of the requirements named in these terms and conditions, on signage on the premises or made law by state, local or federal governments, the Ticket Holder may be asked to leave the premises without a refund.
