As Woolly prepares to return to live performances this fall, we wanted to share more information about what we have done and are doing to make your experience at Woolly as safe as possible. These policies are meant to keep audiences, staff, and artists as safe as possible from the spread of COVID-19. Policies are subject to change to be in line with recommendations from city and federal health officials and we will update our safety page as the situation develops.

Woolly Mammoth will no longer be requiring proof of vaccination for the 2022-23 season. Recent survey data suggests that over 90% of the theatregoing audience in the DMV is fully vaccinated. Our staff and artists are required to be fully vaccinated, and the cast regularly tests for COVID-19.

We ask that if you feel sick, please stay home, even if you have tested negative for COVID-19. We are happy to waive exchange fees for anyone who is feeling unwell to best protect our audience and team from illness.


Masks are required in the theatre throughout the performance. Masks are strongly recommended in our lobby spaces.


In a continued effort to reduce touchpoints, our programs will be both physical and digital. It will be linked in pre- and post-show emails for you to read ahead of time, as well as on the event page on our website.

Digital playbills also create a more accessible option for patrons with low vision and Woolly is committed to making our content accessible to all audience members.
