Updated COVID Safety Measures (May 2022)


Subject to change
Last updated April 2022

The Barley Sheaf Players (BSP) continue to monitor and follow guidelines and recommendations from the Chester County Health Department. We are committed to meeting or exceeding procedures from national, state, and local officials, and our COVID safety practices and policies are continually being refined to ensure that our theater is as safe, clean, and comfortable an experience as we can provide for everyone. As circumstances change, the Board of Directors will update our members and guests.


All members involved in the production are fully vaccinated and have been so throughout the rehearsal process. While on stage, cast members will perform without masks. Everyone involved in the production is encouraged to distance as much as possible backstage, in dressing rooms, and in the cast waiting room.


Air-flow Procedures and Sanitation Maintenance:

* The HVAC recirculation system will remain on
* Exterior doors will be open before, after, and during intermission(s)
* All restrooms will be cleaned thoroughly prior to each performance
* High-touch areas will be sanitized
* Hand sanitizers and wipes are stationed throughout the theater

House Staff (Box Office and Ushers):

* Will be fully vaccinated.
* Will be encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask.
* Will have minimal contact with audience members.

Audience Members:

* Will be asked for ID and proof of full vaccination prior to entering the building. This is now mandatory since the size of the theater does not accommodate seating audience members at a sufficient distance from cast, staff, or each other. A copy of one's vaccination card saved on a phone is acceptable if the original is not available.

* Should retain their ticket throughout the performance as tickets will be confirmation of vaccination status. This must be an official Barley Sheaf ticket obtained at the box office upon entering the building, not a printout or receipt.

* Must be masked at all times while in the building, regardless of vaccination status.

* Masks will be available at the box office window for those who wish to use them.
