COVID-19 Protocol

For the safety of our artists, staff, volunteers and this community, we will be requiring proof of fully vaccinated patrons, staff, artists and crew for admittance to all shows at The State Theatre of Ithaca until further notice.  Results from a negative COVID test will NOT be accepted for entry for individuals over the age of twelve.  In addition, masks are required to be worn at all times while at the venue and in any common areas.  You may pull your mask down when actively eating or drinking only.

Please bring your vaccination card (or a photo of it) and/or your NYS Excelsior Pass, along with a corresponding state or federal ID for entry.   Children under the age of 12 may attend the concert if they provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 48 hours prior to when doors open.

As a responsible business, it is our duty to protect the health of our staff, performers and patrons in our iconic and historic indoor space.  We encourage anyone who has yet to be vaccinated to get their shots as soon as possible. You can find a vaccination site near you at:

Thanks for continuing to do your part and please stay safe.
