Hennepin Theater Trust joined the list of most theaters and entertainment venues in Twin Cities on Wednesday in requiring that vaccine-eligible guests aged 12 and over attending any performance in the Orpheum, State and Pantages theaters be required to provide proof of vaccination. Children 11 and under will not need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
People 12 years of age or older who need accommodation for the vaccine requirement because of a medical reason or sincere religious belief that prevents vaccination may present proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within 72 hours before the event or a negative antigen test performed within 24 hours before the event, according to an HTT press release.

All invited members of the public are required to wear a face mask securely covering their mouth and nose in the room (except when eating or drinking in designated areas).
The first live show in one of the HTT theaters since the pandemic closed is Toad the Wet Sprocket at the Pantages on September 9.
The vaccination policy for all HTT theaters is currently expected to continue until the end of the year. For more details, visit hennepintheatretrust.org.
HTT joins the main theaters of Twin Cities, the Guthrie, the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, the Cowles Center and Orchestra Hall.
