Safety Guidelines & Procedures- April 2021
At the Pocket, we are doing our very best to protect the safety of our patrons, staff, and artists. Pocket Sandwich Theatre (PST) has developed new policies and procedures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These new guidelines were developed based on directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They also utilize policies that were adopted by other theaters across the United States.
Although we are happy to assist, all ticket purchases will be required to be done online. If you are feeling unwell, please don’t hesitate to contact our box office in advance to reschedule your visit for a later scheduled performance or a theater credit. Our box office number is 214-821-1860.
ALL PATRONS MUST ENTER THE THEATER EQUIPPED WITH AND WEARING A MASK. IF YOU DON'T BRING ONE WE WILL HAVE ONE AVAILABLE FOR YOU AT THE BOX OFFICE. MASK REGULATIONS WILL BE BASED ON A BY DATE AND BY SHOW BASIS. AT THIS TIME WE WILL CONTINUE TO REQUIRE THAT MASKS BE WORN UPON ARRIVAL AND WHENEVER YOU LEAVE YOUR SEATS.
WE CALL IT "THE POCKET MANDATE".
We have new reduced seating arrangements with plexiglass dividers between booths and distancing between floor group seating as well as the stage performers.
PST is fully equipped and will clean and disinfect the facility before and after every performance as well as having a weekly electrostatic spraying service, Enviro-Masters, which eliminates pathogens even in hidden and shadowed areas, an added reduction to the risk of cross-contamination.
