Safety Guidelines & Procedures

 

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 PURCHASE AT THE FRONT DOOR FOR $1.00.  AT YOUR TABLE THEY CAN BE REMOVED FOR EATING AND DINING BUT YOU ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO WEAR THEM THROUGHOUT THE EVENING AND ABSOLUTELY WHENEVER YOU LEAVE YOUR SEATED AREA.

We made new reduced seating arrangements that conform to social distancing standards with plexiglass dividers and 6 feet of distancing between floor group seating. 

 

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.

We have equipped our air conditioning units with the highest-ranked and rated MERV filters for better filtering and air quality.

All of our kitchen staff and waitstaff will be wearing masks.  All patrons, staff, and performers will be temperature checked upon arrival.  Anyone showing any signs of illness will not be allowed to attend or work.

There are disinfection stations throughout the theater.
