Ashland is committed to the safety of its artists, crew, volunteers and patrons. As such, we are currently enforcing  masking by everyone in the theater until Minnesota's positivity testing rate returns to below 5%. At that time, we are planning on allowing performers to unmask for rehearsals and performances if they are fully vaccinated. Testing is not currently required, but is being considered as a further requirement to keep our artists safe.
