Please take a moment to read through these protocols before you come to the theater. Please understand these measures are in place for the safety and health of our patrons, employees and our community as a whole. We hope to continue providing beautiful memories and productions for as long as possible and these protocols will help us to do so.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation and please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
DO I NEED TO BE VACCINATED TO ATTEND A PERFORMANCE?
Yes. Due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases and our ever changing public health safety environment, all patrons of The John W. Engeman Theater at Northport will need to be fully vaccinated* with an FDA-authorized or WHO-approved vaccine to attend a performance. All patrons entering the theater must show confirmation of vaccination with their valid ID. A Vaccination Card or Excelsior Pass are both acceptable forms of confirmation.
*“Fully vaccinated” means the performance date you are attending must be:
- At least 14 days after your second dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or
- At least 14 days after your single dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.
Confirmation of vaccination will be required of all patrons over the age of 12.
AM I REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK?
At this time, we echo the CDC’s recommendation that all patrons wear a mask, but you will not be required to do so.
Children Under the Age of 12
Children under the age of 12 may still attend performances with a fully vaccinated adult, but they will be required to wear a mask throughout their time at the theater.
WHAT PROOF OF MY VACCINATION DO I NEED?
Confirmation of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination.
Guests can display confirmation on a smartphone or present a physical copy.
New York State residents or anyone who received a COVID-19 vaccine in New York State may present proof through the use of the Excelsior Pass.

GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO ID
In addition to confirmation of vaccination, all guests 18 years or older must also be prepared to present a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport. Guests younger than 18 may use a government-issued photo ID or school photo ID.
