• 2021/22 Reopening Plans

Your Health and Safety Is Our Priority

As we return to live, in-person performances for our 2021/22 Season, Cal Performances is developing reopening protocols in conjunction with rapidly evolving state, local, and university health regulations and we are committed to formulating health and safety protocols for our venues that support the continued health and safety of our staff, artists, and audiences.  We would like to encourage everyone to consider receiving a vaccination for COVID-19, as this is the best measure we have to enable us to join together in experiencing community and the arts together.

To ensure alignment with the most current COVID-19 safety regulations, Cal Performances will announce venues, seating configurations, pricing, and other safety protocols as tickets go on sale on June 22 for outdoor events and in August as tickets go on sale for indoor events.

We anticipate that pandemic conditions will continue to evolve, and we will stay in close communication with audience members about all changes throughout the season. As we get closer to the opening of our 2021/22 Season, check back to this page often for updates to be kept up to date about our return to in-person performances.

Not Our First Goat Rodeo at the Greek Theatre

We’re looking forward to returning to a new season of live performance with the presentation of Not Our First Goat Rodeo on August 21 in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Greek Theatre. We are greatly encouraged that the State of California has successfully reached all of its goals for the safe re-opening of the state to most activities, and by the high rates of vaccination in the City of Berkeley and throughout the Bay Area community we call home.

As we return, please be assured that your health and safety are our top priority. The following guidelines are formulated in conjunction with the latest recommendations by the State of California, local public health officials, and UC Berkeley to support a safe environment and wonderful experience for all staff, artists, and audiences. Cal Performances intends to continue to be as intentional as possible in our approach to officials’ guidelines and requirements by continuously monitoring public health trends from now through the date of the concert, including those regarding face coverings, and it is possible we will make further adjustments prior to the performance date in response to any changes. We encourage you to check back often for the latest information.

Seating Capacity

In accordance with the June 15 reopening guidelines for the State of California, the Greek Theatre will be available at 100% capacity for Not Our First Goat Rodeo. Social distancing will not be in effect and all sections will be open to both vaccinated and unvaccinated guests alike.

Guest Requirements

Cal Performances would like to encourage everyone who is able to receive a vaccination for COVID-19 to do so, as this is the best measure we have to once again enjoy community and the arts together. While the vaccination is highly recommended, proof of vaccination status will not be required for entry at this time.

Mask Requirements

Cal Performances is still working on formulating its final policy regarding the wearing of face coverings in the theater in order to be in full alignment with the most current State of California guidelines, UC Berkeley policies, and current trends regarding mitigating the risk of COVID-19 community transmission. We will notify all guests prior to the performance as to final guidelines.

Mobile Tickets

Tickets will be issued via mobile delivery only. You will receive your mobile tickets by email and will be required to show your ticket on your phone at the door. Detailed instructions on how to access your mobile tickets will be provided in advance of the event.

Policy Changes and Refund Policy

As we expect that COVID-19 conditions and public health policies will continue to evolve in the coming months, we may make changes to the above policies closer to the actual performance date, and we will  stay in close contact with all ticket holders in the coming weeks. Should a change in policy make you uncomfortable with your ticket purchase to this event for any reason, we will be happy to issue a refund upon request.

Please note that these policies and guidelines refer only to the outdoor presentation in the Greek Theatre at this time. Indoor performance guidelines will be announced in August.
