COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Patrons should not attend performances if they are feeling ill with COVID-19 symptoms or other illnesses to prevent getting others around them ill. 


Observe social distancing to the greatest extent possible by maintaining a distance of at least six (6) feet between individuals/households.

There will be hand sanitization stations set up throughout our venues, and patrons are encouraged to utilize these as needed.

George & Sharon Mabry Concert Hall

Every other row of the George & Sharon Mabry Concert Hall will be reserved for social distancing reasons.


Employees, students, visitors, and contractors/vendors are required to wear a cloth or surgical style mask or face covering in all Austin Peay State University buildings and are strongly encouraged to wear a cloth or surgical style mask outdoors when closer than six feet apart from another person. The face covering must be worn properly over the nose and mouth. In an effort to keep our community safe, these masks must be worn for the duration of the visit or business on campus.

The Franklin Theatre

All performers, staff, crew, and guests will be required to wear face masks (no gaiters or bandanas) while in the building. This can exclude performers while on stage during performance.
