In keeping with the guidance of the Iowa Board of Regents, the administration of the University of Iowa, and the Centers for Disease Control, Hancher Auditorium will open at 100 percent capacity for the 2021-2022 season. Social distancing will not be required.

We do ask—again in accordance with the guidance of the organizations noted above—that those who have not been fully vaccinated (or those who simply would feel more comfortable) continue to wear a mask until public health officials advise otherwise.

Only patrons with tickets will be allowed entry to Hancher performances. Tickets will be scanned at the entrance doors to Hancher Auditorium. Patrons will be allowed to enter the building to pick up will-call tickets and/or purchase tickets the day of a performance.

Hancher staff will continue to monitor, clean, and sanitize high touch points throughout the building.

Hand sanitizer kiosks will be located throughout the building.
