In light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Lycoming County and in accordance with current directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Pennsylvania College of Technology and the Community Arts Center will be requiring masks indoors for everyone regardless of their vaccination status. This decision will be reevaluated every two weeks. The decision will be informed by local case numbers, vaccination rates, test positivity rates, and the level of spread in Lycoming County. Depending on the review of these metrics, it is possible that these performances may require both a ticket and a mask.

When required, if you do not feel you can attend a performance and wear a mask, please notify the Box Office and we will refund the cost of your tickets. No one will be allowed into the theatre without a mask, so please don’t attend if you feel you can’t comply with this directive.
