Your Safety is our First Concern!
At the Allen Center, the NCA is first and foremost concerned about the safety of our space for our artists and guests. All NCA staff, volunteers, and participating member organizations and their artists are fully vaccinated. Our new and cutting edge Allen Center geothermal HVAC and air circulation system provides the ongoing steady flow of fresh air into the lobbies, performance, and gathering spaces of the facility.
The Allen Center requires all guests to provide proof of vaccination upon entry into the building and to wear masks indoors at all times. Our artists, in keeping with the Mayor's order, are permitted to perform without masks so long as they are 6 feet from the audience. The seating capacity at the Allen Center is 120 as registered with the city, however, for our Fall 2021 performances we are limiting the audience to 40 people. All seats will be a minimum of 2 feet distanced from the next person.
