welcome back What a year it's been! Performance Santa Fe has used this time to learn how we can adapt in the face of adversity. Through all the challenges, one thing has remained constant — your support. The outpouring of generosity over this past year has allowed us to present exceptional digital performances to both local and global audiences and enabled us to shift our award-winning education programs to online platforms, serving more young people across the state than ever before. Now more than a year later, we’re emerging with a plan to welcome you back safely. As we anticipate resuming live, in-person concerts, we will continue to work in partnership with each of our venues and take every measure possible to adhere to the highest standard of caution. The health and safety of our patrons, staff, and artists are our highest priority as we plan for our 2021-2022 season. Our safety protocols are being developed in collaboration with public health officials and CDC recommendations and will continue to evolve. Your continued patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated as we strive to keep everyone safe this season.

Welcome back. We’ve missed you.


SAFETY PROCEDURES MASKS

All patrons, especially unvaccinated patrons, are encouraged to wear a face mask from the time you enter the venue, throughout the duration of the performance, and as you are leaving. Please ensure that masks fit properly and cover your mouth and nose. PSF will provide you with a mask if you have forgotten yours and would like to wear one. Note that all PSF staff and volunteers will be wearing masks at all of our performances for the safety and comfort level of our patrons.

We encourage all patrons, staff, and artists to wash their hands frequently and use the hand sanitizer dispensers located throughout each venue. Recommended cleaning and disinfection products and procedures will be used to regularly sanitize all frequently shared surfaces.

PAPERLESS PROGRAMS

Our show programs are going digital! Joining many other venues nationwide, Performance Santa Fe will no longer distribute printed event programs. They will be

available via the show pages on the PSF website and will be emailed to ticketed patrons on the day of each performance. This adjustment is designed to minimize person-to-person contact. We appreciate your patience as we make this transition.

We encourage anyone who is feeling unwell not to attend a performance. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, please call the Box Office prior to your performance to discuss your ticket options.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

S u p p o r t t h e A n n u a l Fu n d ! For more than eight decades, Performance Santa Fe has enriched the lives of Santa Fe audiences with hundreds of world-class performances throughout the community. But, did you know that ticket sales account for only 40% of our annual operating budget?

ACCESSIBILITY

Parking varies by venue. We suggest arriving 30 minutes before any scheduled start time to park and locate your seat.

If you need wheelchair seating or any other special assistance, please specify your needed accommodation when purchasing tickets.

DRESS Santa Fe is a casual town and there is no set dress code. Most people wear clothing appropriate for a cocktail party to business casual. Please refrain from wearing any strongly scented products and be mindful of jewelry and accessories that make noise.

L AT E S E AT I N G At this time, New Mexico's Covid Safe Practices do not allow for late seating. We suggest arriving 30 minutes prior to each performance.
