The DCS is excited to resume performing and to welcome our patrons back to Neumann University’s Meagher Theatre! The DCS is committed to providing as safe an environment as possible and has developed policies based upon guidance from local and federal health agencies and in consultation with Neumann University and other local arts organizations. Please refer back to this page throughout the season as policies are subject to change.

  • Proof of vaccination is required for all DCS musicians, guest soloists and volunteers. Proof of vaccination is not required for DCS patrons attending a performance.


  • Masks are required for everyone in all campus buildings, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be double-layer cloth with a nose wire fitting to mold mask over the nose; K95 and surgical masks are also acceptable. DCS wind and brass players are not required to wear masks while playing. DCS patrons who do not comply with the mask policy will be asked to leave the theater.


  • Patrons who do not purchase their tickets online must complete the Neumann University Health Check on concert days found here. This is for contact tracing purposes. Patrons who do not have internet access or a smartphone may complete the Health Check via paper form upon arrival. The paper form will be retained by the DCS until June 30, 2022, should contact tracing need to be done.


  • Seating is general admission. Groups may sit in adjacent seats, leaving a minimum of one empty seat between each group.


  • Meagher Theatre seating is currently limited to 250 persons.


  • COVID mitigation efforts at Neumann University include:

           - Restroom signage recommending frequent, 20-second hand washing in all bathrooms.

           - Hand sanitizer located at every building entrance.

           - Bathrooms are cleaned twice daily.

           - Ventilation systems have been maintained and Air Change Rates increased; air filters are a minimum of Merv-10 and are changed

             every 2 months.
