Safety Policies for 'Every

Christmas Story Ever Told' at The Sauk.


  • Guests will be required to wear a mask at all times. Our ushers and front of house volunteers will all be wearing face coverings. The actors will be wearing face shields during the performance.
  • Guests will have their temperature checked before they are allowed entry. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 Fahrenheit will not be admitted. Temperature checks will be taken of all performers, technicians and volunteers.

  • Please be advised that our staff and volunteers are working extremely hard at staying healthy. We check their temperatures before rehearsals and performances, and they are not allowed to participate if they have a fever or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. For the safety of our theatre experience, if any audience member is experiencing fever or COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend. We will gladly make every effort to reschedule you or give you a full refund. The success and future of our season relies on honest participation from volunteers and guests.
