HILLSDALE COUNTY'S COMMUNITY THEATRE

Safety Policies at The Sauk.


  • For safety and social distancing purposes, "Approaching Zanzibar," "Sauk Shorts" and "A Night of Improv Comedy" will be sold with limited capacity. We will be selling 92 seats per performance (approximately 39 percent of our available seating).

  • Guests will be required to wear a mask at all times while inside the theatre. Our ushers and front of house volunteers will all be wearing face coverings. The actors will be wearing clear face shields during the performance. 

  • Patrons who cannot wear a mask for a medical reason are encouraged to stay at home until we can safely lift the required mask rule. We will miss you but we want you to stay safe!

  • Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets prior to coming to the theatre.

  • No outside food or drink is allowed. 
  • At this time, no concessions will be sold. 
  • The drinking fountain in the lobby is currently not available for use.
  • 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.
  • The box office will offer refunds for any patron who does not feel safe attending the performance. Requests for refunds must be made before a performance begins. Once the performance has begun, refunds are not available. 
  • At the end of the performance, audiences will be dismissed one row at a time starting at the back of the auditorium.
