A note from the director

Portrait of Rob Richter '82, Director of Arts Programming.

We are excited that we have been able to invite audiences back for live performances and we are doubly excited that the renovation of the new Athey Center for Performance and Research at Palmer Auditorium is complete.  The season is filled with world-class music, dance and theater, presented by artists from a wide spectrum of cultural and creative backgrounds and perspectives.  It is unique, eclectic and innovative programming designed to engage, entertain and inspire.  You will not find programming like this anywhere else in the region.

While we are optimistic, we still must be mindful of the ongoing and ever changing Covid-19 pandemic.  Connecticut College is requiring that all students, staff and faculty be vaccinated for Covid-19.  The members of the campus community are being tested regularly and masks are being required in some indoor settings regardless of vaccination status.  In keeping with Connecticut College’s Covid-19 policies all visitors to Connecticut College, including those attending events and performances, must abide by Connecticut College’s Covid-19 Protocols.  The protocols for visitors are: 

ALL visitors to the campus, regardless of vaccination status, are expected to wear masks at performances. 

Connecticut College requires that all visitors fill out and sign an Attestation Form that states they are vaccinated against Covid-19 or have a negative test and do not have any Covid-19 symptoms. You may download a copy of the form here and bring this with you to the event.  Forms will also be available at the event.

The protocols are subject to change based on the State of Connecticut and CDC Guidance and Connecticut College policy.  For the most up-to-date information please call (860-439-2787) or email (onstage@conncoll.edu) the box office. 

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming performance.
