COVID-19 & Public Health Update

We are continuing to closely monitor developments around COVID-19 and are following guidelines provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the NYC Department of Education, and the City of New York.

Together with our colleagues and in conversation with our audiences, we are committed to requiring mask wearing until further notice. We look forward to working together, and with our union partners, to chart a path forward into this endemic phase.

Our current covid safety policies can be found below.

Atlantic staff continue to work both in person and remotely and are reachable via email between 10am and 6pm ET. Please click here for staff contact information.

Atlantic Theater Company

2022/2023 Season

For more information about our 2022|2023 Season, click here.

At Atlantic, we are committed to providing and maintaining a gathering place that is free of known hazards. In order to safeguard the health of our entire community, we are requiring mask wearing for all employees, students, and audiences at this time.

All of our facilities have been upgraded to meet and/or exceed air filtration standards as recommended by the CDC. 

Our single ticket exchange policy has been temporarily revised to allow for exchanges up to 48 hours prior to a performance. However, if ticket buyers are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 within 14 days of their visit, or been instructed to self-isolate within the last 10 days, we ask that they stay home and contact us a minimum of 4 hours prior to show time to discuss rebooking options.

During the 2022|2023 season, members can exchange tickets up to 4 hours before show time. For more information on our Memberships, click here.

We recognize that public health guidelines may change in the coming months and ask that you bear with us as we make the necessary safety adjustments. We also ask that audiences do their part to protect themselves and others by reviewing and agreeing to the attendance protocols before attending our theater.

By visiting or entering Atlantic Theater Company or Atlantic Acting School, all audience members agree to abide by all COVID-19 safety measures including, but not limited to, wearing masks that cover your nose and mouth at all times while indoors.

Thank you so much. We can’t wait to welcome you back to Atlantic!

Atlantic Acting School


We are thrilled to have returned to the classroom! In order t​o safeguard the health of our entire community, requiring all incoming and current students to be fully vaccinated and boosted. Our COVID-19 vaccination policy applies to all Atlantic faculty, staff, and incoming/returning students. Students between the ages of 5-11 must be fully vaccinated and boosted, if eligible.

Students and faculty must wear a mask at all times while inside Atlantic spaces, except for occasional outdoor time, during intentional, mask-less break moments, and during performance or acting work that allows for safe mask removal. (No snacks or food will be permitted in the studio.)

The studios and all of our facilities have been upgraded to meet and/or exceed air filtration standards as recommended by the CDC. Air scrubbers have been installed in each studio.

Atlantic’s cleaning and disinfection protocols are developed in accordance with ongoing and evolving guidance from New York State and from the CDC.

Complete COVID-19 vaccination is defined as fourteen days following a final dose of the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna, or Astra-Zeneca vaccine. We will accept proof at the theater via the Excelsior Pass, the NYC COVID Safe Pass for Android and iOS, a copy or photo of your CDC vaccination card, and/or a copy or photo of an official immunization record from outside the United States. All guests must also present identification. 

Those that are requesting accommodation due to a medical condition or closely held religious belief should email us at for more details about our current policy.


Pick-up/Drop-off: Parents and caretakers will drop off and pick up students from the main lobby. For classes in Studio A (330 W. 16th St. entrance), this means the lower lobby outside of Studio A and for classes in studios 1 through 7 (76 Ninth Ave. entrance), this means the main lobby of Atlantic’s offices. Caretakers will not be permitted in the studios and must exit the lobby after dropping off until pick-up time.

Vaccinations: For students ages 5+, proof of vaccination will be required. We will collect this information prior to the start of the semester. All Atlantic faculty and staff are also required to show proof of vaccination status to work on-site.

Physical Distancing: Students will follow social distancing guidelines where appropriate in class. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “recommends schools maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students within classrooms to reduce transmission risk,” and we will mark 3 foot spaces in the studios.

Health Screening: Each class day, students (or their caretaker) must complete a three question daily health screening form  online—A welcome screen will display in email format once the form is completed, which you will show to gain admittance to the classroom.

Questions? Feel free to email us at for adult programs or for kids and teens programs.
