Facility Policies & Event Procedures

  • The Canton Palace Theatre remains at 100% capacity
  • Per the updated CDC Masking Guidelines, as of February 25, 2022 and that Stark County, Ohio is in the low transmission category on the CDC website,, the Canton Palace Theatre will move to being a mask optional facility for all attendees.  Those wanting to continue to wear masks indoor may continue to do so.
  • The Canton Palace Theatre will continue to have fresh air circulating in the Theatre and will continue to offer sanitizing stations in the Theatre. Dress accordingly for fresh air to be circulating in the building.
  • The Canton Palace Theatre will honor the requests of any renter or performer who may have a different policy for vaccination/masks/capacity and will be sure to communicate that in advance to ticket buyers.  If the show you are attending is not listed here, that means there are no restrictions for that event.
  • Current shows with special COVID-19 requirements are:
    • Tuesday, May 17, 2022 – “Weird Al” Yankovic: The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, Special Guest: Emo Philips
      • All adult guests must be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the concert to enter the theatre and must present digital or physical proof at the door. “Fully vaccinated” means having received your final dose at least two weeks prior to the concert. Guests over 18 must present valid photo ID matching the name on their vaccination or negative test documentation. Children under 12 must either be masked or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours. Masks may be required for adults depending on local requirements or other health factors at the time of the concert; please check the Venue Event Page of your concert before arriving at the concert.
  • Canton Palace Theatre volunteers and staff have the option to wear a mask if they choose to.  It is no longer mandatory. If a staff member or volunteer is not feeling well and/or showing symptoms of COVID-19 or has been exposed to COVID-19, they should not enter the Theatre and should notify the Canton Palace Theatre Executive Director as soon as possible.
