Theater Wit follows the community masking guidelines recommended by Chicago Department of Public Health and CDC Community Risk Levels as outlined below (https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid-19/home/covid-dashboard.html).

  • When Community Risk Level is HIGH (Red)- high quality mask required at all times indoors and in large groups
  • When Community Risk Level is MEDIUM (yellow) - Masks are recommended indoors and in large groups. If you are immunocompromised or at higher risk, consider wearing a mask at indoor public settings where vaccination status is unknown.
  • When Community Risk Level is LOW (green)- masks will be optional. If you are immunocompromised or at higher risk, consider wearing a mask at indoor public settings where vaccination status is unknown.
  • Masking in not required in the lobby or shared spaces.
  • If you choose to wear a mask, you may bring drinks and food from our bar into the spaces and lower your mask while actively drinking/eating.

Current Community Risk Level is MEDIUM. It is recommended but not required that patrons wear face coverings inside performance spaces, barring individual production guidance.

Free Exchanges due to illness

If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend :) Contact our box office on the day of performance and we will reschedule your ticket at no charge.

HVAC Improvements

Our upgraded HVAC systems increase the number of air exchanges to remove aerosolized droplets and provide updated filtering to meet CDC and city standards.

On behalf of the producers, staff and performers, we issue a heartfelt thank you to our audiences who make these generous accomodations for the health of all. We also thank you for respecting the choices of others regarding mask use in our space.

Reservation Policies

General Seating

Some performances at Theater Wit are general seating. The house opens twenty minutes prior to the performance for seat selection.

Late Seating

Our house management will make every effort to seat latecomers, but please be advised some shows, due to capacity issues or performance requirements are not open to late seating. We strongly recommend you arrive at the theater at least twenty minutes prior to your curtain time as we cannot guarantee late seating to every show.

Unattended Performances

If you are unable to attend a performance, or are unable to be seated, please talk to our box office staff immediately. While all ticket sales are non-refundable and non-exchangeable, we do issue vouchers (see below) that you can use to see a subsequent performance. Alternatively, you can convert your ticket purchase into a tax-deductible donation if your schedule doesn't allow you to return.

Vouchers

Patrons with a voucher can attend any performance presented by that company. For example, if you miss a production produced by Theater Wit, we will issue you a voucher good for any one of our performances. To redeem the voucher, just drop by the theater on the day of the performance and put your name on the waiting list. We'll release new tickets for the performance as soon as we're able to, based on availability, on a first-come, first-served basis.

COVID-19 Guarantee

If local restrictions require a performance to be cancelled due to COVID-19, all single ticket holders, Wit members and Flex Pass will be credited in full. Subscribers should contact the producing theater for refund policies.
