Reopening Guidelines

The University of Florida Performing Arts reopening plan has been guided by the University of Florida, with help from epidemiology experts at UF Health, to ensure the safety of patrons who wish to join us for the magic of live performance in our venues. We truly appreciate your patience and support while we have worked through the detailed protocols and enhanced sanitation procedures needed to ensure safe attendance of performances, talks, meetings, and other gatherings in our buildings.

Whether it’s at an in-person performance or through a live stream, we look forward to bringing moments of meaning to life with you again. If you’d like to help, please consider making a contribution to our Intermission Fund. And in the mean time, sign up for our mailing list, visit our YouTube channel, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.

FAQs & Answers:

As we work on a detailed announcement of policies and procedures for reopening our venues, we would like to address a few frequently asked questions.

Will there be performances in the fall?
Yes! UFPA will be presenting performances in the fall in whatever way we can. These performances could present as live, in person events, high definition live streams, or as some other new and innovative way to engage with performance. The performances that we have planned for the fall and spring can be seen on our events page and on the video on our Season Preview page.

How will I buy tickets to performances this season?
All fall performances are on sale now. Tickets are available for purchase on our website or by calling the Phillips Center Box Office at 352.392.2787.
Spring performances will go on sale to the general public later in the fall semester, on a date that is still TBD. Preceding the spring performances on-sale date for the general public, there will be an Affiliate Members buying period that is also still TBD.

Will Season Preview happen?
Season Preview was live streamed on August 4th and can still be viewed here.

Will face masks be required to attend a performance?
Yes. As with all buildings on the University of Florida campus, you will be required to wear a face mask at all times while inside a UFPA venue. This requirement will remain in effect until University of Florida guidelines state otherwise.
