We are delighted to be back in the Byrne Theater for live performances again.  Northern Stage will be adhering to the recommended COVID-19 safety protocols. Patrons will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid) within 72 hours of the performance you are attending. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 will be allowed to show partial vaccination status. Children under the age of 5 must show must also display a negative test result.  Masks will be required inside the Barrette Center for the Performing Arts for the entire duration of the performance. This is for the safety of all and allows us to keep offering in-person programming. Thank you for keeping our community safe!

Northern Stage will also be using the Bindle health app, an easy way to privately share your COVID health status.


Whether you’ve had a complete course of vaccinations or are planning to take a COVID test (or both!), the first thing
you need to do is download the Bindle app.

1. Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store on your mobile device and search for “My Bindle.”

2. After you download the app, set up an account on the Bindle app by providing a selfie, your email address and
DOB. As a final step, you’ll be prompted to type in a verification code that is sent to your email.

3. Upload your COVID-19 vaccination and COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (or lab/test results) by going to
My Certificates on your Bindle and tap the “+” icon and follow the instructions.

4. Once you’ve uploaded your digital health records (vaccine record or test results), go to My Passes on your Bindle
and search for Northern Stage. Then, click Create Entry Pass and if you pass, you’ll be presented with an entry pass
including your selfie, a QR code and an expiration date.

5. When you arrive at the event, the staff will either scan or visually inspect your Entry Pass to verify your COVID-19
health status.

6. If you have any other questions check out Bindle’s FAQ.
