A Safe Return

The health and safety of our audiences, artists, and staff is our top priority. We will continue working closely with our government partners and safety advisors to safely welcome you back to live performances at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts.

Proof of Vaccination

The Province of Ontario has a mandatory vaccination policy for theatres and concert venues. All patrons, 12 years of age or older, must provide proof of vaccination to attend performances at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts.

Arriving at the Theatre

Patrons who are not able to provide proof of vaccination will not be permitted to enter the facility or attend the performance.

For the safety of all, patrons under quarantine or isolation, or who have been exposed or have come in contact with someone with COVID-19, are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19, must not come to the theatre.


Capacity Restrictions and Seating

In accordance with guidelines from Ontario Public Health theatres are currently closed. 

Cleaning Protocols

Enhanced cleaning and sanitation protocols are in place before, during, and after each performance with common contact surface areas and hand sanitizers available throughout the venue.


The Young Centre Café will be open for performances. Patrons may not bring food or drink into the theatres, but may enjoy items from the Café in the Atrium before their show.
