COCA health safety face masks

Masks Recommended

Face masks are strongly recommended at COCA, not required. We highly encourage all patrons wear face masks, especially those who are unvaccinated and those who remain vulnerable to COVID-19.

Performers

Vaccinated performers are not required to test prior to performances. Unvaccinated performers have the option to perform masked or follow COCA’s testing protocols and test negative for COVID-19 to perform unmasked.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

The Catherine B. Berges Theatre, Staenberg Performance Lab, and all high touch areas, will be sanitized in between performances. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the COCA campus.

Accessibility

COCA is pleased to offer accessible seating, communication aids, and other accommodations for our patrons and students with special needs. Special accommodations for COCA performances can be requested through the Box Office at 314.561.4873 or boxoffice@cocastl.org. Special accommodations for camps, classes, workshops, and other COCA programming can be requested through the Registration Office at 314.561.4898 or registration@cocastl.org.

Mobility Accommodations

A number of accessible parking spaces are located in COCA’s free parking garage on the north side of Washington Avenue. Guests with special needs may also be dropped off in COCA’s circle drive in front of the main entrance on Washington Avenue.

Our front entrance and lobby are accessible. The elevator to other floors is located in the lobby, just south of reception. 

Catherine B. Berges Theatre

Seating in the orchestra level rows A–E is accessible via a wheelchair lift directly across from the lobby elevators on Level 1. The entry level of the theatre has seats that can be removed with advance notice to accommodate patrons in wheelchairs, as well as seats with arms that lift to allow patrons to transfer from wheelchairs. View Catherine B. Berges Theatre Seating Chart

Accessible restrooms are located south of the theatre, near the elevators on Level 1 (orchestra) and Level 2 (mezzanine). 

Staenberg Performance Lab

Patrons will need to call the Box Office for accessible seating options in the Staenberg Performance Lab since the telescopic seating is not accessible for those with limited mobility.

Service Animals

Trained service dogs are welcome to accompany their owner into COCA. We recommend aisle seating for patrons with service dogs to allow sufficient room for them to sit or lay down. A service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.
