UB no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination for sports and cultural events

As of March 5, 2022, proof of vaccination against COVID-19 and masks are no longer required at University at Buffalo events. Patrons do not need to show a vaccination card to attend cultural events at the Center for the Arts and Katharine Cornell Theatre. Anyone who wishes to continue wearing a mask is welcome to do so.

2022-2023 DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE AND DANCE SEASON

Composite graphic of dancers and actors on stage.

Join the University at Buffalo Department of Theatre and Dance (THD) for a unique season of dance, musicals, and plays – where nationally recognized directors and choreographers work with esteemed faculty and emerging student talent from UB to produce innovative original productions which both entertain and explore the human condition. In challenging times the arts offer welcome comfort, perspective, escape, joy and intellectual stimulation.

THD’s 2022-2023 season of productions consists of ticketed, in-person performances at our traditional Amherst, NY home UB Center for the Arts, and the Katharine Cornell Theatre, on the UB North Campus. See each individual show listing for venue. We continue to observe all safety protocols for the best experience for our talented study body and dedicated patrons.
