HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) — With the Delta variant causing yet another surge in the state, more artists going on tour are asking their audiences to either show proof of vaccination or a negative test within a 1-3 day window of the event.

When reaching out to Hershey Entertainment for their upcoming Hershey Theatre season, Communications Coordinator Gabrielle Lyon said “guest safety remains our top priority” and they’re “working with the tours regarding any requirements.” She also mentioned they’re continuing to keep communication with audiences through social media and their website.

According to The New York Times, Broadway national tours will require all company members to be fully vaccinated and test often, but not for audience members through the Actor’s Equity and Broadway League agreement. Theatergoers would have to remain masked and be seated at least six feet away from the pit or foot of the stage.

Lyon said those announcements for Escape to Margaritaville, Waitress and The Prom will come on social media and straight to ticket holders when the time gets closer, which goes for all acts coming to Hershey.

Here’s a running list of acts coming to Hersheypark Stadium, Hershey Theatre and GIANT Center and their requirements for the rest of 2021 (all are subject to change):
