We are so excited to welcome you back to the Weis Center. This year's season features a diverse schedule of live performances designed to inspire your mind, energize your body and restore your heart.
We've missed you and look forward to presenting the live experiences you crave, alongside the safety precautions you expect.
We've spent the past months preparing our spaces and taking every precaution to ensure that you are safe and comfortable while attending live performances at the Weis Center. When you visit, all you'll have to do is relax, sit back and enjoy the show.
Our safety measures meet or exceed all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, including masking requirements, increased sanitation measures and socially distanced seating. Should any of our policies evolve as the season progresses, we will communicate those changes with our guests.
Whether it's your first time visiting our performing arts center or you’re a seasoned patron, our team continues to work hard for you, making sure our guests and artists have the high-quality experience that has become the Weis Center standard.
