DGSD Acting Program COVID-19 Guidelines

The Acting Program at David Geffen School of Drama at Yale will hold in person auditions in New Haven, Chicago, and San Francisco.

Please read carefully the following COVID-19 guidelines for all in person auditioning applicants.

These policies and guidelines will be updated in response to local conditions and the policies of Yale University and are therefore subject to change. The latest information will be posted on this page. We encourage you to check back here often as you near your audition date.


COVID-19 Audition Safety Requirements


Yale University requires all guests on campus to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All auditioning applicants will be asked to submit documentation supporting COVID-19 vaccination status prior to auditioning. Individuals are currently considered fully vaccinated after receiving both the primary dose and a booster. The bivalent booster is strongly recommended but not required. Updated recommendations can be found on the CDC website.


At check-in you will be required to show proof of ID and proof of vaccination. We will accept proof-of-vaccination from all FDA and WHO authorized vaccines. Proof must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. You may display proof digitally or by presenting a physical copy.

At check-in you will also be required to bring proof of a negative PCR or Rapid Antigen test taken within 24 hours before attending. Anyone unable to provide proof will be asked to take an onsite rapid antigen test that will be supplied.

At check-in you may be required to answer a health screener.

Masks are required inside all audition rooms and during the check-in process. You will be asked to remove your mask during the audition. If you wish to remain masked for the duration of the audition you may do so. If you have been named as a close contact of someone who has COVID-19 in the last 10 days you must remain masked.
