Home » COVID Safety and Returns/Exchanges



WOU and SFAS remain committed to keeping you safe while on campus. If you are attending a performance, you must now fulfill the specific requirements outlined in the Creative Arts Division’s COVID Mitigation Plan. In addition, Rice Auditorium’s seating capacity will not exceed 75% and – to allow ample distance between audience members and performers – no one will be seated in the first three rows of the auditorium. Any updates will be posted to this page.


If you are unwilling or unable to meet the attendance requirements above, or cannot attend for some other reason, tickets can be exchanged into a performance later in the season if done so at least 48 hours in advance of the show for which you currently hold tickets. There are no refunds if a performance takes place. Should a performance need to be canceled, ticket proceeds will be refunded or donated back to SFAS based on ticket holder preference; if no preference has been communicated within 90 days, ticket proceeds will default to a charitable contribution. To request an exchange prior to a performance or to express preference after a performance has been canceled, contact the SFAS box office at 503-838-8333.
