Health & Safety

The Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to welcome live audiences to the Palace Theatre this season.

UPDATED 3/24/2022 Masking:  Face masks are optional but recommended for all guests due to the duration of the show and the close proximity to others, both during the performance and while in the lobby and in public spaces.

Upgraded Safety: The Palace has implemented additional safety procedures. All persons must pass through the theatre’s screening process to enter the theatre, this includes a bag check and metal detectors.  To expedite your entrance, please hold items such as keys, phones, and loose change at chest level when passing through the metal detector.

In addition to routine cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting procedures in common areas throughout the day, Westmoreland Cultural Trust has implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures and their HVAC system has been upgraded. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all work together during this time. Please call 724-837-1850 with any questions.
