Covid-19 Health Precautions

Every attendee must show a picture ID and proof of vaccination, and wear a mask at all times.

For extra safety, Mill Hill Playhouse has updated its ventilation system with a state-of-the-art HVAC system by Honeywell. This system features ultraviolet light filtration. UV-C light irradiates the coil and air handler interior, killing mold, bacteria, and viruses.
