The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation has taken many measures for the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, staff, and artists.

  • A touchless ticket scanning process has been implemented for guest safety.
  • All high traffic areas are sanitized thoroughly before and after each show.
  • Automatic hand sanitizing dispensers are located throughout the facility.
  • We are following the State of Ohio and Van Wert Health Department mandates. Presently there are no restrictions on capacity at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.
  • The lobby will open one hour before each performance. The house doors will open anywhere from 30-60 minutes prior to showtime depending upon Tech & Sound Check completion for each artist.
  • Masks are not required and are optional.
  • Please do not attend if showing any symptoms for COVID.
  • A ticketed guest exhibiting symptoms of COVID who contacts the Box Office prior to showtime can exchange their ticket value towards a future show.
  • The concession stand offers snacks and drinks from local vendors, and can be consumed in the Lobby and taken into Saltzgaber Music Hall.
  • If sudden changes to our season happen, we will notify all ticket holders via email, social media, or phone
