NYC schools require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for students 12+ to participate in performing arts activities like theatre, which includes Opening Act.

Students and families may use any of the below options to provide their one-time proof of vaccination directly to their teaching artists at the school.

    • NYC Vaccination Record or other official immunization record from within or outside the U.S., including from your health care provider. A photo or photocopy of this card is also acceptable. If you are unable to get this record, call 311.
    • NYC COVID Safe App: Android | iOS. Students can upload to this app a photo of your CDC vaccination card or other official record, along with their photo ID.
Feel free to reach out to Sarah Branch, Opening Act’s Manager of Programs & Student Experiences at with questions.
