The safety of our patrons, staff and volunteers is a top priority for The Fox Tucson Theatre. According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low but we want you to feel confident when coming to the Fox and would like to share the steps we are taking:
• Increasing hand sanitizing stations throughout the venue
• Implementing limited “touch” policies for handling tickets
• Utilizing hospital-grade disinfectant cleaner in all high touch areas (handrails, door handles, etc.)
• Sanitizing wipe-downs of counters during the course of service in our concession and bar areas
• Supporting our staff and volunteers to stay informed and stay home if they are or become ill
• Switching to disposable cups for drinks instead of our reusable Fox cups
Currently, events at the Fox are proceeding as planned. We continue to work with individual touring artists, and to monitor the situation with local and national health organizations. At this time, both the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) have suggested caution related to events involving 5,000 people or more, with particular attention to events that feature international travelers from high impact areas, or which gather people from a wide range of locations. Examples you may have heard of in the media are South by Southwest in Austin, and locally the Tucson Festival of Books.
Should recommendations change to include the intimate, local circumstances at the Fox, we will keep patrons informed via email, social media, and our website. If you have any additional questions or concerns, we want to hear from you. You may visit our website for more detailed information or contact the box office at (520) 547-3040 or email email@example.com.
We encourage you to become familiar with the World Health Organization’s suggested safety precautions, which include:
• Washing your hands for 20 seconds and using alcohol based hand sanitizer
• If you are experiencing symptoms, stay home as best you are able and avoid being in large crowds (especially in enclosed areas).
• When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue and discard tissue immediately into a closed bin
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
Deciding Not to Attend an Event
We encourage you to take whatever measures you feel are necessary to safeguard your health based on your personal situation. While Fox does not offer refunds to patrons who make the decision not to attend an event, there are options available. You may offer the tickets to someone else or we are always grateful to those who decide to donate the cost of their tickets to the Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation. If neither of these options work for you, we are also able to provide credit toward a future event.
Event Postponement or Cancellation:
In the event that Pima County Health Department determines an event will be cancelled, all ticket holders will be notified by email and/or phone. Information will also be shared through e-blasts, our website and social media channels.
• We will determine if artists are able to reschedule to a later date or if the event will be cancelled. We will keep ticket holders apprised as new information becomes available in any such circumstances.
• Ticket holders will have the opportunity to decide if they prefer a voucher for credit to be used on another Fox event, if they would like the chance to support performing arts in Tucson by a donating the cost of tickets to our beautiful, historic Fox Tucson Theatre or if they would like a refund.
The performing arts industry is being hit hard by this type of situation, and we invite all of our patrons to first consider a donation to help us manage unrecoverable costs related to any such cancellations.
Widely regarded as the “Crown Jewel” of downtown Tucson, the Fox is a historic theatre of national renown but is quickly becoming one of the most vibrant performing arts centers in the Southwest. The Fox has played a leading role in the recent resurgence of downtown Tucson and continues to serve as a significant engine to the economic growth of the downtown area and Tucson as a whole.

The Fox Tucson Theater Box Office generally opens two hours prior to each performance. Each ticket has a unique barcode and only the first scan of the tickets will allow entry into the event. Keep your tickets in a safe place.
Will Call Tickets can be picked up anytime the Box Office is open. If coming to a show, there is no need to pick up your Will Call Tickets in advance – just come to the Will Call window when you arrive for the show, but feel free to give yourself a bit of extra time in case there is a line.
