For more than 60 years, Whitman College students have graced the stages of this historic campus theater with their talent and passion. Loves have been lost. Wars have been waged. Musicals, mysteries and comedies have enthralled audiences to the last curtain call.

In accordance with State of Washington guidance for institutes of higher education, Whitman College is a fully vaccinated campus community. As such, all visiting audience members for our 2021-2022 season must show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a booster upon entrance to any event at Harper Joy Theater. Additionally, we are requiring all individuals, including those who are fully vaccinated, to wear N95, KN95, or KF94 face masks when they are indoors in group settings or public spaces. These protocols are subject to change at the discretion of the college in response to the evolving pandemic circumstances.
