The Lobero Theatre will follow current local, state and federal health guidelines.

Please note that some artists may have specific audience requirements, which we will honor. Please see your event listing for more detailed information.

We encourage all patrons, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks while indoors. Please do not attend if you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or if you are feeling ill. Thank you for your cooperation.


Upgraded HVAC and Air Circulation

The Lobero has consulted with Mechanical Engineers to determine best practices and take extra precautions for the health and safety of our Lobero staff, artists, and guests. We have replaced the standard MERV 8 filters with all new, higher value MERV 13 filters specifically designed to eliminate circulation of airborne microbes; installed sterilizing UV light systems on evaporator coils to irradiate and kill airborne microbes in the duct work before they reach the general air supply, and we have reprogramed our system to inject 100% fresh air while eliminating recirculation of inside air.


We thank the Santa Barbara community for supporting the performing arts while we work hard to follow the most up-to-date guidelines for the Covid-19 pandemic and keep our audience members, staff, and performers safe.

Please know we will continue to be responsive to the evolving situation and will keep ticket holders informed with any updates, and will make ticket exchanges or refunds available through the Lobero Box Office on a show-by-show basis.

We will continue to keep you apprised as quickly as we can of all scheduling changes. If you have any questions please call the Lobero Theatre Box Office at 805.963.0761 (Monday-Friday 10 AM-5 PM) or email for assistance.
