WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW when purchasing tickets

By attending an Event at an ATG venue, all patrons are acknowledging their consent to, and agreed to abide by, the COVID-19 protocols that have been adopted by the venue. 

Masks ARE REQUIRED to be worn by all patrons while in the venue regardless of vaccination status. 

All patrons must present proof of a FULL Covid-19 vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event (FULL Vaccination = 2nd dose at least 14 days prior to the event) with a government issued ID for entry.  Other protocols may be in effect at the time of Event. We reserve the right to unilaterally change protocols according to updated public health guidance and applicable law. Protocols are posted on each ATG venue website; specific patron requirements will be set forth in email notifications. Any ticket holder who does not comply with any COVID-19 protocol may be required to leave the venue without any entitlement to a refund. Guests with protocol accessibility questions may call (313) 872-1000.   See below for specific information regarding our protocols for Disney's The Lion King and Blippi The Musical.

  • Professionally administered PCR or Rapid Test (by a nurse or a physician)
  • Pharmacy administered PCR or Rapid Test (such as a CVS or Rite Aid)
  • Other Lab-tested PCR or Rapid Test 

Home Test Kit results will NOT be accepted

Guests who have recovered from COVID-19 can attend the show with a dated positive test result (taken within the past 90 days) and/or a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or public health official stating that the guest has completed their quarantine period, in lieu of a negative COVID test result.
