Monthly Theatre Workshops
We were heartbroken when we heard about the seriousness of COVID-19 and it’s spreading back in March. We tried to do our part in everyone’s safety by cancelling our Summer 2020 Theatre Workshops. This would have been our 22nd Season and we, like many of you, were saddened to cancel the 2020 season. Ever since then, we have been trying to come up with a way to offer some sort of outlet for our students and we are really excited with what we have come up with!
Our New Covid-19 Policy
Our number one priority is your safety. We understand that there is a virus, and we want to reassure you that we are taking every precaution to ensure our participants’ health and safety. Upon arrival, every student will have their temperature taken with a touchless, forehead thermometer. If anyone’s temperature is over 100.4 degrees, they will be sent home. Every participant is required to wear a facial mask to class (please no bandanas or neck gaiters). Classes have been designed to be socially distant. Class sizes will be no larger than 8 participants and chairs will be spaced six feet apart. Masks can be taken off when working individually with the instructor or when performing. Hand sanitizer bottles will be placed throughout the space for students’ use and surfaces will be sanitized in between classes.
Thank you for understanding and abiding by our precautions.
