We want your young actor to be safe at drama club! Here are some protective measures we’re planning to implement in fall 2021. Please note that our policies may be superseded by our host schools’ policies or by updates to federal, state, and local pandemic regulations.
What precautions are you taking during rehearsals?
Our teaching artists and students will be required to wear masks while they’re indoors. Spares will be available in case your child forgets their mask (or if it breaks).
Per CDC guidance, we’ll maintain a three-foot distance between students whenever possible.
Hand sanitizer will be available to students during drama club.
Our teaching artists are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.*
What precautions are you taking for the students’ performance?
Our plan is for students to perform in-person for invited guests, but audience size may be limited to ensure social distancing. (Stay tuned for details.) Audience members will be asked to wear masks regardless of vaccine status.
We’ll provide clear face coverings for our actors so that their facial expressions can be seen clearly during the show.
What if school moves online or everyone in drama club has to quarantine?
We really, really hope that extended school closures are a thing of the past! If the delta variant forces schools to temporarily close, or if an entire drama club has to quarantine because of an infected student, our plan is to postpone rehearsals until we can safely resume in-person meetings.
Moving a drama club online will be a last resort. However, if our program can’t continue in person because of extended quarantines or school closures beyond our control, we reserve the right to move a drama club (including the performance) to a virtual format. Please note that refunds will not be offered if we’re forced by circumstances to move a program online.
What if my child gets sick or has to quarantine during the eight weeks of drama club?
We’ll hold your child’s role in the play for them while they’re absent so long as they return before our performance day. Unfortunately, if a student is absent on performance day, we’ll have to assign their role to another actor so that the other kids can perform. We do not issue refunds for missed sessions (including missed performances) in our programs.
