Safety Guidelines

All rehearsals and the performances will be outdoors, following safety guidelines.

To those parents who are still on the fence about participation in this kind of activity, I want to remind you that we very successfully ran both Summer Stage and Rent. We intend to follow strict guidelines – always with love and care.  Here is a reminder of how we plan to follow state and city safety guidelines as we proceed:

Our Safety Protocols include:

  • Masks at all times (Including during performances),
  • Social Distancing
  • Outdoor rehearsals
  • Outdoor performances (in early-mid November) with only the number of audience members that can be placed 6 feet apart on the deck. (and follows gathering guidelines)

Contingency plans for rehearsals around inclement weather include:

  • Switching to Virtual for any choreo/acting rehearsals scheduled
  • Youtube videos teaching any music rehearsals scheduled
