To keep your young actor safe and healthy, here are the guidelines we will be following:

  • Contactless Drop-off and Pickup: Parents will stay in the car while MCPA takes care of the rest. Drop-off can be no more than 5 minutes before each rehearsal and pick-up must happen immediately at the end of the class. Only actors and staff will be permitted in the building during the workshop/rehearsals. 

  • Safety Checks: Each actor will be met at the backstage door, asked some quick health questions and have their temperature taken with a no-touch thermometer before being directed to their assigned space.

  • Social Distancing: No more than 10 students and up to two instructors will be permitted in each workshop/rehearsal area at any given time. 6 feet of distance will be maintained between individuals through all activities, rehearsals and breaks.

  • Materials: No materials will be shared. Actors are responsible for bringing their script/score, etc. to each rehearsal. Any prop assigned to an actor will become the responsibility of that actor for the remainder of the rehearsal process. 

  • Masks: Actors and Staff will stay masked at all times. 

  • Sanitation: All spaces will be cleaned and disinfected before and after each rehearsal. Hand-sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.

  • Water: Drinking fountains are not accessible, so actors MUST bring their own water. 

  • Restrooms: To maintain distance, actors will be permitted to use the restroom as needed one at a time.
