Protecting Everyone's Safety

We are dedicated to protectding the safety of our cast and crew, volunteers, and patrons. 

FOR AUDITIONS

  • To limit the number of people in the building, auditions will be held by appointment only and limited to five auditionees and essential personnel at a time.

  • Masks are required. Anyone refusing to wear a mask will be asked to leave.

  • Video auditions will be accepted from any actor who does not wish to audition in person.

  • Those cast in the show or working in any other capacity must agree to follow the Village Playhouse’s COVID-19 protocols. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from the production.

 

FOR REHEARSALS:

  • The rehearsal space will be cleaned and sanitized between every rehearsal per CDC recommendations.

  • Rehearsals will be closed and limited to cast and crew needed for the specific scenes being rehearsed.

  • Masks will be worn at all times during the rehearsal process.

  • Hand sanitizer will be provided.  Actors will not share pencils, highlighters or scripts.

  • Virtual rehearsals via Zoom may be used to supplement in-person rehearsals.

  • Anyone feeling ill will not attend rehearsals.

  • If a cast member or someone in their immediate family is diagnosed with COVID-19, all in-person rehearsals will cease for 10 days. That cast member will not return to in-person rehearsals until cleared to do so by the appropriate health authorities.

  • Vaccines are recommended for members of the production. Any cast or crew member not vaccinated will be required to submit a negative PCR test each week of rehearsals and before each weekend of performances.

 

FOR PERFORMANCES:

  • All patrons attending a show in person are required to show proof of vaccine or a negative COVID test result within 72 hours of performance date.

  • We follow local health guidelines and venue policies with regard to mask wearing. As of March 12, 2022, masks are not required.

  • Streaming options will be available for patrons who wish to watch from home. 

  • The performance space, audience seating area, lobbies and restrooms will be cleaned and sanitized between each performance per CDC recommendations.

  • If a patron feels ill within 24 hours of the performance they plan to attend, tickets for their entire group will be exchanged for a different performance or refunded.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available in multiple locations through the building.

  • Electronic programs will be available for viewing on smart phones and tablets. Hard copies of programs will not be reused. Patrons will be asked to take these home.

 

We use a variety of spaces for rehearsals and performances.  As much, we must follow the safety guidelines of the rehearsal and/or performance venue we are using. These may differ from our policies.

Thank you in advance for helping us keep everyone safe and healthy.
