CTW’s Covid-19 Guidelines

Theatre programs are going to be different in consideration of Covid-19. Here’s what you can expect: 

Health and Safety Practices During Programs:

-When you arrive at your program, your teacher will take your temperature with a forehead thermometer. If your students’ temperature is over 100 degrees, they will be sent home. Please don’t leave until we take your student’s temperature!

-All students and staff must wear an approved face covering during each program. Students and staff may wear masks from home, or disposable masks will be provided by CTW free of charge.

-No additional guests are permitted to attend classes or rehearsals; guardians may not wait in the theatre or lounge during a program.

-Students and staff clean hands with hand sanitizer (provided by CTW) or warm soapy water at the beginning and end of each program. Any activities involving touching hands will conclude with hand cleaning as well.

-6 foot distanced spots are marked on the floor in tape, to help staff and students easily distance during class activities.

-Teachers are instructed to reduce amount of touching and increase as much distance as possible during classes and rehearsals. Musical theatre classes can include singing and dancing, provided masks are worn the entire time and social distancing is enforced for choreography when possible. No musical theatre performances (without masks) will be permitted at this time.

-Food may not be consumed during classes or rehearsals. Students and staff must eat before or after classes/rehearsals. Beverages must be brought from home by students and staff, kept in sealable containers, not shared, and may be consumed while distanced from the group. Hands must be cleaned after.

-Programs will be held outside on the lawn when weather permits. No programs will be held outside in the event of excessive heat or cold, or any precipitation.

-All high-contact surfaces will be disinfected between each program, including bathroom surfaces.

-If a student tests positive for Covid-19, they must inform the CTW teacher. Classes/rehearsals will immediately move to online and families will be notified so they may screen their students for symptoms. Classes will not resume in-person until two weeks after, provided the rest of the students do not show symptoms. If a teacher tests positive for Covid-19, all of that teacher’s classes will immediately move to online and the families will be notified so they may screen their students. Classes will not resume in-person until two weeks after, provided the rest of the students do not show symptoms. The teacher will not return to teaching in-person unless they are cleared to do so by their doctor. CTW may replace a teacher in the event they test positive for Covid-19, for the sake of the teacher and their students.

IMPORTANT: Classes will be held in-person if Lucas County business are permitted to stay open. If we are shut down, similar to March 2020, we will shift to online and complete the program virtually. 

*NEW* Fall 2020 Program Structure

Fall 2020 Theatre Program Adjustments

In order to accommodate for our Covid-19 guidelines, we are adjusting our Fall 2020 programs. Please read carefully so you are prepared to enroll in a program that is best suited for your family!

Theatre Classes, Rehearsals, and Performances

-Fall 2020 will have two sessions: Session #2 is October 19-December 11, 2020. Classes will not be held November 22-29, 2020 (Thanksgiving break for schools).

-Each Theatre Class is a cohort of 9 students and 1 teacher. This group of students will work together on theatre classes as well as rehearsal and performance of a short play. To emphasize: students will be working with the same group of young people for their classes AND performance. There will be no difference between class times and rehearsal times, it’s all together in a compressed format.

-Theatre Class plays will be selected after the classes starts, tailored to the size and interests of the group.

-Plays for Theatre Classes will be 5-10 minutes for ages 7-9, 10-15 minutes for ages 10-12, and 15-20 minutes for ages 13-17. Theatre Classes for 5-6 year olds will not have an official performance, but families will be notified of a small sharing at the end.

-Our script publishers have offered scripts that have an in-person performance OR virtual performance version. We will select scripts that can be flexible for our ever-changing situation, so the students’ rehearsals and productions can move to a virtual format if needed.

-Theatre Classes will be held outdoors on the lawn when weather permits. Students will not be required to wear masks when we are able to socially distance outdoors.

-Theatre Classes for Players (Ages 7-9), Ensemble (Ages 10-12), and Teen Company (ages 13-17) will meet for one hour, two times a week, for seven (7) weeks. These shorter processes allow CTW to move quickly if our Covid-19 situation changes. Some classes will be held in the afternoons, some in the evenings.

-We will offer a virtual-only Theatre Class: one for Players and one for Ensemble. These will also meet two times a week for seven weeks, in the afternoon, with a virtual performance of a script at the end. These classes are for families who, for any reason, will not be enrolling in an in-person class at this time. We have not yet determined the schedule for these; please stay tuned!

-Please note: Performances may be a wide spectrum of possibilities: in-person for a limited audience, live streamed from a streaming service with no audience, performed outdoors for a socially distanced audience, or recorded and released from a streaming service. We are designing the programs to be fully flexible and will be compelled to comply with Health Department guidelines at that time.  Session #2 will perform December 11-13, 2020.

Topics Classes (Devising, Musical Theatre, Technical Theatre)

-All of these classes are one hour, once a week.

-Devising will be no more than 9 students per class. There will be two devising classes offered, on Saturdays. These programs will devise short plays that we can use in later sessions.

-Musical Theatre classes will be no more than 9 students per class, for ages 9-12.

-Technical theatre class will be no more than 9 students per class, and will be held Wednesday afternoons.

Collective

-The Collective will not be restricted to the 7 week structure. It will meet August-January as in the previous year.

Creative and Brave Company

-The CBC will remain a free program for ages 13-17 and will meet Wednesdays. This will continue to be a school year-long program, concluding in April 2021.

Early Stages (Ages 5-6)

-Early Stages will meet Saturday mornings for 45 minutes at a time, and will have an informal sharing for their families at the end.
