Please note that should the Academy workshop programs be unable to proceed in-person due to mandatory Health Canada COVID-19 regulations, we will be prepared to pivot to an online program, utilizing the same shows, which will run virtually. We regret that we are unable to offer refunds should this situation occur, but will, as always, do everything in our power to make our programs magical and exciting within the given COVID-19 restrictions. Thank you for your understanding, and for helping our company continue to be able to offer epic programs for years to come.
Covid Safety at the Academy:
~ Costumes: Each student will receive a t-shirt, which is theirs to keep, and be asked to wear their own black pants and shoes from home. Each student will have a chance to add exciting pieces from our costume collection to their ensemble, which will be carefully washed and only worn by them.
~ Microphones: We will not be using individual hand-held microphones this year, but will amplify the show through floor and ceiling mics placed around the stage.
~ Large, ventilated space with limited participants: We will keep safe distances between students in our large, ventilated theatre, and will limit numbers of participants to Health Canada guidelines.
~ Participants will sit in the audience, and not in the small dressing room, during performances.
~ Final performances will be limited to audience sizes recommended by Health Canada, and we will revert to video taping the final performances if live performances are not possible.
~ Sanitizing: Academy staff will carefully and thoroughly clean and sanitize all high-traffic surfaces.
~ Daily Covid checks for all staff and students
~ We will continue to monitor and adhere to all Health Canada guidelines as they are announced.
Our goal is to keep each other safe – we are fully committed to this!
