Village Theatre management is continually assessing the changes guidelines, including our cast, crew, and orchestra union guidelines, as well as local, state, and federal updates. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we continue to work to keep our artists, staff, volunteers, and patrons safe and healthy.
Effective June 27, 2023:
FOR CLASSES, CAMPS, AND INSTITUTE: Village KIDSTAGE strongly recommends but will no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative covid test for students in KIDSTAGE classes and camps.
In addition, masks will now be encouraged but optional for students in classes and camps.
FOR PRODUCTIONS: All participants (cast, crew, designers, directors) are required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or request a medical or religious exemption. Participants with a medical or religious exemption will be required to do additional antigen testing during the tech and performance phases of the process.
Rehearsals & Performances
When the Community Level is Low, masking is still required unless participants are actively rehearsing or performing as indicated by the production team. When the Community Level is Medium or High, masking is required at all times except while on stage during tech and performances.
Students working as run crew during tech and performances are required to wear masks at all times. When not working as run crew, all student technicians will follow our mask policies for the Tech Studios and costume shop when working in those spaces or with those technicians in a performance space. That policy is: Masks are required for Tech Studios staff in the theatre and backstage during load-in any day there is rehearsal in the building and during any notes taking place in the theatre before tech rehearsals. Masks are not required while loading and unloading trucks, or during strike or load-in when there is not also a rehearsal day.
KIDSTAGE audience mask policies will follow our Mainstage productions. Masks will be strongly encouraged but optional for most performances. We are also offering one or two performances that will remain fully masked for patrons that are not yet comfortable attending around unmasked audiences. That information is available on each show’s page on the Village Theatre website or directly from the box office.
If you have questions or concerns regarding information provided here or are faced with a hardship in meeting the requirements, please reach out to our COVID Safety Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work closely with KIDSTAGE staff to support students and families through this process.
Students/parents should complete the Vaccination Documentation form before attending your first rehearsal. If you wish to request a medical or religious exemption, please email our HR Manager Nikki Singh at email@example.com
