Theatre & the COVID Classroom
Following University, state, and national health organizations’ regulations,
we are conducting our actor training in a hybrid structure. A majority
of classes are being held in-person and on-campus with social distancing,
face masks, and additional cleaning measures. All classes conducted
in studios comply with regulations on the number of participants
allowed in the space. Some classes are being held outdoors in tents.
Some classes are finding success being partially, or even entirely, online.
We anticipate continuing this approach through Spring of 2021 and will adapt as
new information and research is developed regarding the pandemic.
