COVID-19 PLAN

The health and safety of our participants, staff, volunteers, and our audience is our number one priority. In these uncertain times, we need to be proactive in our planning, to both ensure the health and safety of all involved, and to continue to create an innovative, educational, and exciting program. We have developed three plans for the season that take into account a variety of possibilities. All plans will follow all AHS Guidelines, which will be updated as the guidelines change. Below are the three main plans we have in place, which can change as the situation dictates. Additional plans could come into play depending on the situation. We will take every precaution that we can, and participation will be dependent on each participants level of comfort.  

PLAN A- IN PERSON/ZOOM REHEARSALS, WITH A LIVE AUDIENCE

  • REGISTRATION: No more than 15 participants per age group. This number could go up if AHS Guidelines change. 

  • REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will take place in person or over Zoom, and maintain all recommended AHS Guidelines for performance. A complete list of rehearsal protocols will be released in August 2020.

  • PERFORMANCES: We will perform for a live audience, however, the size of our audience will be determined by AHS Guidelines.

PLAN B- IN PERSON/ZOOM REHEARSALS, WITHOUT A LIVE AUDIENCE

  • REGISTRATION: No more than 15 participants per age group. This number could go up if AHS Guidelines change. 

  • REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will take place in person or over Zoom, and maintain all recommended AHS Guidelines for performance. A complete list of rehearsal protocols will be released in August 2020.

  • PERFORMANCES: If we are unable to perform in front of a live audience, due to AHS Guidelines, we will then arrange to either film our performance and release it on our website, or stream it live to be viewed on our website. This will only be possible if actors/crew are able to meet safely in person.

PLAN C- FEATURE FILM

If AHS Guidelines change, and we are no longer safely permitted to meet in person, we will transition to the production of a feature film, based on Romeo and Juliet. This movie would be filmed on location in and around Red Deer, and central Alberta. A film would allow us to maintain physical distancing, reduce the amount of participants needed at any given time, and would be done to industry standards. With a completion goal of May 2021, our movie would be available to stream on our website, and other streaming platforms. 

The above three plans are not guaranteed and are subject to change, but they do give us a good starting place. We hope that we can go forward with Plan A, however, we have Plan B and C in place just in case. We will adjust when needed, and our primary goal will always remain to ensure the helth and safety of eveyone involved in Tree House Youth Theatre.
