COVID GUIDELINES: FALL 2022

Updated September 1, 2022

Our top priority is the health and safety of our volunteers, audiences, community, and staff. We meet regularly to review these guidelines and make any necessary adjustments. Keep reading for our current COVID policies for volunteering, seeing a show, or participating in educational programming.

General Guidelines for Visiting Live Arts:

If you are feeling sick OR have been exposed to COVID, please stay home. If you were planning to see a show, we will happily exchange your ticket for another performance at no additional cost!

Masks are encouraged in the Live Arts building and required in both theater spaces.

If you’re coming to see a show, please bring a mask with you! We ask that all audience members wear a mask over their nose and mouth while inside the Founders or Gibson Theater. This will help protect both audience and cast while gathering a large group in a small, enclosed space.

We encourage all members of our Live Arts community to stay up to date on your protection against the virus by getting the vaccine and booster shots when eligible.

Volunteers

Point of contact: Nick Hagy, Production Manager (nick@livearts.org)

Masks are optional during rehearsals, production meetings, and other volunteer activities, but may be required on a discretionary basis. Actors will not be masked during performances. 

Volunteers 18 and older who would like to participate in the cast or on the production team of a Live Arts show (i.e., actors, designers, stage managers, board operators, etc.) are required to provide proof of full vaccination. In accordance with latest guidance from the CDC, we also encourage all volunteers to stay up to date on their protection against the virus by getting booster shots when eligible. Actors who are rehearsing or performing unmasked will be required to follow a self-testing procedure as necessary. 

Volunteers under the age of 18 are not required to provide proof of full vaccination to participate in the cast or on the production team of a Live Arts show, however vaccination is strongly recommended. 

Other volunteer opportunities (set builds, costume sewing, administrative work, front of house, etc.) will not require proof of vaccination to participate.

Audience and Guests

Point of Contact: Anne Hunter, Executive Director (anne@livearts.org)

If you’re coming to see a show, please bring a mask with you! Masks are required inside the Founders Theater or Gibson Theater to help protect the cast and all audience members in attendance. 

Live Arts staff, cast, and production team members are fully vaccinated. Our actors will not be wearing masks onstage. If you forget your mask, we will be happy to provide one for you at no charge.

Proof of vaccination is no longer required for audience members.

CONCESSIONS:
No concessions (except water) are permitted inside the Founders Theater or Gibson Theater at this time. Concessions are available before the show and during intermission at the third floor Becker Bar. 

TICKET EXCHANGES:
If you are feeling sick or have potentially been exposed to COVID, please stay home. If you were planning to see a show, we will happily exchange your ticket for another performance at no additional cost. Just give us a call at 434-977-4177 or email Darryl in the Box Office at darryl@livearts.org

Education

Point of Contact: Ti Ames, Education Director (ti@livearts.org)

Certain classes may require masks during class, at the instructor’s discretion. Vaccination is strongly recommended for students, but not required.
