COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES
We will be following all Bend-La Pine, ODE and OSAA COVID-19 safety guidelines. Rehearsals will take place virtually when possible and in-person rehearsals will be podded, masked and social distanced when indoors and all music rehearsals will take place outdoors with social distancing. During filming, only one singer will be unmasked at a time, with all doors and vents open in the Auditorium with a minimal sound, lighting and film crew all masked and at a greater than 10 ft distance from the singer. There will be no sharing of costumes or props. Production elements will be minimized with a focus on performance and storytelling at the heart of the production.
TRUST is incredibly important for this to work. It will be the responsibility of all members of the production to practice safe social distancing, masking and hygiene protocols during the length of rehearsals and filming. Anyone feeling unwell should remain home until a negative COVID-19 test is confirmed or symptoms have abated for more than 24 hours. Anyone who has traveled out of state or has had a possible exposure to someone testing positive for COVID-19 will be expected to quarantine for 10 days and be sure they are symptom free for 24 hours or produce a negative COVID-19 test before returning to rehearsal/filming. Anyone that is discovered as participating in high-risk activities where social distancing and masking are not being adhered to MAY be removed from the production. Safety is our highest priority!
Production will be streamed June 11th & 12th @ 7 pm
