Theatre Camp and COVID-19:

After having to cancel Theatre Camp 2020, we are excited to be back! The last year has been full of uncertainty and change, and throughout the last academic year we at Corban Theatre have been doing our best to innovate and keep going strong in the midst of the health-crisis. As with our university productions, we have had to take a hard look at how we do Theatre Camp, question past practices, and figure out how to create a safe and healthy environment that is also fun and educational for our students.

Here’s a bit about the changes we are making to keep your students and households safe. Please keep in mind that we will be adjusting camp behaviors and requirements based on changing state mandates.

  • Groups will be limited to 10 campers each, maximum.
  • Social distancing will be enforced, and we will use only classrooms with a socially-distanced room capacity of 12 or more people. We will also work outside when feasible.
  • Masks will be required masks in the classrooms, and either masks or special acting hoods will be required on the stage.
  • Camper temperatures will be taken daily at check-in.
    • Note: Campers demonstrating symptoms of illness will be asked to stay home. We will do all we can to accommodate these students via Zoom until they are symptom-free. Students who are absent more than three days will need to withdraw from camp.
  • Due to current research on transmission, we will probably not be singing.
  • Appropriate disinfecting measures will be observed throughout the camp.
  • Depending on crowd limits, recital guests may be limited in number. We may adopt a multi-recital format in lieu of a mass performance.
