It is the CTC’s mission to provide high-quality theatre experiences and opportunities to engage in them, but we must balance that priority with the safety interests of our patrons, volunteers, students, and staff. We are committed to the health and well-being of all members of the CTC family and to mitigating the spread of the virus in our community.
Based on the recommendations and policies of local, state, and national officials, and our own commitment to you, there are no firm dates for our upcoming season. Our team is continually assessing when it will be appropriate for all of us to come together again, and we are planning for how we can do so responsibly when that time comes.
The current public health threat requires all of us to adapt to new procedural and behavioral norms. As such, we are taking a phased approach to reopening–after closing our doors on March 13–while adhering to the highest standards of public safety.
As they become available, you’ll find full details about how we’re going to do that on this page. It is a work in progress, as the response to the current crisis is constantly evolving, but we will provide you with more information about how we’re making your safety at the CTC our top priority.
The CTC is pleased to offer our popular Summer Academy with strict accommodations and in an abbreviated format. To ensure the health and safety of our students and staff, our Summer Academy has been adapted to a one-month program of half-day sessions at limited capacity. Class sizes are limited to 10 for each session, with no interaction between classes. Grades 4 and up only to ensure physical distancing.
The following procedures will be followed:
Admission to the Summer Academy is by reservation only. Because schedules may be subject to change, advance reservations are required but fee payments will not be due until the first day of class.
The CTC is pleased to offer a new learning opportunity in our first-ever Adult Academy. To ensure the health and safety of our students and staff, several safety protocols will be in effect.
Safety measures will include:
NOTE: If circumstances make it necessary that we revisit our policies, procedures, and scheduling, we will do so, with the safety and well-being of our CTC family our top priority.
