This is our first year performing a musical during a pandemic.
While restrictions have been lifted for most COVID protection measures
within all venues and schools, I – Mr. TdS, the music teacher at Second
Street – will be doing my best to provide as safe an event as possible
for our students while keeping it as “ordinary” as possible.
Below are some considerations you may wish to take into personal consideration
for this year’s musical:
- While I understand that most people aren’t masking in their day-to-day
lives anymore, audience members are encouraged to wear a mask during the
show if they are willing and able to put one on for an hour. There is
often not room for social distancing in this venue and our music teacher
is living with someone who is recovering from a cancer surgery in the
weeks preceding the show.
- We ask that you avoid coming to a watch a show if you are sick.
- We ask
that you not send sick students to perform in shows. For our actors, we
have made sure to double every role so that there are multiple understudies
in case of illness.
- Our gym
has a new air filtration system that was installed by the government during
- We will
be bringing HEPA filters in from our classrooms to provide filtration
in some locations during the show.
- Venue doors
will remain open during the show (this is also useful as June is hotter).
who wear masks to school are welcome to continue wearing masks while performing
during the show if they would like.
-If you are
immune-compromised, consider attending a matinee show (1pm) if you are
able to. In previous years, evening shows are usually more crowded.
