COVID-19 UPDATES

As of June 7th, 2020 and pending additional guidance from the Governor and the CDC, Gateway to the Arts 2020 is ON!!!! 

 

A few things to note: 

  • Musical Munchkins (ages 5 to 8) is cancelled. 

    • We felt it best to cancel this age group completely. While it was a difficult decision, we felt this group was of greatest concern.

    • Refunds will be issued within the next few days. 

    • We plan on having something special for this age group at a later date. 

 

  • Rising Stars and Shining Stars will still continue with their respective shows. 

 

  • Final Productions: 

    • All final productions will be filmed and broadcast. 

 

  • All sessions will begin on July 6th. 

 

  • Refer to the Revised Calendar, as groups will be formed and will have shortened rehearsal time. The expectation is that students will only be called when they are needed, and will work  on learning and memorizing their material from home. This allows us to ensure proper social distancing. 

 

  • Final groups will be determined once the show is cast, after auditions. 

 

  • Auditions will be moving to a virtual platform. You will receive a link to upload an audition video. Videos must be received by June 25th. A cast list will then be posted. 

 

  • Review the proposed safety plan. There will be more protocols in place as we receive more guidance. 

 

  • We are asking for flexibility, as we navigate through this unprecedented time. This is uncharted territory for all of us; however, all decisions will follow the guidelines from the CDC and the Governor with student and staff safety as our main priority.

 

  • We understand that the pandemic has impacted people differently, therefore should you feel it is not an appropriate time for your child to participate, please email phil@gatewaybythebay.org and a full refund will be issued.
