Your safety is our priority. We are taking a cautious leap with our production of “All Together Now,” keeping in mind how it affects our community and local hospitals.
To protect our auditionees, performers, creatives, and crew, everyone involved in the production is required to be fully vaccinated before rehearsals begin. Since we know that the Delta variant can cause breakthroughs even if a person has been vaccinated, other precautions are also in place. Most songs are solos so rehearsals will be held in small groups. Masking will be required when not actively singing. Distancing will also be an important element of protection and blocking/choreography will ensure that on and offstage movement keeps people as far apart as possible.
If, at any point, the Theatre Bristol Board of Directors determines that it is not prudent to proceed with the production, the show will be cancelled.
