Academy Premiere Theatre Training Program

Bay Area Children’s Theatre Academy is keeping a close eye on COVID statistics and
will continue to update protocols as needed to protect our community. As of September 21st,
2022, we have enacted the following safety protocols for classes:

All participants who attend class do so at their own risk. No refunds will be given in the
event of a participant testing positive for COVID.

BACT Staff & Artists

All current staff and artists are fully vaccinated. All actors are “up-to-date” with vaccinations including booster shots. We also strongly encourage all participants, employees, renters and visitors of BACT ages 5+ to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and suggest the booster for those eligible.

BACT's Berkeley Theater

Colorful Bay Area Children's Theatre Sign
At this time our season is planned to be exclusively in our indoor Berkeley theatre space. In addition to having a strict covid policy in place, we have renovated our heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system to increase airflow and circulation throughout our theatre.
In addition to this, we also disinfect all surfaces in our lobby twice per show (before the lobby opens and during the show). We also disinfect the seats in our theater after every show.  
We understand that things happen and plans change. So we make it easy for audience members by having a  flexible ticket policy that allows families to reschedule tickets without extra fees or hassle.
We are committed to the health and safety of our audience members and staff and will continue to monitor state guidelines and CDC recommendations for the best protocols to make your theatre-going experience enjoyable and safe.
