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 May 20th,
2022, we have enacted the following safety protocols for summer camps:

  •  Although mask mandates have been lifted, Bay Area Children’s Theatre still strongly recommends that all participants wear masks while inside, especially while singing. We encourage participants to wear a face mask at all times, with the exception of eating, drinking, and outdoor activities, and strongly suggest that participants put masks back on correctly immediately after being outside.
  • Students and staff will stay at least 6 feet apart from each other as much as possible. Maintaining 6 feet of distance is the best way to protect oneself from others, even when no
    symptoms are present. However, this will not always be possible in class.
  • Staff use EPA-approved wipes to routinely disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, tabletops, sink handles, etc.
  • Everyone must wash their hands routinely for at least 20 seconds using warm water and soap available in the facility restrooms before and after eating, after using the restroom, and after touching commonly touched surfaces.
  • Feeling Sick? Stay Home We ask that families take a moment each day to confirm that participants do not have symptoms before coming to camp. Participants exhibiting symptoms will not be allowed to attend class/camp/rehearsal in person until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours and can provide a negative COVID test.
  • What if my class in canceled? In the unlikely event that we are not able to safely provide an in-person camp experience due to an increase in COVID numbers, all current programs will move to virtual offerings.
    ● In the event that camps which have not started must be canceled, tuition may be
    converted to credit for a future camp or class.
    ● No refunds will be given in the event of camps being canceled for COVID-related
    BACT will continue to use data reported by the Alameda County Public Health Department and other sources to make these determinations.

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.
