COVID 19 Policy

Actors will be asked to wear masks during rehearsals. When the audience is present, audience members will not be able to wear masks while eating or drinking.  The venue, however, has very high ceilings which provide more air circulation than most venues. Mask should be worn when possible since Covid 19 is still present throughout communities in New Jersey.
