#SAFESPOT • The Spot has been committed to upholding the highest standards of safety during COVID-19. Young Company members and faculty wore masks for the entirety of the production. Rehearsal spaces were disinfected between every rehearsal. The whole ensemble was never in the building at the same time. The maximum number of personnel and students in the space at any given time was 6. The Spot uses Quaternary Sanitizer and Xforce to disinfect all surfaces, door handles, bathrooms, set structures, costumes and properties. Scenic elements were limited and personal effects were contained to individual garment bags. Sanitizing and/or hand washing was encouraged at the top and tail of every rehearsal, and mandatory before making any contact with scene partner. Distanced staging was used as often as possible.

We are proud to report no incidences of exposure or virus transmission at The Spot.

This is an educational, tuition-free program and benefit virtual production.
