South Carolina Children’s Theatre is committed to providing a safe space for all of our program participants. The health and well-being of our students, patrons and staff remain our top priority.
As we look toward the possibility of opening our brand new doors to theatre patrons, it’s important that you know how we’re working to keep you safe.
- All SCCT patrons, staff, students, volunteers and performers are required to wear a face mask inside our building. Patrons without a mask will be asked to leave the premises.
- If patrons or students are showing signs consistent with COVID-19, they are asked to please stay home and get well.
- Seating capacity at SCCT has been reduced to accommodate social distancing requirements recommended by the CDC and the SCDHEC.
- Classes are held in traditional and non-traditional classrooms, often at a reduced capacity, to allow for adequate social distancing.
- At this time, any shows will run without an intermission and no concessions will be offered.
- Surface disinfection will happen before and after every performance. Our theatre is sanitized with an electrostatic sprayer using an EPA-approved, food safe biocide—designed to kill coronavirus on surfaces within minutes.
- Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the lobby and backstage areas.
- Patrons are asked to maintain 6 feet of social distancing in the lobby, restrooms and theatre.
- Employees and volunteers are temperature checked before being admitted to the building. Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 or with a temperature of 100.4 or greater is required to remain at home.
SCCT relies on the generosity and support of our patrons and donors for the viability of our organization, and are now facing significant revenue losses due to cancellations. We humbly ask you to consider making a gift in support of SCCT – a gift that will be put to immediate use, ensuring we can keep staff employed and prepare to bring you back to the theatre once it is safe for us all to do that once again.
You, our patrons, are the lifeblood of SCCT, and we are grateful for your patience and ongoing support during this time. Please do everything you can to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
