CAMPS

COVID Policy and Mask Wearing at Marquee
Masks are currently optional with the understanding that should things start to spike again, or we hit another wave, or the government makes masks mandated again, that we reserve the right to make them mandatory at Marquee at any time.

As we are singing, and dancing and loudly projecting our voices, this setting pushes the air around more than it would normally in most other setting.  Our goal is to keep people safe.

If the participant is showing any signs of fever, covid symptoms, or if a student feels unwell, please do NOT come to a live class. Please DO call or email our office to inform us about this. If there are siblings who is also attend our programming, as they would have been exposed, we ask that they attend class virtually until we know if it’s a positive covid case or not. 

If you have a positive test result, please isolate for 5 days and monitor your symptoms until they are all gone, with the exception of a cough as that can sometimes linger on for months. If after 5 isolation days your symptoms are gone, you do not need a negative test result to return, as the positive result can also linger on for a while. YOU ARE THE BEST JUDGE.

Masks will be optional for the performances, UNLESS the theatre makes it mandated (not likely). We can't control what they decide to do.

Children’s Summer & March Break Camps and Teen Summer Spotlight.

Children receive instruction in acting, singing, dancing and stage movement. This summer our camps are held live at our studio or online – it’s your choice.  Each program culminates in a musical theatre performance that will be performed outside for family and friends to enjoy.

Some of the benefits of our musical theatre programs include an increase in self-confidence, learning to work as a team, learning goal setting, an increase in communication skills and learning responsibility. There IS homework involved in theatre but our homework is FUN homework.

Marquee’s camp staff consists of professionally trained adults, university/college students, high school graduates and high school students.
