Covid Plan - Elite Intermediate
This information is for those who are booked to attend our LIVE programs at Marquee.
If you are signed up for a virtually taught program/lesson, you will have a different outline there are no safety issues with your program. Only technical updates.
Marquee’s Board had made a policy to follow YRDSB protocols.
As they are not permitting singing in school, this means Marquee will also not be permitting singing in our classes ON SITE.
What does this mean?
While wearing masks, we can still have our classes live at Marquee to teach acting, blocking and dancing at Marquee. Only singing is the tricky part.
We have a few options/back up plans as to how to handle this
We are not sure where we will be in January when we start this program in terms of being able to sing inside. We are currently not permitted to do so. So with the current info in mind, we will start the program by teaching vocals online via Zoom and in the comfort of your own homes. THIS IS ONLY FOR VOCALS. Once the weather starts to get a little warmer, we will sing outside at the back of our property, where we have singing all summer long, under an open-side tent. We have also been recording the vocals back there. It works very well!
We will ask that you be sure to use the vocal tracks to become familiar with melodies and lyrics. We will teach you harmonies and eventually put it all together.
AGAIN this is the plan ONLY FOR SINGING and only until we are notified that we can return to singing at Marquee. All other components will be taught LIVE at Marquee.
It looks much brighter for your program that are slated to perform in May 2021. We will keep you up to date on this as we receive the info ourselves.
One thing we have learned since last spring and over the summer, is that we do NOT have to cancel a program or performance this time.
Our plan for term 2, is to use a green screen to record in front of as we teach and, to make the footage so that, in the event of a theatre closure, we will have your hard work captured on film.
This will be our back up just in case the theatre is forced to close as we get closer to the time of your show. If it doesn’t close and we can actually perform your show, then you will have had a wonderful experience in rehearsal
With these measures in place we are able to fulfill the program and a performance with a souvenir for you to keep.

Please just ask if you have any questions at all.
