Social Distance Saturdays

Taught by Amanda Klinikowski

Come play fun and socially distanced theatre games with Amanda on ACT’s Mainstage!

The safety of all students and teachers is important to ACT. Masks will be required at all times during the class and everyone will remain socially distanced for all games while inside on the ACT Mainstage with added ventilation. Parents are asked to remain in their cars nearby for the duration of class. We ask that all students arrive 10-15 minutes before their class time to accommodate temperature checks. This class is in-person, with no virtual option. If your child is medically unable to wear a mask for 50 minutes, please check out one of ACT’s many virtual class options instead!

Current sessions have pivoted to meet virtually rather than in-person. Current sessions end December 19, 2020. Additional sessions TBA.

Masks at Asheville Community Theatre: Education Programming

In order to create a safe and equitable environment for everyone participating and leading educational classes or events on ACT grounds, all individuals will be required to wear masks over their mouth and nose at all times. If a student, patron, or participant does not have a mask, one will be provided. If an individual is unable to wear a mask, alternative virtual options are available. We thank you for your support as we work to keep our family, and yours, as safe as possible.
