Our COVID-19 response
MYT is following all City of Milwaukee COVID protocols. We will, when possible, proceed with in-person classes and productions for 2022.
In Milwaukee we have seen COVID cases reduce and flatten in February. I want to both be sensitive to outbreaks while also keeping in mind what we saw in our students while in lock-down; an increase in anxiety and depression. Virtual interactions can never replace real, face-to-face connection. MYT will, when possible, proceed with all classes and productions for 2022.
Concerning classes and workshops
The class sizes will remain small, the spaces we inhabit will remain large for social distancing and we will enforce mask wearing for unvaccinated participants.
Cast sizes will remain small 8-12, the rehearsal space will be large to accommodate social distancing, cast and production teams will be masked as much as possible during all rehearsals and meetings, mask wearing for the audience is optional but highly recommended for unvaccinated and at-risk individuals.
Responsible to parents, students and our community
We were able to produce The Hobbit in November following CDC protocols with great success. While we had some colds and flus we experienced no COVID outbreaks. Because MYT believes that it is our responsibility to look out for the emotional, social and physical well being of our children, all of our staff working with students are vaccinated.
As a parent, I understand the concerns and worries that come with that. Meeting our children’s various needs sometimes feels like an impossible task. MYT wants to partner with parents and help as much and as safely as we can. We are currently looking for ways to increase our outdoor offerings this spring and summer.
