Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) is a style of theatrical performance where actors perform plays specifically for a young (preschool/elementary) audience. Actors utilize every method of acting from physical theatre to puppetry, improvisation to pantomime, and even music and dance. Acting in TYA shows is “larger than life”, and so much fun to perform!

We take the Covid-19 pandemic very seriously. Having spoken with doctors and health professionals, we feel confident that our protocol provides us the ability to keep our children and staff as safe and healthy as possible. Our goal is to provide a safe space for children to learn, grow, and have fun...a bit of normalcy in the midst of the pandemic.
--All staff and children wear masks when they are at TAP. On the first day of class/rehearsal, the children are taught how to properly wear their masks to ensure maximum benefit. Masks are available for children who need a new one or arrive to TAP without one. We also have mask straps for children who have a difficult time getting their mask to fit, anti-fog for children with glasses, and filters. Our goal is to help make their masks as comfortable as possible so they are less likely to fidget with them.
--Sanitizer is placed in multiple locations around the studio so that is easily accessible whenever a child feels the need to sanitize. They sanitize anytime they touch their face or mask.
--We disinfect TAP Studios with CDC-approved cleaners diligently and frequently each day.
--When the children arrive to TAP, they have their temperatures taken outside before they enter the building, using a forehead thermometer. Children with temperatures over 100 are asked to leave. They then immediately wash their hands before entering the studio.
--Spots are marked on the floor where children can sit/stand during activities, and while blocking onstage. Children are taught the "2 arms-length" rule to help with distancing. When children get too close to a friend, we use "TAP back!" to remind them to distance.
--Materials for activities are not shared. Props are sanitized before and after usage.
