  • Broadway's Year Long Intermission

    Here we are, one full year without Broadway due to COVID-19. But we have not been without creativity, collaboration, and community from theatre working professionals and fans around the world. As heartbreaking as it was to watch show after show close, some for good and some temporarily, the theatre community has stuck together. Various Broadway staples created opportunities to share established as well as new talent with the world such as Laura Benanti's "Sunshine Songs" or Seth Rudetsky's "Stars in the House". The Actors' Fund brought us parody entertaiment and cast reunions from some of the most popular shows. Creatives were quick to jump to social media to show support for other artists to take the plunge and share their own art for the time publically. Our community helped show the world the power of supporting each other with kindness and positivity even as it seemed our worlds were crashing down around us. With the West Ends's announcement for re-opening in April 2021, it gives hope to a return to pre-pandemic life. COVID safety protocols will be in place to ensure social disancing and requiring masks. After this year of not being able to watch a performance live and not on a screen, I would personally be happy to climb into a plastic bubble if it was required to see a live show. One thing we have all learned this year is to take more control over our art. There was a huge explosion of self creation, whether shared publically or not. The whole world turned to art for comfort when we were told to shelter in place and completely uproot our routines. It's re-emergence calls for a celebration (safely). In the uncharted territory or a global pandemic, we cared for one another and will continue to do so after this. The house lights are flickering to tell us, theatre is coming back SOON!

  • COVID Safety | Camp YATC

    YATC & COVID-19 In light of COVID-19, our team is currently hard at work making thorough plans to determine every detail of how our programs will be structured in order to run safely. The physical safety of our campers has always been and will continue to be our utmost priority. ​ The California Department of Public Health announced on March 11 that residential camps will be able to re-open starting June 1, 2021! As part of our planning process we are collaborating with the CDC and CDPH to ensure we develop our protocols in line with their recommendations and requirements. The CDPH will release guidelines for residential camps in April 2021, which we will also follow closely. ​ We have developed extensive guidelines to proactively create safe programs by limiting the spread of communicable disease. These guidelines have all been created with our COVID Task Force, a team of experts advising us on best practices. All practices were developed to meet or exceed guidelines put forth by the the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and will include the CDPH guidelines as well. All staff will be trained to identify COVID-19 symptoms and respond. Any camper or staff who presents COVID-19 symptoms will be taken to our quarantine space. We will conduct a COVID-19 test, and the family of the camper will immediately be contacted by one of the camp directors, who will share the plan for testing and treatment. We will perform contact tracing and will quarantine and test any close contacts of the affected individual. ​ We know that you will have questions and rather than trying to list all the details here, we’d love to have a chat with you and your family about our plans and also answer any questions or address any concerns that we may still need to take into consideration. ​ ​ Camp Chats! Come to the CAMP CHAT to Discuss Summer ANY Thurs day (5pm PST) or ANY Saturday (10am PST) ! We would love the chance to chat with you about the Award Winning and unparalleled experience that your camper will receive at the Young Actors’ Theatre Camp and answer all your questions. We would love to meet you on Zoom for an Informal Chat about The Young Actors’ Theatre Camp. We will briefly tell you about our plans and take ALL of your questions. If you are brand new to YATC, this is a great chance to meet and chat with our Directors and have all of your very important questions answered. ​ To Reserve a Spot in this Chat, Please Email Info @CampYATC.com with "RESERVE" in the Subject Line.
