Yes, all our events are in accordance with governmental guidelines and have been reviewed by UCalgary Risk Management and Insurance.

We are taking all necessary precautions, going above and beyond the guidelines set by the Government of Alberta. Examples include:

  • Small audience size: the gathering restriction set by the government is 100 people maximum for indoor seated/audience events. We have limited our audiences to 55 people;
  • Audience members will be seated at least 2m physically distanced from others, and at least 3m distanced from the performers;
  • There is a staggered entry/exit process for audience members
  • For the safety of our campus community, everyone (including the director, designers, technicians, audience members) is required to wear masks in our venues.
  • Small cast productions to allow for physical distancing:  one actress for Jawbone, two performers and one percussionist for Just Like The Moon
  • To avoid gathering places, there is no coat check, no intermission or breaks and no concession.

Our main focus is our students and their experience, not revenue generation. The MFA in Drama is a thesis-based program. In order to complete their academic program, directing students have to direct a full-length play and submit a supporting paper; design/technical students have to design of a full-length production in two of set, costume, light and/or sound, and submit a supporting paper. We are fortunate to have technical staff available to assist our students with their required research.

No, every audience member needs to be preregistered and have a ticket BEFORE coming to our venues. There are no door sales or walk ups allowed.

Anyone can REQUEST a ticket.

Capacity depends on the venue and production, but will be 55 or less.

To increase the safety of everyone, we have decided to seat all audience members separately, as our front of house staff cannot tell who is part of the same cohort.
