About safety protocols at the “New Plays from the Heartland” auditions: You will wear your mask to auditions, check in, and get a clear mask/shield for auditioning when you arrive. Auditions are closed inside the theatre during auditions. Actors will wait to be called from the front lobby.
Once cast, and rehearsals are underway, the following protocols will apply:
We are following CDC masking guidelines, which are based on the COVID transmission level in McLean County:
- If the county transmission level is LOW, masks are optional.
- If the county transmission level is MEDIUM or HIGH, masks are required
We will go by whatever the transmission level is at the time of auditions.
Performances: July 15,16,17 – 2022
