COVID-19 Precautions

The Royal Canadian Theatre Company will be following Provincial Health guidelines with three approaches:

  1.  Practising Social Distancing:
    • All seating in the green room will be socially distanced.
    • There are physically distanced circles in the actual audition room for you to keep your distance for yourself or if auditioning with a partner.
  2. Using the Outdoors:
    • Because people will be congregated in our green room, we will be opening our garage door to give more space and fresh air to all applicants.
  3.  Masks and hand sanitizer:
    • We do recommend everyone coming to the audition wears a mask in the green room as that will be the busiest area.
    • We have both hand sanitizer and an area to wash your hands whenever needed.
