We hope you are all staying safe and well with you and your loved ones. The staff here at GBSC has been hard at work developing plans and modes of operation to help keep amazing theatre education possible here in Stoneham.
We are writing to keep you all updated on the happenings with The Young Company as they stand today: May 5, 2020. Please note: we are constantly monitoring the situation locally and nationally. As such, all information is subject to change.
Spring classed cancelled.
All Spring Acting Classes and The Theatre Club were cancelled for the Spring 2020 semester.
Voice Lessons have continued in an online format.
We are excited to be able to support our students and instructors in online lessons. If you are interested in joining, please let us know! New flexible time slots have opened up.
Spring Shakespeare continues on in an online format!
Spring Shakespeare moved to an online format. Our students and staff are hard at work staging a full online production to be shared virtually. Be on the lookout for that performance as well as a fully staged performance as soon as we are all able to meet!
Summer Festival 2020 has been cancelled.
All students registered have been emailed with 3 options
We do miss you all very much. While we wish we could be performing with you all spring and summer, right now our focus has to be on the health and safety of all. Good theatre makes good people, and being a good person right now entails practicing social distancing, staying home, and finding ways to help those around you.
While this is the end of Summer Festival 2020 in its current structure, we are carefully monitoring the situation each week to determine if there is a way to safely provide some adapted (albeit much smaller) forms of programming towards the end of summer. We are exploring online programs but wanted to give our students and artists time to wrap up school and existing web-based programs before we roll out anything new.
The Young Company will be back as soon as we can. Summer 2020 marks our 20th anniversary and we have big plans to keep us around for 20 more years!
See you soon and please reach out if you need anything,
Tyler and Ceit
