We believe performing arts can be safe AND fun!

We are envisioning OFC Creations in a way that allows us to continue providing an impactful and creative outlet for your talented children as well as give a quality performance for our loyal audiences. 


First and foremost, we want you to know we are looking out for our students, audiences, and staff and want to keep them safe. However... we know that performing should be fun!

We know your visit this year will be different. But together, we can find new ways to enjoy inspiring moments and create memories to last a lifetime.

Please see our full response to COVID-19 along with our plan for keeping everyone safe by downloading our Fun & Safety Plan.

Key Points
 

  • Since reopening our doors in July of 2020 we have had over 2,000 students through our doors rehearsing, performing, and learning theatre with NO covid related issues. We believe we will have just the same safety success with live in person audiences as well.
     

  • New York State recently announced live public theatre events can reopen starting April 2nd, 2021. Following NYS and CDC detailed guidelines all OFC events will be limited to 100 attendees with social distancing between parties, the theatre center is HEPA filtrated, masks are currently required throughout center except while eating/drinking, attendees will have at least 2-4 seats between them and another party, when possible attendees will receive "their own" row in the center, food/bar service will be brought to attendees seats to limit congestion at the bar, a thorough cleaning and disinfecting of full center before and after event, and hand sanitizer stations are positioned throughout center. If reserved seating is required, assigned seats will be given to audience members upon arrival.
     

  • In many of our shows, students and performers will wear masks as the #1 preventative measure to stop the spread of COVID-19
     

  • Where possible, performers may remove their mask to perform if they are: More than 12-feet apart, vaccinated, and/or tested negative for COVID within 72-hours of the performances
     

  • In certain situations, soloists or featured characters may wear a faceshield instead of the cloth mask to enhance the quality of the performance
     

  • Behind the scenes actors and crew members are wearing masks and frequently washing hands. Disinfecting shared areas is a top priority of our team. Actors will not share microphone elements
     

  • In our educational programs, students will be kept in smaller group sizes of 15-22 students per group. Certain programs, including dance classes and pint sized performers classes, the group sizes will be smaller. We expect by summer camps for all group sizes to increase.
     

  • Please note, currently masks are being worn 99% of the time in rehearsals and classes. Masks are only taken off for staggered socially distant water breaks, lunches etc. Performances may be handled slightly differently as indicated above
     

  • We are super excited to share that the OFC Creations Theatre Center is now equipped with HEPA filters to help battle the spread of COVID-19!
     

  • The fun and safety plan can be updated and changed at any time! As NYS gives us more guidance, we will share it with you! We expect another update to come around May/June
