Dear LCT Family,
We could not be more grateful for your outpouring of love and support for Lexington Children’s Theatre since the start of the COVID19 pandemic. As we open our doors with in-person classes and performances, we are implementing safety procedures across all programming. We ask that you help us keep our community safe by abiding by these policies any time you visit us.
We will continue to communicate any changes as they happen and will also continue to be innovative as we work to ensure that our #LCTFamily can experience the joy of live theatre as safely as possible! Please consider a donation to LCT so we can continue to make that happen at https://www.lctonstage.org/support-us/give-online/.
General Building Safety
Masks are required in the building at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must cover mouth and nose. (The only exception is infants under 2 years of age.) Guests who are not willing to comply with this guideline will be asked to leave the premises.
Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the building.
All LCT staff members are fully vaccinated, and temperature check daily.
Audience capacity for Shoyu Tell and The Little Mermaid has been reduced by 50%. Seats will be sold in alternating rows, with one seat between each party.
LCT is moving to contactless/paperless ticketing and playbills. Your ticket confirmation email will have all the information you need to check in at the doors, no physical tickets required!
LCT’s Main Stage will open 30 minutes prior to show time. We ask that patrons arrive no earlier than 30 minutes prior to showtime and plan on going directly to their seats.
Actors will not do meet and greets after shows. Patrons are asked not to linger in the lobby after the conclusion of the performance.
The Main Stage, all first-floor restrooms, and all high touch areas will be sanitized after every performance. Restrooms on the second and third floors will also be available.
School Matinee Performances
All patrons, including students, teachers, chaperones, and aides must be masked at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must cover mouth and nose. (The only exception is infants under 2 years of age.) Guests who are not willing to comply with this guideline will be asked to leave the premises and wait with the school bus.
Audience capacity for Shoyu Tell and The Little Mermaid are reduced by 50%. Groups will be seated by school, with empty seats around each classroom.
Students and teachers will remain on their buses until an LCT staff member lets them know it is time to enter the theatre.
Teachers will be able to seat their students in the Main Stage as necessary, with LCT staff assistance. We ask that teachers seat students first, then exit with 2-3 people at a time to use restrooms as necessary.
Teacher packets, educational play guides, and payment receipts will be delivered electronically.
The Main Stage, all first-floor restrooms, and all high touch areas will be sanitized after every performance.
In-School Touring Performances
All Touring Company members follow LCT’s “Safe at Work” guidelines include mandatory face coverings including during the performance, maintaining 6 feet of distance from the audience while performing, daily temperature checks, and submitting the results of periodic COVID tests.
Actors will be fully vaccinated at the time of their tour. All set, props, costumes, and transportation will be thoroughly sanitized daily.
When in performances, LCT will follow all CDC, State, and County mandated safety measures for audiences and performers. LCT performers will also follow any additional individual school guidelines regarding COVID safety.
Theatre School Classes
All in-person classes will require students to be masked and socially distanced.
Temperature checks will be performed on arrival.
All high touch areas will be sanitized after every class.
School Cancellation Policy
Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, LCT is relaxing our school cancellation policies for the 2021-2022 Season. All in-person programming (field trip matinees, tour performances, etc.) may be altered or cancelled up to seven days prior to the date of service without financial repercussions. After that deadline, in-person programming may not be cancelled, but may be rescheduled to a later date at any time. All virtual programming may be rescheduled at any time, or cancelled and transferred to an LCT credit to be used for future bookings. Refunds are not available for virtual programming at this time.
If school is cancelled on the day of your programming due to a force majeure event (weather, COVID19 cases, etc), we will work with you to reschedule to a future date. If rescheduling is impossible after exhausting all avenues, then we will not hold you responsible for the amount invoiced.
Public Ticket Cancellation Policy
Tickets for any of our in-person public performances may be exchanged to another performance of the same show, or a different show this season, at any time before the date of the performance. Tickets may also be cancelled and transferred to an online LCT credit that can be used to purchase future tickets and classes. Call or email our Box Office at (859) 254-4546 x245 or email@example.com and we will be happy to take care of that for you! Refunds are not available for non-members.
LCT Members can request a refund for any unused tickets in their account at the end of the 2021-2022 season. Call or email our Box Office at (859) 254-4546 x245 or firstname.lastname@example.org after May 8, 2022, and we can process it for you!
