COVID Safety: Per guidance from Actors Equity Association, the Old Globe will require all eligible individuals within the Production Group to be fully vaccinated to participate in How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. The Production Group is defined as: All actors, creative team members, and crew who interact with the Production Group within Globe spaces. For those who are not eligible or whom have a medical or religious exemption: these individuals must adhere to weekly PCR testing and all mitigation measures, including masking, that are advised at the time of rehearsal/production. Please note that for these auditions we are requiring all actors attending to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The door monitor will be checking vaccination status, so please provide your vaccination card, or a photograph of your card. You may also submit a photo of your vaccination card with your request for an audition.
Special Note: The rehearsal and performance schedule requires that your child miss time from school (amount of time varies according to the role), however, most rehearsals do not interfere with class schedules. We will have a studio teacher present to help children keep up with class work, but please only submit your child for an audition if you and your child’s school are amenable to absences during rehearsals and performances.
