Summer

**UPDATE JULY 1, 2020**

COVID-19 / INSPIRATION STAGE SUMMER PROGRAMMING UPDATE

Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 case numbers and subsequent mask order extension for our county of operation, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person camp programming for the remainder of summer 2020. Foremost is the safety of our students, their families, our staff, and our community, and we do not feel comfortable with the risks of exposure and transmission at this time.

As you can imagine, this year has been extraordinarily difficult for our organization and other arts organizations of our kind across the country. We are focused on building an adapted model for musical theatre education for the upcoming school year, including the launch of our long-awaited “iConservatory”—an audition-based, limited enrollment musical theatre training program where students complete online schooling at our facility then attend in-person intensive dance, acting, and musical training classes as part of their school day. We will be issuing more information in the coming days about iConservatory and are excited to offer a solution for families seeking enhanced schooling options and performing arts education for the upcoming year.

We are also excited to announce the return of our “Zoomsical” programming with another online summer camp July 20-31. The show will be either “The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley: Online Edition” or “Dear Edwina: Online Edition”, pending final licensing arrangements. This Zoomsical will rehearse for 2 hours each day (3pm-5pm) and conclude in a streamed performance July 31 at 4pm CT. Enrollment is open to anyone age 10-19. We are also exploring the idea of a Zoom-based play (non-musical) for younger students ages 7-16. Register for our next Zoomsical below!

As before, we are happy to offer the following options for your summer camp tuition paid:
• Transfer registration to one of our online summer camps.
• Receive a credit back to your Inspiration Stage account that you can use for any future Inspiration Stage class, camp, or production. This credit does not expire.
• Gift your tuition paid in full or in part to support our organization.
• Receive a refund for tuition paid.

We thank you for your understanding and flexibility in these extraordinary times. To request any of the above options, please contact me, Sarah Patterson, via sarah@inspirationstage.com or 713-855-3653.

Stay well, and we look forward to seeing you (virtually) this summer or back at the theatre in the fall.

OUR COMMITMENT TO HEALTH AND SAFETY
There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our students, patrons, staff and faculty. Inspiration Stage’s leadership team is communicating constantly with one another, as well as outside partners and community leaders, to make sure we’re adapting to the latest information and every single decision is viewed through a lens of science-based best practices and community wellbeing. We would like to thank the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation’s Safe & Well campaign for awarding Inspiration Stage with a Covid 19 PPE wellness donation.
No organization can guarantee your safety. Here’s what we’re doing to keep our community as safe as we possibly can:
  • We have prioritized proactive deep cleaning efforts, comprehensively and routinely sanitizing all surfaces. This is in addition to our already rigorous daily cleaning efforts. Hand sanitizing stations are also accessible in many locations in our building, and their use is actively encouraged. We are also posting signage in all our restrooms and around the building reminding everyone about the importance of proper hand washing.
  • Campers will wait in the car until 5 minutes before class time (the lobby may not be used as a waiting area)
  • When going into the facility, everyone will wait on sidewalk socially distant marks outside with masks on.
  • Campers will have their temperature taken with a contactless thermometer at the door and temperature must be below 100.4 to enter for camp
  • Hand sanitizer upon entrance to the building. Campers should pack their own personal hand sanitizer.
  • Parents or bystanders cannot enter the facility or wait in the lobby, only participating campers are permitted .
  • Campers are required to wear shoes at all times in the facility.
  • Campers must bring one water bottle from their own home (cups and water bottles will not be provided at the studio).
  • Throughout our studios and theater, our teaching faculty have been instructed to ensure all equipment and regularly touched surfaces are wiped down both before and after camps.
  • When entering a community space, teaching artists and students are instructed to wash hands frequently and disinfect any props used.
  • We are providing more spacious areas for students to sit, better accommodating social distancing.
  • During camps, students will be guided to eat lunch in the classroom, limiting the time spent interacting in spaces with others and touching additional surfaces.
  • We are helping children engage in dramatic play and dance that does not involve close physical contact or wrestling. We are also instructing students to avoid sharing.
  • If you aren’t feeling well or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please stay home and follow recommended self-quarantine efforts!
