Covid-19 and Beyond

At Carp Productions we’re committed to maintaining the highest hygiene standards. Hand sanitiser is a constant presence in everything we do; we use it before and after every performance, and whenever possible beyond that. We wipe down all of our equipment before and after use, and wash all costumes after performances. We’ve adapted our shows – we’re minimising contact between actor and audience, especially in situations where children are invited onto stage to play parts. We’ll be maintaining a 1.5 metre distance at all times. And we’re keeping a close watch on our health, with a commitment to self-isolate and have ourselves tested if we display the slightest symptoms. You can’t be too careful. We also keep ourselves up to date with updates from the Department of Health and Human Services.

We have consulted the government’s coronavirus website for the latest information and have found the following, which is great news for schools (and Theatre In Education Companies!)

“School gatherings involving parents or other external guests no longer have a cap on maximum numbers.” 

“If an event is held with external guests… the density limit of one person per two square metres [is] applied.

“If an event is held exclusively with students and staff from a single school, density limits do not apply “

By adhering to the restrictions (social distancing and signing in) the website states it is now safe for visitors to perform at schools. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you all in 2021! We’re open for enquiries and bookings, and we’re prepared – as always – to meet any challenge and continue to provide our high-quality, entertaining and informative shows into the future. See you soon!
