Covid-19 Response Timeline
Last Updated: July 14, 2020
Youth Theatre Northwest remains committed to providing quality arts education and enrichment, while adhering to the current public health restrictions and guidelines. As always, the health and safety of our students, teaching artists, and staff remain our top priority. With Phases of Reopening taking effect, YTN will adhere to those guidelines concerning distancing, cleaning, and safety.
While our offices are still physically closed, we are up and running online.
We know our students and families (as well as ourselves) are eager to know what’s going to happen this summer! We are working on multiple plans and below you will find a schedule for when we will announce our new plans, based on what is feasible within the current and projected guidelines.
