June at the PAC usually means Youth Theatre of Hardin County (YTHC) rehearsals each weekday afternoon in preparation for their annual summer musical. Sadly, June 2020 means COVID 19 restrictions and the cancellation of YTHC’s production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY. It has been postponed until summer 2021.
With this unexpected down time or what we in the theatre world call going “dark,” the PAC staff will be redirecting our efforts:
Bart plans on curating online resources for families and teachers, researching and enlisting preparedness measures to ensure a smooth transition for reopening, pursuing funding options, donors and grants and unearthing PAC history.
Aaron is busy participating in webinars on mic sanitizing and cleaning, learning new shortcuts on the light board and deep cleaning lighting instruments and equipment from the catwalks to the pit.
Diane will be working from home connecting with user groups and renters pursuing options to postpone or reschedule events, attending webinars and cleaning out old files.
Justin will be continuing to research and work with beta Virtual Events for possible use in the coming PAC 2020-2021 Season.
Ron will be busy waxing floors and keeping up with sanitizing mandates necessary for a PAC reopening.
