PYT Needs Help Tues., Dec. 7th / Wed., Dec. 8th

Preparing PaperHand Puppet Gym/Studio  for "High School Musical" Performances

     Pittsboro Youth Theater needs a few capable volunteers to work at PaperHand's facility on Tuesday, Dec. 7th or Wednesday the 8th from 5 'til 8pm to help move puppets, clean up the old gym floor, and generally spruce up the fantastic place for our shows next weekend. It'll be something volunteers will never forget–not the kind of thing a person does everyday! If you're interested in helping fix up PaperHand's gym/studio for PYT's "High School Musical" performances, please send an email to CFTA.Cwitter1@gmail.com; be sure to mention if you're available Tuesday, Dec. 7th or Wednesday, Dec.8th from 5pm-8pm in your email.

As We Address Coronavirus Together
 
Dear Patrons,
Pittsboro Youth Theater's (PYT's) family of fine organizations within the Center for the Arts, Pittsboro (CFTA), is dedicated to improving the lives of area residents. Needless to say, the ongoing good health of our customers, neighbors and visitors is of great importance to us.

Everyone in CFTA and Sweet Bee Theater must wear a mask. Vaccinations are encouraged for all and required to participate in or attend many inside functions, including attending performances. To be on the safe side, please carry your vaccination card with you when coming to a function in CFTA. Those too young to be vaccinated or others without COVID vaccinations may show proof of a negative COVID test as the door to attend performances.

 

All employees and owners of organizations here are working hard to keep our facility as safe and clean as we can. We have added extra cleaning procedures with bleach and Lysol before, during and at the end of every day we're open.

Further, we keep the front door and back window ajar with a fan blowing out a window in the middle room to improve fresh air ventilation during operating hours.

 

In addition, every cast and crew member must wash their hands with soap and water before every rehearsal or performance, after touching their face, and before eating.

Thank you very much for doing all you can to keep us all as safe as possible from COVID.

Sincelely,

Tammy Matthews and Craig Witter
