1 – Theatre Capacity and Set up

All audience members or event participants will be required to show proof of vaccination in order to attend or participate in an event hosted at the Bus Stop Theatre.

Due to current health and safety regulations, we will be implementing the following changes to the standard theatre capacity and set up of the space.

Capacity and set up must respect provincial distancing guidelines. As of October 4th, 2021, audience members do not need to be distanced from each other. However, they must be masked at all times except when seated.

To avoid overcrowding, we are enforcing a limit of 75 audience members in the theatre until further notice.

Bus Stop Theatre staff will continue to be masked when interacting with the public.

2 – Renter/performer Requirements

All renters must refer to our new Vaccination Policy to determine whether they can access the theatre and what their distancing and masking requirements will be in the theatre.

All renters/performers will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entrance to the space (sanitizer will be provided at the front door).

In addition to the obligations laid out in the Vaccination Policy regarding distancing and masking, renters are encouraged to continue to practice physical distancing and masking whenever possible.

All renters/performers must provide contact information (phone number or email address) to assist with contact tracing in the event that someone who has attended the theatre tests positive for Covid-19. This information will be kept confidential.

3 – Sanitization Protocol

The lobby, theatre, dressing room and community room will be cleaned and all surfaces sanitized regularly and prior to each rental. 

For multi day rentals, the renter is responsible for cleaning/sanitizing the dressing room and any equipment which will be used by multiple people.

Cleaning products will be provided for the renter to use in the space.

4- Fees

While we recognize that revenue potential is reduced for renters due to lowered audience capacity, our rental rates will remain the same due to increased operational costs. 

Furthermore, our multi day rental discounts have returned to pre-covid ratios:

3+ day rentals receive a 10% discount
7+ day rentals receive a 20% discount
