Covid-19 Updates


Our kids mean the absolute world to us, and we would never want to put them in harm's way. Please note, that every decision we make is based on the safety of our kids, families, staff, and volunteers.


We realize that trust is extremely important during this unprecedented time. While we can't control the information we are getting about the pandemic and knowing what is fact or fiction, Youtheatre can control how we are adapting and communicating with you all about our organization and programming. We aim to be as transparent as possible so you all can have peace of mind when it comes to participating in Youtheatre activities.


Current Covid-19 In-person Procedures:


A Midsummer night's Dream:


Masks are currently recommended but not required for A Midsummer Night's Dream auditions.



Masks again are recommended but not required for all cast and crew.

Making Little Women: Louisa May Alcott:

-Viewing March 4-6:

Our performance of Making Little Women: Louisa May Alcott will be held at First Presbyterian Theatre in downtown Fort Wayne. Their current policy is that masks are recommended but not required for the building. 


Masks are currently recommended but not required for all Class activities in the Arts United Center. Arts United Center's building policy does state that if Allen County is in the RED, then masks will be required for all staff, volunteers and visitors. 



For additional information regarding rehearsals, arrivals/departures from our facilities and more, please see our updated "Play Safe" Covid-19 Guide.





First Presbyterian Theater has lifted its mask policy for their venue. This means masks are no longer required but recommended for people entering this venue. Our production of Making Little Women: Louisa May Alcott premiering March 4-6 at First Presbyterian will also no longer require masks for patrons wanting to see the show. 


As it currently stands, auditions and the 1st week of rehearsals for "Making Little Women: Louisa May Alcott" will require masks until Jan. 31st, 2022. This is due to the spike in pediatric COVID-19 cases. We will reassess our mask policy for the rehearsal process of this show starting 2/1/2022. Thank you for your understanding. 

In addition, our performance venue at First Presbyterian for "Making Little Women: Louisa May Alcott" has updated their COVID-19 policies. Currently, all visitors and staff are required to wear masks inside their buildings at all times. Please note, that this policy could change as we get closer to the show. Please keep checking back for the latest updates on this.
