Safety Procedures and Precautions
Guests encouraged not to arrive more than 15 min before their start time. Please wait in your car until this time and then walk on the gravel drive to find your group’s waiting area. Group in this area. If you are in a group with unrelated people, please observe 5 ft distance.
Performers (1-3 people per station) will be in stage area marked off with small fencing or rope, at least 15 ft. from the audience. Audience members can stand even farther down the path if they choose.
Masks required for everyone ages 5 and up unless while traveling in a “family-only” tour group. Please contact us if there’s a reason a mask isn’t feasible for someone in your party because of a medical need or special circumstance. Extra masks will be available if you don’t have one or forget.
Physical distancing is incorporated into the setup of the event so that you won’t even notice that you are being safe IF you listen to the directions of your tour guide.
Public areas of the preserve will be open according to the safe policies outlined by the Kreher Preserve staff.
Volunteers needed for AACT’s Musical Walk in the Woods!
July 31, Aug 1, 6:00 – 9:00
Ages 18 and up
Walking Tour Guides
AACT is looking for fun Tour Guides to lead groups on the walk. Guides will be supplied with facts about the musicals, songs, and performers and are asked to enthusiastically share them with their group as they move between acts. They will also make sure groups stay on schedule and use safe behavior, such as staying behind safety fences to avoid getting too close to performers. Guides are encouraged to take on a character, dress in costume, and make it a performance of its own – but just being friendly and chatty would be perfect too. Masks required. One night or both!
Set up tasks
Extra hands needed to hang the trail lighting at a TBD time in the week before. Also for set up, check-in, and performer care each night.
