  • Performances Return to DA

    We are excited to start performances at DA.  We want to make sure our audience members know our new safety policies to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and keep our students, staff, and families safe. 

    Our Theatre capacity is limited.  Therefore, all tickets must be purchased in advance through GoFan.co.  Tickets must be presented on your mobile device at the door. 

    Temperature checks will be conducted on each patron before they enter the Theatre.  If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms or have come in contact with anyone positive in the past 14 days, please stay home. 

    Seating has been carefully selected to ensure 6ft between patrons.  Please only sit in open seats, do not break the zip ties, and do not sit in rows that are roped off. 

    There will be hand sanitizer at each entrance and exit.  Please use the sanitizer as you enter and leave the Theatre.

    Masks must be worn at all times while on campus.

    We look forward to seeing you back on campus for our performances.

  • Wellness Wednesdays

    Wellness Wednesday is a state mandated program designed to be a school-wide pause in which teachers and students engage in 30 minute lessons related to mental and emotional health. The goal of the Mental Health Education Initiative is to teach students to identify signs and symptoms of mental health challenges, and how to access help for themselves and their peers.  Click here to read more.

    Wellness Wednesdays will take place on the last instructional Wednesday of the month. 

    This year we will deliver Wellness Wednesday instruction through first block (A1 or B5) and will be on a special bell schedule seen here.
