Hold the Applause Productions is committed to becoming a safe place for artists and performers to create in an environment that spurs imagination and inclusiveness. We focus on the 3 C’s: compassion, collaboration, and community engagement.
The safety of our patrons, artists, performers, and volunteers is of the upmost importance to us. To help ensure a safe environment for all as we return to in-person programming, the following protocols will be implemented until further notice.
