Novel Coronoavirus (COVID-19)
Information for students and community
March 22 2020
Here at Sass and Tease like everyone we have been following the novel-coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully.
To protect our community we have already made the decision to suspend our shows for the foreseeable future and with the increasing announcements of the suspension of non-essential services around Australia we have taken the difficult decision to suspend our classes as well.
We will be contacting everyone enrolled in our current term to discuss possibilities going forward and of course we will continue to advise of any changes via our website, and on our social media channels.
Some of you have no doubt seen this image circulating on socials; this is a ‘ghost light’. A light which is left on a stand onstage when a theatre is dark or unattended. Theatres are designed to be pitch dark when the lights are out, so the ghost light means there’s a low level of safe light if anyone arrives in the dark. It also symbolises that the theatre is not abandoned, and performances will return.
At this dark moment in the live performing arts, it symbolises hope that life will return to our stages...
In the meantime stay sparkly and stay kind.
Love and Glitter,

The health and safety of our students, performers, tutors and audience at the Collective are incredibly important to us and we are monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully.
We are aware that many of our students and performers work with people in high risk categories and that many people in the wider community are in high risk categories. As a precaution to help mitigate the risk posed by the virus, we have decided to temporarily suspend our shows. While we are loath to contribute to a downturn in the arts we are even more loath to anyone at risk.
At this stage classes will continue as normal. However, if you are in or work in a high risk category and would like to defer your enrolment to a future term please get in contact with us so we can organise that for you.
We will continue to advise of any changes via our website, and on our social media channels. In the meantime stay sparkly and stay kind.
Love and glitter,
The Collective x
