COVID-19 PROTOCOLS: Message from GNWCA President, Charlie Jordan: We at the GNWCA found this information on the Jean's Playhouse in Lincoln, N.H., useful in explaining where many arts centers are regarding audience safety and COVID. Like Jean's, we are looking out for your safety and encourage the continued use of masks--but it is ultimately your call: "We want to thank our patrons for being so understanding of our mask and distancing policies during 2021. We have worked hard to create policies that keep our patrons, staff, volunteers, and performers safe. "We have used the guidance of the CDC in making our past protocols, and we will continue to do so for 2022. Therefore, as it stands now, and in accordance with the current CDC guidance, we will be returning to normal audience operating procedures until further notice. This means masks will be highly recommended, but optional, and we will be suspending social distanced seating. Tickets for the 2022 Spring & Summer Shows are now on sale, however, we reserve the right to adjust our policies as developments occur. All orders are subject to venue policies at the time of the show, which may be different than the policies at the time of purchase. Refunds will not be issued based on policy changes. As always, thank you for your support as we continue to navigate this ongoing situation." By entering the GNWCA, guests and ticket holders voluntarily assume all risks related to potential exposure to COVID-19.

A Schertz, Texas, and native New Hampshire woman who used humor and Facebook to document her family’s daily life during the COVID-19 outbreak has released a book to provide a lighthearted look at the pandemic. This is the second book by author Donna Hoffmeyer, the daughter of Ron and Linda Beloin of Columbia and a 1990 graduate of Colebrook Academy. The book, “Pandemic Parodies,” was released on Feb. 22, and her 10-year-old daughter has become a published illustrator as a result, contributing the drawings for the book. Upon release, the book was a “#1 New Release” on Amazon.
