Questions & Answers
Q. What is Hurrah's plan for Classes with our current pandemic situation?
The Hurrah Players are back to in-person classes and rehearsals! Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Hurrah have followed State, Local, and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance and will continue to do so. As such, in compliance with the revised CDC guidelines, The Hurrah Players’ Board of Directors has lifted the mandatory mask requirement for classes, rehearsals and performances moving forward. Unless otherwise noted, masks are optional when attending any and all events at The Hurrah Players. We will, of course, continue to provide masks for those who prefer to wear them.

Grateful Hurrah Players Highlight
"Hurrah gave me a purpose and helped me discover my passion. I had such a sense of fulfillment at a young age because of The Hurrah Players and Hugh Copeland. It set the track for my career and life."
"Hugh was a mentor to me and was able to show me at a young age I was different and an instrument that could tell stories and move people and touch people's hearts."
"Through kindness, acceptance and love, Hurrah became a place most of us call home and people we call family. I can never replace the collection of incredible memories I have or the lessons I have learned. I believe anyone who joins will inevitably begin to feel this way and become part of our family."
