SHIANN REESE started this petition to dean of Colfa Dr. Eric Morrow and

Currently, the Fine Arts Department at Tarleton State University is unable to have non-campus audience members attend our shows due to the Covid-19 “protocol”. These are people such as family, significant others, or alumni. However, this conflicts with other Covid-19 protocols set in place for other departments on campus. These conflicts include, but are not limited to;

1. Athletic events are allowed to have non-campus spectators attend their games.
2. Texan Tours are still allowed to take place (with parents/students from all over the country in attendance).
3. Tarleton’s Parent Weekend is taking place soon (with parents/family members allowed to go into the Fine Arts Center and other various locations on campus.

We have requested several times to be allowed to have audience members that are not students/staff/faculty, but have been denied because it is “too big of a risk”. How is allowing our families to come to see our accomplishments any bigger of a risk than having random people from everywhere in the nation roam free on our campus? Let alone in our own building? We are performers. Theatre, band, choir, and many more. We thrive on being able to show off our skills and accomplishments. If athletes are allowed to have their families there, why do we deserve any less?
