  • SDC and AGMA (American Guild of Musical Artists) have released their AGMA/SDC Return to Stage and Performing Arts Playbook. The overarching goal of the Playbook is to help performing arts organizations craft their own safety plans so that SDC Members and AGMA artists can safely return to work. The AGMA/SDC Return to Stage and Performing Arts Playbook helps to address the unique challenges of singing, dancing, stage managing, choreographing, and directing by outlining the layers of protection necessary to mitigate risks.
