Faculty and student directed productions are rehearsed on weekdays (Monday – Thursday) between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Weekend rehearsals (Friday – Sunday) may be scheduled for four or five hours. No more than six out of seven consecutive days may be used for rehearsals except during technical weeks and no production may rehearse more than nineteen hours per week. (Technical week excepted. Starting on the Monday of tech week rehearsals may be from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.) Except in extraordinary cases, non-musicals will rehearse for four to six weeks; musicals and dance concerts will rehearse for six to eight weeks. All rehearsals must be scheduled in coordination with the coordinator of theatre operations. See also the Technical Rehearsal Procedures section.
As is true in the professional theatre, if the director believes that a cast member’s participation in a production is unsatisfactory, it is his/her prerogative to replace the person. A professional attitude and commitment to productions are expected at all times.
All rehearsal areas must be cleaned up and readied for their next use following each rehearsal. All directors, cast members, and stage managers will be held responsible for maintenance of space used.
Students must be given sufficient notice for crew and rehearsal calls. Calls or changes in calls should be posted on the cast and crew callboards at least 24 hours in advance.
