Production positions and crew assignments are posted following casting each term. Students are asked to submit production position and crew preferences to the Technical faculty/staff one week after casting is posted. Positions are then assigned by the technical staff. Assignments are made by the Technical Director (TD) and Costume Supervisor. Although students’ preferences and conflicts are taken into account, the final decision rests with the Technical staff.
In assigning production crews, the goal is that each student will experience all major productions areas (scene, lights, costumes, and props) during his/her degree program.
ALL Performing Arts students involved with the production (cast and crew) and students enrolled in production class (THEA 103/303) are required to attend strike.
THE TECHNICAL DIRECTOR IS IN CHARGE OF ALL MAINSTAGE STRIKES.
Strike schedule is posted by the Technical Director. When a production ends with a Sunday matinee, strike will begin within 30 minutes of the end of the show and will continue until the stage and all preparation areas are clean and ready for the next production. As posted in advance, some show strikes will occur the evening of the day following the final performance. NO STUDENT MAY LEAVE STRIKE UNTIL DISMISSED BY THE TECHNICAL DIRECTOR (not your area supervisor).
