Technical and Dress Rehearsal Procedures
During the technical/dress rehearsal period, it will be necessary to have the complete cooperation of the entire production company.
The director and Assistant Director will conduct the progression of these rehearsals/performances. She/he may cut from scene to scene (cue to cue), depending upon the needs of the designers, directors, and staff.
Anyone may stop a rehearsal if she/he feel that she/he is being put into an unsafe position.
Remain attentive and do not engage in unnecessary conversation.
Do not talk backstage or if seated in the audience or waiting in the wings.
At no time should you question the authority of the stage manager and crew hands. Even if you disagree with a procedure, comply with the directions given to you. The only exception to this is if you feel a situation is unsafe or if you feel your life is in danger.
Actors must help the technicians by remaining in character and following the prescribed "timing" during these rehearsals.
During the technical rehearsal, wear clothing that is close to the color of your performance costume. Do not wear WHITE or BLACK unless your character will be wearing white or black.
