Rehearsal Guidelines

Theatre Department productions are co-curricular activities; they augment the classroom curriculum and hence have both an artistic and educational mission. Consequently they should be regarded as a priority for all participants. Extracurricular activities should be relegated to a lesser priority or place on hold during the duration of student work on any Department production. It is also understood that students involved in co-curricular Theatre Department productions carry a full load of liberal arts classes. These rehearsal guidelines are intended to ensure that the time the student gives to both academics and to the theatrical process are respected and to engender mutual respect between directors, actors and crew members through their responsibilities to each other and to the creative process.
