Cast Contract As a member of the OCRT's production of ________________________ I agree to adhere to the following terms of the production from the first day of rehearsals to the last day of responsibility. I understand that working on an OCRT production is an attempt to learn professionalism and as such, self-discipline is the most important factor.
I will: 1. Continue to maintain scholastic achievement as my primary responsibility. But with regards to the summer season, I understand that my commitment to the show is primary. We will attempt to schedule rehearsals around any work and/or family commitments made prior to the casting and listed on your audition form. Do not except additional responsibilities after you have been cast. 2. â€œCall inâ€? to the Theater Managers on the day when illness or other family emergencies have prohibited your attendance to rehearsal or crew call. 3. Promptly report to the Black Box or other scheduled rehearsal areas at the specific times posted on the bulletin board or facebook group. 4. Be at all scheduled rehearsals that require my attendance, except when prior notification has been given to the Stage Manager at least one week in advance. 5. Not be permitted to chew gum during rehearsals or bring food into the Black Box or other rehearsal space for consumption at any time. When taking lunch or dinner break during rehearsal you may eat where told by the Stage Manager. 6. Realize that there will be some night rehearsals expected. In the last week prior to opening, night rehearsals may extend as late as 11:00pm. Theater policy on lateness and attendance is always in effect. 7. Give 100% of my effort at every rehearsal I am required to attend, giving complete cooperation, respect, and attention to whoever is in charge at that rehearsal. In addition I will be courteous and respectful to other cast members, technicians, and musicians. 8. Conduct myself in a disciplined manner realizing that all Theater policies are in effect while on Theater property and that discrepancies will be reported. Administrative disciplinary action will be taking where appropriate.
9. Learn all lines and blocking by required deadlines. 10. Be able to supply pieces of my own costumes; also, recognize that shoes and stocking are always the actor's responsibility, however the Theater will supply makeup. I can expect to pay full value of any rental costume/ part thereof issued to me and lost while in my possession (i.e. left in the dressing rooms after a performance or rehearsal). 11. Alter my appearance (hair color, length, diets, etc.) only after consultation with the director to insure that it will not change my appropriateness for the role in which I was cast. 12. Sign up for specific crew recognizing that I am to put in 15 hours of backstage work as a member of this company. Striking the set is required of all cast members and these hours may be included in the 15 hours. 13. Recognize that it is extremely important to the success of this production that all involved remain in the best of health. For this reason, it is the strong recommendation of this department that no cast parties be provided or attended until after the final performance. We appeal to parents for support of this endeavor.
