Production Crew Requirement

Return to the summary of requirements.

Theater minors must fulfill one THEA 199  assignment.

  • This is a non-credit bearing requirement.
  • THEA 199  is defined as working on one designated production from tech rehearsals through strike.
  • Procedure:
    • The staff supervisor will determine the number and kinds of positions for each show at the beginning of each season, allowing any interested students to sign up well in advance.
    • At the beginning of each semester, the staff supervisor will announce a mandatory meeting at which THEA 199  assignments will be distributed. Students must attend this meeting in order to receive a THEA 199  assignment for a given semester.
  • These production crew assignments include all theater department productions (Mainstage and Lab series) and major dance department productions (limited to ODC, Fall Forward, and Spring Back). They do not include operas or extra-curricular productions.
  • 100% attendance, punctuality, and commitment are required for all THEA 199  assignments (and are neither negotiable nor optional);
  • Any student failing to satisfactorily complete a THEA 199  assignment will not receive minor credit.
  • In order to broaden our students’ backstage experience, the two assignments should ideally be for two different kinds of crew positions (e.g., both assignments should not be for operating the light board).
  • Because these assignments often conflict with departmental casting, it is recommended that students fulfill both assignments before the end of their third year.
  • For stage management or assistant stage management of a theater department production, students may either:
    • receive credit through taking THEA 312F  / THEA 312H ; or
    • count it as one no-credit assignment of THEA 199  (provided they meet the requirement of working all tech rehearsals through strike).
