Participant Conduct, Behavior & Dress Code Agreement

SMCT is an organization to produce theater for children by children in a nurturing and positive environment. Please read the following expectations and sign electronically below to indicate your understanding as well as, your willingness to abide by them.

1. I will attend rehearsals during my scheduled time and inform the cast manager in advance if I am unable to attend.

2. I will stay in the assigned rehearsal room, or designated area as assigned by the production staff, and inform directors in

    advance if I am unable to attend, or to need to momentarily leave the rehearsal area.

3. I will be respectful (quiet and listening attentively) of any adult providing instruction.

4. I will cooperate with adult volunteers who help with the show.

5. I will direct reports of inappropriate behavior or other concerns to the director of that rehearsal.

6. I will be respectful of or monetarily responsible for property, including props, microphones, sound equipment, costumes,

    and set pieces should my actions result in breakage, damage or loss.

7. I will abide by the policies of any rehearsal or performance venue or facility.

8. I will not use any disrespectful language designed to hurt or cause pain to another member of the cast or crew.

9. I will not make someone feel that their role in the production is not important.

10. I will refrain from public displays of affection with other members of the cast, crew or visiting guests. This includes

      kissing, excessive or repeated hand-holding or hugging.

11. I will not post anything on social media that negatively affects the integrity of SMCT or any member of the cast, crew or

      volunteers.

12. If I don’t feel well, I will tell an adult immediately.

 

I understand that the producer/director or their designee, maintains the right at all times to take any action, in his or her sole judgment, necessary to uphold the integrity and positive reputation of SMCT. I also understand that if I display conduct in violation of the above terms or other inappropriate behavior it will be reviewed by the producer/director who will have the final disposition of disciplinary action which could include immediate and permanent dismissal from the show. Disciplinary action will be shared with the Board of Directors. If the behavior is severe, participation in future shows may be prohibited.

 

Disrespectful behavior by one cast member, or their parent/guardian, negatively impacts the entire team and therefore will not be tolerated. If a child is acting in a negative manner the instructor will ask the problem student to rethink their behavior, this will be considered a warning.

 

Actions considered behavioral issues:

- Unnecessary talking causing a disruption to others or the directors

- General disruptive behavior such as running, interfering with others or others possession’s

- Being disrespectful to anyone present at the rehearsal

- Any language, behavior or gestures deemed offensive

- Failing to follow specific instructions by the directors

- Public display of affection (PDA) violations

- Dress code violations

Instructors /Directors have the right to take disciplinary action by giving a warning or asking the individual to leave the rehearsal.

- When an infraction occurs the cast member will be informed that they have been given a warning

- The third time the instructor/director/volunteer speaks to your child during a rehearsal, your child will be set aside from

   the rehearsal.

- At the end of rehearsal the instructor will speak with the student and the parent or guardian to discuss corrective action.

If a team member is asked to leave any rehearsal or show 3 times in one season, they will be dismissed from that show.

 

SMCT also expects it's participants to be example within the community and thereby agrees to the following terms (check each box in acknowledgement):

 

 

            If selected as a cast member or as a technician for this show, I will supply a copy of my most recent grade report and will

            continue to supply copies of all grade reports for the duration of the rehearsals and the production dates.

           

            If I am the subject of any disciplinary action at the school I am attending during the rehearsals and the production dates, I

            will immediately notify the SMCT Administrator

   

            If I am the subject of any criminal action during the rehearsals and the production dates, I will immediately notify the

            SMCT Administrator

We expect that all participants will be appropriately dressed for all rehearsals and performances. Unless the director has specifically requested dance attire such as leotards or other form fitting attire, the standard dress code calls for:

- No short-shorts, bare midriffs.

- Necklines should be modest and not gape open when bending over.

- No flip flops or open toed shoes are to be worn to any rehearsal that entails dance movement or blocking, nor are they

    to be worn at the theater at any time.

 

If a director has cause to correct a participants attire, this will be considered a behavioral issue warning.
