Costume Fitting Question
« on: Jan 30, 2007, 12:05 pm »
I'm running on 5.5 hour days under our rule book right now.  To schedule costume fittings then I need to give the actors a lunch after their costume call and prior to rehearsal (if I can't get the fitting within rehearsal hours).  If an actor prefers to give up their lunch in order to not have to come in an hour earlier, is that ok?  i.e. rehearsal starts at 12:00.  Costume call would be 10:00 with lunch at 11:00 for that actor unless they prefer to come in at 11:00 and forgo their lunch. 

Make sense?

I ALWAYS give the actor a choice to avoid the early call and sitting around doing nothing for an hour after a short fitting.

Absolutely. And actors will most always come in early and be thankful for the consideration.
If not, remind them!

Thanks.  I've done it before but just wanted to make sure it wasn't construed to be improper.  And you're right, most actors seem to appreciate it.
