LORT D Schedule Question
« on: Mar 16, 2016, 06:07 pm »
Quick question for the smart people on here. 

As a reference,  I am working on a LORT contract right now.  Heres my question:  After a show has opened,  how much notice do the actors need to be given about a rehearsal being held? This was not on a calendar as it is not something that was planned for and is a bit of an emergency situation.   I can't find anything that is specific to this situation.  All I could find is that the actors must be given 12 hours notice of the span of each rehearsal day.  Would that count here as well? 

Thanks so much for your help!!

Ruth E is the expert, but if I recall correctly, as long as they know before curtain down the day before and as long as they get a full turnaround that allows the hour-and-a-half before half-hour, you are ok.

If it's a true emergency, you call the actors and they come to rehearsal if they can, regardless of notice, and then the Deputy and Business Rep. hash out the payment issue. But in an emergency, like an actor being out, I have rehearsed with just a couple of hours notice. Mantra: check with the Rep.
