LORT / TYA overlap
« on: Oct 14, 2005, 11:45 pm »
Has anyone ever overlapped LORT and TYA contracts?  

Possible scenarios:  
1.  SM for a TYA starts on a LORT contract during TYA performance weeks, concurrently rehearsing LORT and performing TYA.
2.  ASM of either a LORT or a TYA rolls over onto the other contract but continues to be the "ASM of Record" on the first show while a non-eq "crew" takes over the track (i think this is probably not kosher, even though it's done many places.)
3.  ASM for a LORT rolls over onto rehearsing a TYA.
3.  Actors in TYA performance starts rehearsal on a LORT
4.  Actors in a LORT performance start rehearing on a TYA

My brain is spinning.  

Though the two contracts share many similarieties, max weekly hours for both Actors and SMs are different and rules about rehearsing on performance days are different.  

The biggest issue here is taking actors who are doing 2 TYA performances in the morning (9:30 and 11:15am curtains) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, done with performances by 12:20pm, and then have to go to rehearsal for a LORT in the afternoon.  We're looking at a 9am-12:20pm span of day for the TYAs, then adding on rehearsal hours for the next show.  
How long of a break do they need between?  
How many hours can they rehearse per day?  
Per week?


On the reverse, performing a LORT show in the evenings, how long can they rehearse for a TYA during the day?  

The good news is that i have some time to muddle through this conundrum.    This situation has never occurred at this theatre before, so everyone is in the dark.  
(I sense much time on the phone with the LA office in my future.)

Surely someone else has been here?

Turns out it is a remarkably simple situation.  Since the two roles are contracted separately, each is treated independantly of the other even though both are with the same organization.   The TYA/LORT overlaps are far simpler to deal with than the LORT rollovers.
 Eh, who really needs Scrooge in rehearsals anyways?
