The Hardline / Showcase
« on: Oct 17, 2007, 06:49 pm »
I can't seem to find the answer to this question. Does showcase work count towards Health weeks?

The Hardline / Deputy
« on: Sep 11, 2007, 11:25 am »
I'm currently doing Fiddler on a SPT 5. We have 6 principals and 2 chorus members. The way I understand it is we need to have a deputy for principals and one for chorus, right? If the cast unanimously agrees they only want 1 deputy instead of 2 does equity care?

The Hardline / Photo Call
« on: Aug 31, 2007, 05:46 pm »
I've read through the SPT rulebook and can't find the answer. I'm hoping someone can help.

Does the photo call count against your weekly rehearsal hours?


Tools of the Trade / Notebook for Mac
« on: Mar 21, 2007, 02:24 am »
So I was just reading about this software called Notebook for Mac. Has anyone used this before? If it works the way it looks, it would be a great way to have an electronic "book" with the tabs and everything. Any thoughts?

SMNetwork Archives / USITT Conference
« on: Feb 23, 2007, 06:18 pm »
Is anyone here going to the USITT Conference? This is going to be my first time going and I'm not sure what to expect. I'm also debating whether or not to sign-up for the Management PDW, but haven't decided. Is anyone else taking that PDW?

*Edit by nmno - seeing as how the conference has passed, I'm locking the topic.

The Hardline / New SPT Agreement
« on: Jan 18, 2007, 01:46 pm »
I'm a rather new member of AEA, so please forgive me if this sounds like a silly question...

Since the current SPT agreement is up at the beginning of June of this year when will the new SPT agreement come out?

Also, since SPT is not an association like LORT. RMTA, The League, etc. How does that agreement get negotiated? Do theatres currently on an SPT agreement have any input?

The Hardline / John Holly Retires
« on: Nov 22, 2006, 02:05 pm »
So I was reading the Equity website this morning and found out that John Holly, the Western Region Director of Equity is retiring at the end of the month. So I was wondering what happens next? What is the process and timeline for selecting a new Region Director? etc. Thanks.

SMNetwork Archives / International Dictionary (Theatre Words)
« on: Sep 12, 2006, 01:42 pm »
This is a question for all of you that have toured, are planning on touring, or just like to know how to say "places, please" in other languages.

There is a book called Theatre Words (as I'm sure you know) that has theatre terms in many different languages. How would you feel about an electronic version of the book, that had pronunciations? Would this be more or less helpful than having the actual book?

A friend of mine was telling me about the Juilliard Professinal Internship. Has anyone here done it or been involved with it? This is kind of a stupid question, but how do people feel about Juilliard (and their internship) in the professional world?

The Hardline / MRE
« on: Aug 30, 2006, 11:02 pm »
Has anyone ever used the MRE clause of the equity contract? Does it even apply to SMs? I think it does but I am not sure. If you have used it. How long were you away and how did it go over?

Employment / Resident SM
« on: Aug 18, 2006, 03:19 pm »
So here is my question,

I am now the Resident PSM at a SPT. The theatre has had a new stage manager every year for the last 5 or so years. Usually the SMs are happy to leave so there is not much communication from one SM to another. Outside of normal SM responsibilities, what else do you do as a staff member in your theatre?

Thanks for your responses.

Stage Management: Other / Stage Managing Dance?
« on: Apr 15, 2006, 01:44 pm »
Has anyone ever stage managed dance shows? I have done a few, but I am curious to see how other people call their cues, how do you write them, and things like that.
