Employment / Re: Covid-19 cancelled job on resume?
« Last post by BenTheStageMan on Apr 15, 2020, 03:17 pm »
While I sometimes do list upcoming shows (notated as "Upcoming"), I do think it's disingenuous to list a cancelled project if you know it's been canceled.  The Resume is a list of experiences not just theoretical work.

Excellent question being asked by many people right now. One of the key points raised is whether or not a contract has been signed, or at least offered. Most of what I'm hearing is that it can be mentioned in a cover letter but not on the resume, since they didn't actually work there.

Employment / Covid-19 cancelled job on resume?
« Last post by ProfSM on Apr 15, 2020, 11:47 am »
Most of my students have lost their summer stock positions for this summer because of Covid-19.  Should they still list the job on their resumes since they did get the job but were unable to work?  Should they indicate that it was cancelled due to Covid-19?

EDIT

Also:  What if a SM was in rehearsals and just about to go into tech when a show was cancelled due to Covid-19?  Would they still not put that on their resume even if they were involved with the rehearsal process?

The Green Room / Free online courses!
« Last post by Maribeth on Apr 13, 2020, 03:29 pm »
So many universities are offering free online courses right now! There's a list here of courses offered by ivy league universities- there are some really interesting-looking "intro to opera" courses that might appeal to stage managers. There's also a section on "personal development" courses, including one on communications skills.

Hoping this might be interesting/useful for folks looking for things to do in the unexpected downtime....

This is more Rhode Island-centric, but someone might be able to glean something and get an idea about what to do in their home state:

Also, call your state and local reps! Gig workers, part-time contractors, and small businesses have a lot of resources now available for them and there's a bunch more coming.

Hello,

  I am looking for a Risk Assessment form.  I have found lots for crew, but I need something more directed at the performers.  Specifically dancers.
  Does anyone have anything I can look at or work off of?
Thank you for your time!
