Photo Call

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?

No, at least not if you follow all the conditions of Rule 39.  It allows you a 1.5 hour Photo Call outside of regular rehearsal hours.  It's like outside-of-rehearsal costume fittings; it effectively increases the span of day, without taking anything extra out of your total weekly rehearsal hours.  You still have to pay attention to regular 5/10 minute breaks though, and the long break after 5 hours if it's that kind of day.

I agree with Rebbe.
Please note that the SPT Rulebook has been extended by a year to 2008.
The new rulebook can be found in the AEA Document Library.
