Storage: A secured storage space is available and is shared by all plays.  Each play will have an area roughly 10' x 14' to store items overnight.  The storage area will not be accessable between the end of rehearsals and your setup time.  If you need items during dressing and warm-up times or overnight, take them with you after rehearsal.

Misc: Rehearsals:  Each school has one (1) hour for rehearsal on Thursday, April 10th.  Rehearsal times are scheduled in reverse order of distance to travel (closest school first, farthest school last).  Initial access for rehearsal is through a loading dock on the North side of the auditorium.  College personnel will assist in bringing heavy items in through the loading dock as needed..  Spike tape will we provided.  You may provide your own clear tape to over-tape the colored tape.  Strike at the end of rehearsal will move out the back of the auditorium into a storage area.  Schools will then be shown location of  the building facilities including storage, dressing rooms, restrooms, etc.  See rehearsal time schedule for your times.

Dressing Rooms:  Two dressing areas will be made available for performance day on a hot swap basis.  See performance time schedule  for room assignment and available times.  Once you leave the dressing rooms, you must take everything with you.  College personnel will escort each school from their dressing area to storage and then to the setup area.    Please note that your contest is scheduled during our normal college class day.  There are classes in progress during your warm-up time.  Please keep the sound levels down in the dressing area and in the halls.  If you need to be real loud warming up, take it outside.

Performance:  Performance order is determined by a random draw.  We will run three plays in the morning and three plays in the afternoon with a break for lunch.  (Sorry, but we don't have the staff to run the performances back-to-back)  Performances will begin no earlier than the published start times.  Access to the auditorium will not be allowed after a performance begins.

The college crew will assist in stacking the Unit set during strike and in moving heavy items out the loading dock doors.
