New Invited Dress Rehearsal Policy
QCMG has updated our policy regarding who may attend our free invited dress rehearsal, and we want to keep you informed. The reasons behind the change in dress rehearsal policy are as follows:
1) To encourage more people to volunteer in all areas of the organization, particularly on the days of performances
2) To increase the number of tickets sold per performance and overall season
3) To put our policies more in line with other area community theaters.

-Persons cast or involved with an individual show will no longer be invited to attend dress rehearsals for the remaining shows.

-Persons invited to dress rehearsals include:
-nursing homes, group homes, etc that are invited in writing 
-neighbors as identified in writing
-board of directors
-persons involved in that specific production that are not participating in the actual performances including:
-Mon-Thurs and Daytime Box Office Volunteers
-Persons involved in tech such as painters, carpenters, seamstresses, lighting, and sound assistants
-1 guest for each person involved in the actual performance (i.e. cast, crew, orchestra, production staff)

-The following volunteers are invited to attend the performance the night or matinee they volunteer.  This is for the volunteer only and for that performance only. These volunteers can bring a guest only if that guest purchases an individual ticket for the performance that night.
-Box office
-Bus Greeters
-Parking Attendants
-Lobby Pianists
-Lobby Sales (t-shirts, etc)

Cast members and others involved in a single show may see the remaining shows of the season for free only if they volunteer in one of the above areas.  This will allow them to see the performance(s) the day they volunteer.

Committee chairs will enforce the number of people who volunteer. For example, if concessions needs 6 volunteers and one volunteer brings a friend, the friend will be required to purchase a ticket.

Thursday night Dress Rehearsals will be ushered by the Board of Directors until the policy is understood by our volunteers.

Thank in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to implement the new policy!
