Once the final show has finished you will need to ensure that all the costumes have been returned to the wardrobe team, that you have all your possessions packed away. DONT LEAVE ANYTHING.
Remember that the stage will be being cleared as well so it will be very busy, if you can help out please do.
Things to remember:
- Hair must be tidy, tied back off the face and suitable for a stage show.
- Keep dressing rooms tidy at all times.
- Put litter in the bins provided.
- No running around back stage especially on the stairs.
- Remember the lighting will be low on the side of the stage, be careful.
