Stage and Backstage Etiquette

A guide by Bob Williams, OKP Technical Director

  1. Arrive at the theatre / rehearsal space so as to be able to start on time.
  2. Be prepared for what is scheduled for that day’s rehearsal.
  3. Clean up after yourself!
  4. The Stage Manager(s) are in charge; give them the respect that they are due.
  5. Stage Managers, remember that you have to earn your respect.
  6. If a prop is not yours, don’t touch it!
  7. Write down your blocking!
  8. When not onstage, be silent.
  9. Once assigned your costume(s) and where to store it/them, you are responsible for them. Notify wardrobe immediately if something needs repair.
  10. There is only one Director. Any suggestions should be made to him/her at a time of their choosing and only if they are accepting suggestions.
  11. When receiving notes, pay attention and write them down in your script, your notebook, or both.
  12. There should be no side conversations going on during the giving of notes. This is rude and disrespectful.
  13. Know your cues as well as your lines.
  14. Knowing lines good, paraphrasing bad! Your lines are someone else’s cues.
  15. Refer back to #3.
  16. When given information by the Stage Manager the proper response is “Thank You.” I.E Stage Manager: “Fifteen minutes!” Actors and Techies: “Thank you fifteen!”
  17. When given the call to places, it means go to places now, not in a minute or two; when you have finished chatting, be ready. This is why you are given 15, 10, and 5 minute warnings.
  18. Be quiet and hold all doors when backstage during a performance. Your whispers can be heard.
  19. Stay out of sight: if you can see the audience, they can see you.
  20. Refer back to #3.
  21. Most importantly, have fun!
