Stage Reservation

Stages are reserved primarily for use during College classes and workshops. When the stages are not in use for course work, then students may reserve them for productions according to the Sound Stage Use Policy. Other than auditions, students are not allowed to shoot in any other College-owned spaces other than the shooting stages.

Priority

During any given semester there will be multiple productions going on across both MFA and BFA programs. Reservation priority of the sound stages is in the following order:

  1. College classes, workshops, events
  2. MFA Production (in priority order of Thesis, D2, D1)
  3. BFA Productions (in priority order of Thesis, F3, F2, F1)

The stages may not be reserved for weekend projects or documentaries. Special projects approved by the Associate Dean may reserve the stages by permission only and may not interfere with the curriculum of the College.
