BEST PRACTICES


SOME BEST PRACTICES FOR ACT-CO GROUPS
A work in progress, in no particular order.
Your comments and suggestions are welcome: email actcowebmaster @actco.ca

 

  1. Respect the Fourth Wall. Theatre is magic, but only if the magic is hidden.  The fourth wall does the hiding.
  2. All required crew and design team for a show should be in place months before a show's opening night.  It is the Producer's job to do this, hence the Producer should be appointed as soon as the show is selected for production.  All positions should be filled by members of the Group not by casual volunteers.  If members can't crew the show, the show doesn't deserve to go on.
  3. Understand that members of a Group are the "owners", or "share holders", of the Group.and must take responsibility for running the Group.  By paying a membership to a theatre Group, understand that the person is interested in theatre and has agreed to accept responsibilities in order to reap the benefits of satisfying their interest.
  4. As "owners", all members have a right to a say in the affairs of the Group and should insist on exercising that right.
  5. Groups should always comply with copyright and licensing rules, laws, and requiremants.  It is illegal and unethical not to. Understand that by virtue of being artists, members of Groups should want other artists to get what they are intitled to.
  6. Groups should have adequate and appropriate insurance coverage, including Directors and Officers Liaibility.
  7. Understand that the Group's Board of Directors and Executive are members of the Group who have volunteered to run the Group on behalf of the general membership.  Understand that the Board does not "own" the Group, the general membership "owns" the Group (see 3.)
  8. Groups should have an open and democratic Play Selection process that involves any and all members who want to have a say.
  9. Auditions should be open and never pre-cast.
  10. Understand that the show Director does not "own" the show. The Group "owns" the show and delegates that ownership to the Producer. The Director, and everyone else involved in the production, is mounting the show on behalf of the Group and must do so in a manner that is in the best interest of the Group.
  11. Do not allow anyone to "only act".  Insist that for every two times they act, they must must do a backstage job or some administrative job.  Refuse to cast anyone who will not comply.
  12. Discourage "floaters": actors, and others, who belong to several Groups but don't do much for any of them. 
  13. Constantly strive for new, permanent, active members.  A reasonable and achievable goal would be one new member per year.
  14. It should be a policy of the Group, and not the perogative of the Director, that, as much as possible, plays should be entered into the ACT-CO Festival. Adjuducation is education and competition and benefits the members of the Group.

Performance License


FROM THE MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL website:  here
Any presentation of a musical from MTI that takes place in front of an assembly of people (no matter how few) is considered royalty-bearing under the law, whether or not admission is charged. This can include "invited" dress rehearsals, or contest excerpts. A valid performance license is required for all of these performances. If a group has any questions whether or not a performance may require a royalty, they should contact their licensing representative at MTI. The importance of obtaining a license for all royalty-bearing performances cannot be stressed too strongly, as the penalties for violating Federal copyright law are severe indeed.

FROM THE SAMUEL FRENCH website: here
What exactly is a “public performance,” and how do I know if I need to pay royalties?
Our definition of a performance requiring legal authorization and payment of author royalties (licensing fees) is any performance in front of an audience:
regardless of whether or not admission is charged; 
whether the performance is public or private; 
whether or not it is for charity or gain.

2014/2015 ACT-CO FESTIVAL


The ACT-CO Festival 2014/2015 has begun!
The annual ACT-CO Festival is an exciting opportunity for community theatres across the ACT-CO region to participate in a celebration of community theatre, to have their work adjudicated by an experienced theatre professional, and to have outstanding achievements recognized with awards at our ACT-CO Gala.
 
Thank you to all of the groups participating in Festival 2015.  We have 45 shows entered this year. For the first time, the largest category is Musical, followed by Comedy and then Drama.  I am working on the festival schedule, always trying to accommodate first choice for adjudication dates.  The schedule will be reviewed with the Adjudicators and then the ACT-CO Board at the end of the month.  Confirmation letters will be sent on or about October 8th.
 
A few reminders about Adjudications. 
  • Please advise the cast and crew that the show is being adjudicated and that they should attend the private adjudication: it's for their benefit. 
  • Notes may be taken during adjudication but are not to be posted on your website, Facebook or Twitter.
  • Please use the Feedback form to log your assessment about the adjudication: comments should not be posted on your website, Facebook or Twitter.
  • As a courtesy, comments about an adjudication should not be shared with another adjudicator.
 
The ACT-CO Board Category Liaisons
 
   
 Ted Sellers
Comedy
Vicki Drier
Drama
Jo-Anne Pulfer
Musical
 
Every attempt is made to ensure that two ACT-CO Board Members accompany the Adjudicator. To reduce travel expenses, the Category Liaison may or may not be in attendance. Unless there is a personal conflict, the Group Liaison will attend your adjudication.
 
Did you know that a group must be a member of ACT-CO for a full season before the group may enter Festival?  A new group may join ACT-CO in the first year of  their operation, but must wait one year before entering Festival.
Confused?  Give me a call.

Break a Leg!

If you have any questions or concerns about the Festival, please contact me at actcofestival@actco.ca or (905) 895-1764
 
The 2014/2015 Festival runs from Tuesday, October 14, 2014 to Saturday, March 28, 2015.  The ACT-CO Gala will be held on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The Theatre Ontario Festival 2015 will be in Oshawa, hosted by Oshawa Little Theatre, from May 13 to May 17, 2015.

THEATRE ONTARIO FESTIVAL ADJUDICATOR


Theatre Ontario Welcomes Ron Cameron-Lewis as Festival 2015 Adjudicator

Theatre Ontario is thrilled to welcome Ron Cameron-Lewis as adjudicator for the 2015 Theatre Ontario Festival in Oshawa.  The Festival will be Ron’s penultimate appearance as an adjudicator in Ontario, leading to his “swan song” appearance as adjudicator of the 2016 Western Ontario Drama League Festival (although he will continue with some international theatre work.)

”I am honored to be invited to adjudicate the Theatre Ontario Festival in Oshawa,” said Ron Cameron-Lewis.  “This marks the fifth time in the past 29 years that I have been asked to adjudicate the top productions from around the province. Having attended many more Theatre Ontario Festivals as well, I look forward to reconnecting with many friends from all aspects of my half century of experience in community theatre.”

Ron is well known to community groups across the province as a teacher, adjudicator and workshop leader.  He has adjudicated well over 2,000 productions throughout Ontario for community and educational theatre festivals, as well as in the USA at state, regional, national and international levels. Since 2010, he has taught the art of adjudication to 50 people, three times at Theatre Ontario Festivals and twice at AACT national festivals in Rochester, New York, and Carmel, Indiana.  In 2010, Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning appointed him Professor Emeritus, and in 2013, Ron was elected as Member-at-Large for the American Association of Community Theatres for a three-year term.

Theatre Ontario Festival 2015 will be held in Oshawa from May 13 to 17, 2015 and is co-hosted by Theatre Ontario, Oshawa Little Theatre, and the Association of Community Theatres—Central Ontario.
