The evaluation form that will be used to assess students’ performance in the courses is attached. A schedule of the production season and theatre events will also be provided.
The student’s responsibilities are as follows:
- Complete the “Cast and Crew Questionnaire.”
- Check the Theatre Callboard (the bulletin board outside the Green Room) for the crew list, which should be posted no later than the Monday following the first majors/minors meeting.
- Contact your crew head and watch for crew work calls.
- Complete 4-8 hours per week for each production.
- Crew heads must post crew meetings and weekly work calls.
- If you are assigned to a running crew, you must attend a full run-through of the play before the first technical rehearsal (scenery, lighting, props) or before the first dress rehearsal (costumes, makeup).
- Participation at strikes for mainstage and one-act productions is mandatory. Work obligations are not an excuse. You will earn a grade of “F” for that production for failure to attend strike.
- Crew heads must complete and turn in evaluations of their crews by the time of the Post‑Production Evaluation. Crew heads not meeting this deadline will receive a failing grade for that production.
- On the first Monday after the first production of the semester has ended, work begins on the next production. Therefore, crew heads need to post meetings and work calls for the second production at the Post-Production Evaluation for the first production.
- Both men and women who are cast in MSU Theatre productions must purchase acceptable rehearsal shoes.
- Any questions or requests, such as requests for revisions of the crew lists, must be directed to the Professor of Record.
- Freshman theatre majors are required to attend a jury in December. All theatre majors and minors are required to have a jury at the end of spring semester.

Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.
Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.
Student Honor Creed
As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."
As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.
Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.
We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.
We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.
