Strike Instructions:

Please be complete with your strike. Refer to your contract for specifics on what you are required to do. Thank you.

Here are some things which might not be in your contract, but you should obviously do anyway:

  • Categorize lights on risers so it is easy to count similar fixtures.
  • Stack chairs in back row. Armed chairs DO NOT stack with armless chairs. Make separate stacks.
  • Paint all scuff marks flat black. Spackle all holes and paint flat black. *** Even if you don't paint the theater for your set, I guarantee you that your show caused scuff marks on the floor and possibly to the walls. Please paint the space back to perfection.
  • Make sure plastic bins for lighting supplies have the correct contents. I recommend leaving them open on the stage until after the walk-through with a SOSE tech. It saves you time with juggling around all the equipment and it saves us all time during the walk-through when we check the inventory. Thanks.
  • Go through Booth, Bathroom and Dressing Room to clear odds/ends and any forgotten-about items. Often the Booth is the area that is the most neglected in terms of trash and clutter.
  • If you arranged the booth to your needs, PLEASE restore it the way you found it. That includes untangling cables so they lay nicely out of the way of feet and so that items can be removed from booth easily (not caught up in a mess).
  • Sweep and mop. We have brooms and a mop for you to use. There is a hose outside our front door which you can use to fill the bucket. Afterward, please dispose dirty water into sidewalk gutter.
  • Look in fridge and under risers for any leftover concessions or paperwork.
