Staffing

Each Performance Rental Package is staffed by the Technical Director who may also be the operator for lights, sound, and video. Keep that in mind when thinking about your cues. The Technical Director can also design very simple lights during your rental tech time using BAX’s general plot. Artists are encouraged to contract their own Lighting Designer if their lighting needs are complex. Artist must provide a Stage Manager/Technical Assistant or BAX can supply one with advanced notice and an additional hourly free. You are encouraged to recruit volunteers or hire additional staff if you feel that you will need additional help.

Sets

We have minimal furniture (including 3 stage cubes) available for use and limited storage space. It is the artist’s responsibility to make outside arrangements for transporting/storing their own set equipment.

Strike

All costumes, props and set pieces should be struck from the space DIRECTLY AFTER THE LAST PERFORMANCE. If you anticipate some difficulty with this, please make special arrangements with the technical director at least two weeks prior to performance.

Fire/Smoking

Use of live flame is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. This includes but is not limited to candles, cigarettes, matches, lighters, etc. There are no exceptions.

Additionally, BAX does not allow the use of glitter or cut glass in any of its spaces.
