Backstage Expectations Handout

Teach your students backstage etiquette for working in the theatre.

Performers have the gift of being storytellers on stage, guiding the audience on a journey. Those helping behind the scenes are invaluable to the experience as well. To make it a safe and enjoyable experience, everyone must follow traditions of behavior when working in the theatre.

Here is a ready-to go backstage contract for your performers and their guardians to read, sign, and return.

  1. Backstage should be a safe environment. Most often when working on the stage there is little light backstage. To avoid tripping or stumbling, please keep the backstage area clear of belongings on the floor. Props and costumes should be organized and arranged in specified areas.
  2. In theatre, actors do not touch props or other items being stored backstage that do not belong to them. The only people who handle props stored backstage are the actors or crewmembers who use the props on stage.
