Appx 1 part 8 Item A:  PRODUCER

The plays Producer is charged with the successful presentation of the play. He oversees all elements of the production and is responsible for bringing together all of the elements of the performance. In general, these elements are: the audience, the cast, and the theatrical setting. The Producers responsibility ends once the post production report is tabled

Reports To
" Dundas County Players Executive_Committee

Although the list of responsibilities for the Producer is extensive, it is assumed that many of the tasks will be delegated to other members of the group. This delegation, however, does not transfer the responsibility for the successful completion of the task.  It is the producers responsibility to determine which tasks are large enough to require a department.

" Budget/Finance: The producer sets the budget for the play with input from the departments. The budget is then presented to the Executive Committee for approval. The producer collects all proceeds from each performance from the Front of House and remits it to the treasurer.
" Rights: The Producer must acquire the rights for performing the play and must purchase as many copies of the script as needed, including one copy for DCP library.
" Venue: The Producer is responsible for booking the venue for the rehearsal and presentation of the performance.
" Programs: Overseeing the production and distribution of the programs are the responsibility of the Producer. He should, however, consult with the Director concerning the look and feel of the program to ensure continuity with the production.
" Tickets: The Producer is responsible for the design, production and distribution of tickets. This includes: monitoring ticket sales, collecting money, and remitting it to the Treasurer.
" Publicity and Marketing: The Producer is responsible for the production and distribution of all advertising material, and other promotions such as raffles or other contests. The Producer is responsible for the design, production and distribution of posters.
" DCP Website The Producer communicates with the DCP Webmaster for advertisement of the production

" Financial report The Producer prepares a final financial report for presentation to the Executive Committee.
" Documentation to logistics committee The Producer ensures that a copy of a Production poster and other related archival documents are handed to the logistics committee for inventory and historical purposes.

Appx 1 Part1:  INTRODUCTION to Appendix I to DCP's Constitution

This document is an attempt to clarify the who does what parts of mounting a production at Dundas County Players. It is hoped that with the structure presented in this document, future productions can be easily mounted, thus making the entire process more enjoyable for all involved.
This document is divided into three parts. The first describes the structure and function of the theatrical production departments, the second details individual roles of key positions, and the third is a diagram of the structure.
Appx 1 Part 2: OVERVIEW of Appendix 1 to DCP's Constitution

Generally, the departments are tasked with the actual creation of the play (sets, costumes, etc) whereas the individual roles hold the accountability for the completion of various tasks. It is important that responsibility for completion of tasks falls to named individual roles. This way, we are not left looking at each other while important deadlines pass by.
Note: This document refers to individuals using the male gender. Any place where the male gender pronouns are used (he, him, his), it is assumed that either gender applies.

The majority of the actual work on a production is done through the theatrical production departments. Each department consists of a department manager and as many other people as the department manager deems necessary. It is the managers responsibility to fill all roles within his department.
It may seem that there are quite a few departments in the theatrical production. Each department is a working group with a specific and unique set of tasks. Under the direction of a department manager, the members of the department work together to complete the mandated tasks.
The department manager may confer with his members for ideas and suggestions, but the responsibility for making decisions rests solely with the department manager.
In order to fulfill the departments requirements, avoid burn-out, and still have fun, it is recommended that each person involved in the production choose only one department to work in and only one role.
Appx 1 Part 4 of the DCP Constitution:  PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

Per Article 8 in the DCP Bylaws and Constitution, the production management committee is made up of: the Producer, Director, Assistant Director, Stage Manager, Props Manager, and Light and Sound Manager(s). All of the major production decisions are made by this group. Other members of the production may be invited to attend production management committee meetings as needed.
The Management Committee is chaired by the Producer. It gives its members a forum for communicating information which affects the production as a whole. This committee is the Producers forum to ensure that goals, objectives and timelines are being met.

A theatrical production requires three major components; a vision, that is an interpretation of a script by a director; the successful rendition of the vision by the production team, and the performance itself.

Vision / Direction
This component includes the following departments
" Sets
" Props
" Light and sound
" Costumes and makeup
" Stage

This component includes the following departments
" Publicity & Marketing
" Budget/finance
" Front-of-house

Although this component does not require any departments as such, it does stage the relationship between cast, audience and crew.

This department is charged with transforming the productions venue from an empty room into a setting for the play. Such setting comprises a number of backdrops, flats and fixed properties, including furniture, appliances and decorative accessories. The manager of this department is usually a set designer who works closely with the Director and Producer to design and supervise the construction of a set that is effective for the play and manageable from a lighting, props and actor movement perspective. The set designer also works with the Producer to ensure that the set is within budget.

The props manager, is responsible for acquiring all required props for the production. Just like the set, the props must be in keeping with the Directors vision of the performance and must be manageable by the actors and stage crew. Props include everything on the set that is moveable and is used or carried on stage by actors. The props manager may acquire any onhand
props from the Props Master of DCP.

Lighting and Sound
The Lighting and Sound departments specialize in all things electric. The lighting and sound managers are the productions special effects team. The lighting manager designs the lighting in conjunction with the Director. The Sound Manager designs and compiles the sound effects in conjunction with the Directory. They also rig all of the lighting and sound equipment for the show and operate it under the direction of the Stage Manager during the production.

This department works closely with the Director to dress the actors in costumes which reflect the setting and fit the characters. The costume manager/designer is responsible for costume design, procurement, and inventory management during a production. This department may be called upon during the performances to be dressers for the actors.  The Costume Designer works in conjunction with the Director to develop the general theme for the costumes and ensures that the costumes being used are in keeping with the theme. The Costume Designer/manager works closely with the in-house Wardrobe Mistress to obtain desired costumes on hand.

A makeup department will be formed at the discretion of the Director. If the play calls for only street makeup, a makeup department is not needed. If specialized makeup is required, the Director may choose to make use of a makeup department at which time he assigns a manager. The manager of the makeup department is responsible to work with the Director to design the appropriate makeup applications that will be required for the performance.

There are two people in charge of getting a play from the printed page to the stage. The Director is one, and the stage manager is the other. The Director is responsible for everything, but his focus is primarily on the artistic side of the production.  The practical side is the responsibility of the stage manager.  The stage manager controls the call to actors for rehearsals. During production, he cues the light and sound booth, and ensures actors are cued. The stage manager is also responsible for making sure actors have their props, and for cleaning and resetting the set after the performance. This department reports to the director.  This department is also responsible for the dressing and changing of all sets/scenes during the performances. This is usually handled through the use of a stage crew.

Publicity and Marketing

Appx 1 part 8 of the DCP Constitution:  INDIVIDUAL ROLES

Appx 1 Part 8 Item B:  DIRECTOR

The Director is the keeper of the productions vision. He must build a vision of how the performance is supposed to be interpreted and mold the actors, sets, costumes, etc. to fit that vision.  A Directors first concern is the direction of the cast. All of the Direction departments report to the Director resulting in the Director having both creative and administrative roles. The Director should rely on both his Assistant Director and Department Managers to relieve him of some of the day-to-day responsibilities. This will allow the Director to have the overall responsibility for decisions made by each of his departments, but to leave the execution of the tasks to the managers and the Assistant Director.

Reports to
" Dundas County Players Executive Committee
" The Producer

" Advertise, schedule, and attend auditions
" Assemble the cast
" Interpret the play and maintain the authors original intention; articulate the plot and characters to the cast; describe the setting; describe lighting and sound needs to the light and sound department; described costume needs to the costume department

" Resolve any issues for the departments that they cannot resolve for themselves
" Provide guidance to all the Direction departments
" Should be present at every performance or delegated to Assistant Director if need be
" Liaise with the Stage manager during performances for any problem solving

" The cast
" The rehearsal schedule
" The overall artistic impression of the play

The Assistant Director is the directors right-hand man. The Assistant Director works closely with the Direction departments during their day-to-day activities. He ensures that the Directors instructions are carried out by the Direction departments. The role of Assistant Director provides good experience in order to become a Director.

Reports to
" The Director

" Assist the Director by working with the following department managers: Costumes and make-up, Props, Sets, and Lighting and Sound.
