To submit a GA Setup Request form, please follow the steps below:
Click "Submit a Request".
Select "Setup - Theatres / Theatre Lobbies" from the Templates drop-down menu. It is listed under the "Event Setup" category. This will pre-fill the three "Category" fields for correct delivery, as well as set up the template document.
Fill in the items you are needing for your event, including the setup and removal dates & times in the "Detailed Description" text box.
You may also add any diagrams or images of your setup as attachments to your form.
When you are finished adding all relevant information, click the "Submit" botton at the bottom of the form.
Congratulations, you have submitted a GA Setup Request for an event in the Theatres / Theatre Lobbies!
Your form will first be directed to John Black (Theatre Manager), and after confirming the setup and removal dates & times, the form will be forwarded to the appropriate GA department according to your request.
Sometimes things happen and you need to change your plans - we understand! Making adjustments to GA Setup requests can sometimes be difficult as work orders get assigned to GA staff members according to their daily schedule and work shifts. The Theatre Office works closely with the GA staff and we are happyto follow up with any changes that you need made.
If you need to make any adjustments to your submitted form, need setup or removal dates changed, or need your request cancelled altogether, please contact John Black directly and we will work with the appropriate GA staff member. Please be sure to reference your Incident # so that we can find your form submission.
If you require furniture items such as folding chairs, folding tables, white boards, items from your classroom, or other furniture items that are a part of the GA inventory, we ask that you submit a GA Setup Request no less than 48-hours prior to your event so that we can arrange for these items to be delivered to the theatre on time. These items are shared across the campus and GA will need time to coordinate delivery.
Please use the Setup - Theatres / Theatre Lobbies template to expedite your request. Otherwise, the form will be redirected to John Black several steps into the approval process.
There are frequently many different events rehearsing in rotation on the same day. To best serve the needs of each individual event, we ask that users completely clear the stage of your belongings so that other groups can access the full stage without worrying about losing or damaging items for your event. this includes the stage wing areas. Storage of event supplies and materials can be arranged through the Theatre Manager.
We have published - and will keep up to date - web pages on the Theatre Office website with facility information, event planning guides, and other resources to help you plan your event. These are available from the Guides & Policies webpage or the Venues & Services webpage for venue-specific information.
