All students involved in undergraduate production share responsibility for the safety of their production, crew, cast, audience, and performance space. All participants should be familiar with the relevant regulations and observe them during all phases of the production process; should direct any questions or concerns to the appropriate adviser, to the Undergraduate Production staff, and to other relevant University officials; and should consistently apply good judgment and common sense.
Undergraduate production is understood to include all dramatic, musical, dance, operatic, and comedy events involving performance before an audience. All undergraduate production events must comply with the regulations below, regardless of their scope or size.
All University spaces fall under the jurisdiction of Yale Fire Code Compliance (FCC), Yale Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), and the department that manages the space (e.g., Head of College’s Office, Chaplain’s Office). All students planning productions must coordinate all aspects of their project with Undergraduate Production and must follow the Undergraduate Production Regulations. In the event of conflicting policies, the most stringent will be assumed to apply.
The use of drugs or alcohol in any theater by cast, crew, or audience is strictly forbidden and may be grounds for individual expulsion from the theater and/or immediate termination of the production’s use of the theater.
Production elements not conforming to the Undergraduate Production Regulations may be cut from a production. Failure to observe these regulations may be grounds for stopping an event. Serious or repeated violations of these regulations will be referred to the Yale College Dean’s Office for possible disciplinary action.
