The Dramat allows specific inventory and stock items to be rented by UP approved productions. Special rental requests for items not mentioned here must be made at least a week’s before the desired rental date. The deposit amount of any special requests will be determined at the discretion of Dramat staff. All rental requests should be sent to the Dramat’s Production Officer.
When any equipment is to be borrowed, a detailed itemized list (including cut quantities and sizes for gel, size and description for costumes, etc.) must be supplied to the Dramat for authorization before the removing items from the inventory. Taking materials without the express written authorization of the Production Officer will result in the termination of Dramat rental privileges from any Dramat department for any individuals found responsible. Any part of the deposit may be kept in order to cover damages or late charges at the discretion of the Production Officer.
Dramat Costume Rental Policy
Dramat costume shop rentals for non-Dramat student productions are free with a required security deposit ranging from $1-$16 per item. The Dramat reserves the right to keep part or all of the deposit if costumes are lost or returned late, dirty, or damaged. Deposits are not required for Dramat shows. Costumes may be put on reserve and pulled up to two weeks before performances. Costumes must be returned clean within two weeks of the show’s strike. No costumes may be rented during the tech week or performance dates of a Dramat production. Temporary alterations are permitted, but costumes must be returned in their original state.
Dramat Electrics Equipment Rental Policy
Music Stand Lights
Music stand lights are available for rent with a $1 lamp fee and a $2 deposit per light. Music stand lights will be unavailable during Dramat tech weeks, but exceptions may be made during tech for Dramat straight plays at the discretion of the current Dramat show’s Head Electrician. Music stand lights must be returned by 5pm on the day following the show’s run, unless specific arrangements are made through the Dramat Production Officer.
Deposits for gel rentals run in increments: $10 for up to 10 gels; $2 for each additional group of 10 gels, or portion thereof. (1-10 gels: $10; 11-20 gels: $12; 21-30 gels: $14; etc.) Gel rentals will be unavailable the week before each Dramat show’s tech week, and during tech and performances. Cutting gel requires the written consent of both the Production Officer and the Head Electrician of the upcoming Dramat show. Gel must be returned by 5pm on the day following the show’s run, unless specific arrangements are made through the Dramat Production Officer.
