Everyone is always looking towards the end product, everyone invloved in a theatre production has the end goal in sight – opening night and the production itself. However, as an actor you will spend hours and hours in a rehearsal room and that space is where the magic truly happens, it is a safe place where you must be allowed to play, to create, to attempt, to fail and to succeed.
In order for everyone to have that safety to truly be free in the rehearsal room I would advise that everyone followsd these basic guidelines.
These tips and pointers are common sense and common courtesy, but I have been in too many productions where people just don’t seem to consider all these little things.
