The Flag System, Or, Just Be Safe Please

Second Stage has a flag system to assign penalties to unsafe behavior. This isn't meant to scare you (well, it is a little bit), but we need everyone working on productions to uphold a reasonable level of safety.

Example

A staff member notices that some of your lights are not safety cabled.

Result: you would get a warning (low-level flag).

The next day, your lights are still not safety cabled.

Result: you would get restrictions on any subsequent light alterations for your show (mid-level flag.

The next day, any infraction in lighting is incurred.

Result: lighting could be cut from your show, and you would have to illuminate using house lights only (high-level flag).

The next day, your team is throwing around lights like footballs and drinking in the theater.

Result: cancellation of your show (very bad flag).

Disclaimer: show's very rarely get flags, and almost no show ever gets a high-level flag. Unless you are a completely irresponsible human to the point where you treat your own production like a dump, then you will not get the highest-level flag.

Other Information

If an offense occurs and a flag is issued, your show will be notified within the day.

If an offense occurs during a run and a flag is issued, your show will be notified at least three (3) hours before the next show.
