Notice regarding Second Stage Policy:

Second Stage always attempts to best serve the needs of the Wesleyan theater community. Thus, Second Stage policy is considered fluid- it may be altered or amended at any time as the needs of the Wesleyan theater community grow and change. Second Stage pledges to always attempt to give a show time to adjust after the adoption of a new policy. Whenever possible, Second Stage will attempt to grandfather shows into new policy, such that only shows whose show flow date follows the effective date of a policy are required to follow said policy. Shows whose show flow date precedes the effective date of a policy have the option of following the new policy or remaining with the earlier policy.
