Stage Priority List

Who has first dibs



All stages are reserved for regularly scheduled classes during the academic year.  If available, stages can also be booked for additional classes and/or student projects.

The Office of Physical Production is the first place to inquire about booking a sound stage.  This includes SCA Stages 1, 2, 3, 4 and Zemeckis Stages A, C, D, E.

Changing a stage booking is not recommended because it has a ripple effect on all the other productions requiring a stage.  The Office of Physical Production is the only office that has the experience and knowledge to juggle and schedule any change request.

Stages, once booked, cannot be “handed off” or loaned to another project.  The stage must re-booked through the Office of Physical Production

STAGES 1, 2 and 3

During Weeks 4 through 8, stages 1, 2 & 3 are held for CTPR 480 and 546 & 547.   Once the 480, 546 & 547 stage schedule is locked (usually in Week 3), Priority Projects can reserve a stage using this Priority Order:

FIRST PRIORITY:  581 thesis projects in the A semester. 

SECOND PRIORITY:  Peter Stark Special Projects 592.

THIRD PRIORITY: Animation Thesis projects 594.

FOURTH PRIORITY: Sloan Grant projects in the A semester.

FIFTH PRIORITY: Thesis projects in the B or C semesters.

SIXTH PRIORITY: 800 level, non-Sloan Grant, projects.

Once the above six priority levels are scheduled, the stages are available to Non-Priority Projects and classes on a first-come, first-served basis.   But please note: any Non-Priority Project can be bumped from their stage booking by a Priority Project with one week prior notice.

Stage 4

This stage is reserved for CTPR 484 and then 479 & 486 from August 14 through April 20.
