Procedures for Requesting Use of ItemsStudents fulfilling requirements of a St. Mary's Project or Independent Study, or producing a White Room show, have access to properties, costume pieces, and furniture/scenery pieces for use in their creative projects. Students fulfilling requirements of acting classes (scene work), directing classes (directing projects), or film production classes have limited access to these items. Generally, these students are responsible for supplying their own props and costume pieces; access to furniture pieces will be approved only under special circumstances and by the technical director. Note: Main stage productions have priority in the use of all properties, costume pieces, and furniture/scenery pieces.
The department has implemented a system for requesting properties, costume pieces, and furniture/scenery pieces. Requests for furniture/scenery pieces must be made to the technical director, for costume pieces, accessories, and props to the resident designer. Students must sign out all items before their use. Students must request items at least 24 hours in advance of their intended use; all "special requests," which must meet the approval of the technical director or resident designer, must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the item's intended use. No "last-minute" requests will be honored. If students circumvent these procedures, all privileges for shop facilities' use will be rescinded. Note: The technical director and resident designer reserve the right to approve or deny student requests at any time. Students are responsible for replacing any damaged, lost, or unreturned items at their own expense.
