Attached is an info-sheet with parking options that we have for your staff, performers and/or volunteers. Please note that these options are only for your group. DO NOT share this with any patrons, parents or audience members as these options are limited.
Also on that info-sheet is the parking permit that is needed if anyone decides to park at South Main Baptist Church. For best use, print the document double-sided and distribute to anyone on your team. Also attached is a parking map that lays out all of our options. For any patrons that need parking information, they can be directed to our website: https://matchouston.org/location-parking
You may also pay for parking in the garage across the street but that could be $15-20. Parking is free in certain areas on the street, but cars have been broken into in the past, so make sure you car has nothing in it and is locked.
Arrival: You need to arrive an hour before your light tech time in case we are running early. If you are not waiting in the theatre one hour prior to tech, the lighting designer will set lights for you and move on to the next piece.
You and your dancers should meet at the back door and call me to open it. Check your name off on the call board and stay in either the dressing rooms or theatre for tech. The choreographer and lighting designer will run the piece to look at cues, then adjust any lights. Each piece should have the choreographer and dancers on stand-by in the house 30 minutes prior to their tech.
You will be responsible for warming yourselves up and taking care of your bodies. Bring costumes, makeup, water, and anything you need for the show – you will not be allowed to leave once dress rehearsal starts.
Lighting: This is a low-tech show, so lighting will be limited to minimal cues (3-5 cues total.) Edgar is our lighting designer. Fill out the attached lighting form and send back to me.
Tickets: Purchase tickets in advance if possible. This show sells out every year and we turned people away at the door.
