To all Students, Faculty & Staff…


We have created a new set of show calendars for the Division of Theatre for the 2014-2015 school year. The theater/space & the DoT General calendars remain the same as they did last year. 


Here are the different types:

DoT Production, general

This calendar has important academic dates, special weekends, audition dates.


Theater Schedules/ Techs & Shops

These calendars are specific to each theater space. It will contain all times/dates for performances, techs & dresses and shop calls. Any special events and guest performances will also be on these calendars in the appropriate venue.


Show Specific Calendars

These calendars are specific to the show. All rehearsals, production meetings, deadlines and fittings will be available on this calendar, which will be updated by the shows Stage Manager. 



ALL CALENDARS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME. The reason these calendars are available online is to get everyone the most updated information as quickly as possible.


These calendars do not cross reference nor will they "merge". Meaning, each calendar is unique and has specific information. These were created in this way to reduce "duplicate" events as much as possible. For example, if the techs/dress dates were on the SOT production calendar, the show specific calendar and the theater space schedule, you would see those events listed 3 times. This makes for a very very crowed calendar. You can always hide or display a calendar in both your Google Account or iCal. If you choose neither of these options, you will only see one calendar at a time thru the website link.


Recommendations for who should have which calendar:


DoT General - everyone.


Actors, directors, designers, technicians, wardrobe working on a specific show should subscribe to the specific show calendar and the theater calendar that your show will be performed in.


Shop heads, paint crews, electrics crews, carp crews should subscribe to all theater space calendars




These links are available thru the DoT website!!! Thank you Barbara! Simply click on "Production Calendars" in the middle of the home page.

A few things of note and recommendations:

-IF you find any mistakes, please let Lara and show stage managers know.

-Only a few people have the ability to change things so don't worry about accidentally erasing something.


This many calendars may seem overwhelming - choose what you need. You can always delete a subscription from iCal or Google. You can also always hide a calendar if it is getting overwhelming visually.


For Directors/Faculty: These calendars are an expansion of the Outlook faculty calendar. We will be doing our best to keep both up to date.
