Back Stage Etiquette General rules: 1. Don’t talk to other crew members backstage during rehearsals or performances unless it is about the business of production. Then, talk at a LOW whisper. 2. Don’t talk to the actors backstage during rehearsals or performances unless it is about the business of production. Their job – acting – takes a great deal of concentration, and they shouldn’t be distracted. 3. Wear dark clothes, preferably dark blue or black, to minimize the distraction to the audience if you are seen. Wear sturdy rubber-soled shoes (no tennis shoes, cowboy boots, sandals, or flip flops). Sturdy shoes will protect your feet, and rubber soles will minimize noise. 4. Be sure to show up on time for your crew call (the time your are scheduled to arrive at the theatre ready for work). Remember early is on time, and on time is late. Sign the sign-in sheet, and check in with your crew head for work. 5. Don’t smoke, eat, or drink backstage. 6. Do not touch props, costumes, or stage equipment that is not your responsibility.
