Course Expectations



The evaluation form that will be used to assess students’ performance in the courses is attached.  So is a schedule of the production season and theatre events.

The student’s responsibilities are as follows:

  • Complete the “Cast and Crew Questionnaire.”
  • Check the Theatre Callboard (the bulletin board outside the Green Room) for the crew list, which should be posted no later than the Monday following the first majors/minors meeting.
  • Contact your crew head and watch for crew work calls.
  • Complete 4-8 hours per week for each production.
  • Crew heads must post crew meetings and weekly work calls.  Calls should be posted by the weekly production meeting.
  • If you are assigned to a running crew, you must attend Crew View or a full run-through of the play (at the discretion of the director) before the first technical rehearsal (scenery, lighting, props) or before the first dress rehearsal (costumes, makeup).
  • Attendance at strikes for mainstage and one-act productions is mandatory.  Work obligations are not an excuse.  You will earn a grade of “F” for that production for failure to attend strike.
  • Attendance at the Post-Production Evaluation is mandatory as is providing a written response to the post-production questions.  Work is not an excuse.  You will earn a grade of “F" for that production for failure to attend the evaluation/submit responses to the questions .
  • Crew heads must complete and turn in evaluations of their crews by the time of the Post‑Production Evaluation.  Crew heads not meeting this deadline will receive a failing grade for that production.
  • Each student will receive a copy of the crew head’s evaluation.
  • On the first Monday after the first production of the semester has ended, work begins on the next production.  Therefore, crew heads need to post meetings and work calls for the second production at the Post-Production Evaluation for the first production.
  • During the academic year – in the fall in most cases – theatre majors must receive special safety instruction and new theatre majors must pass the safety test as part of their Rehearsal and Production requirements. Procedures for accomplishing these requirements will be made clear at the majors/minors meeting.
  • Both men and women who are cast in MSU Theatre productions must purchase acceptable rehearsal shoes.
  • Any questions or requests, such as requests for revisions of the crew lists, must be directed to the Professor of Record.
Submission Format Policy Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.
Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.

Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

Students with Disabilities

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, (940) 397-4140.

Safe Zones Statement

The professor considers this classroom to be a place where you will be treated with respect as a human being - regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political beliefs, age, or ability. Additionally, diversity of thought is appreciated and encouraged, provided you can agree to disagree. It is the professor's expectation that ALL students consider the classroom a safe environment.

Contacting your Instructor

All instructors in the Department have voicemail in their offices and MWSU e-mail addresses. Make sure you add your instructor's phone number and e-mail address to both email and cell phone lists of contacts.
