Theatre Policies

AUDIENCES

In planning your evening at Theatre in the Round, you should be aware of the following:

LATE SEATING POLICY

If you arrive after curtain, we will escort you to our late-seating area, where you can watch the first act. At intermission, you may cross the stage to your assigned seats. Latecomers who use wheelchairs or are otherwise unable to access our late-seating area may listen to the first act in our lobby.

CHILDREN

Because of the nature of our shows, and in consideration of other audience members, children under 6 years old are not admitted, unless otherwise stated in the production information.

WARNINGS

Notices regarding the following are posted on the individual show page as well as on signs at our box-office. Call the box office if you have questions.

  • Special effects (such as strobe lighting, fog, gunshots, etc.)
  • Explicit language and/or action; nudity
  • Smoking onstage

VOLUNTEERS

Theatre in the Round Players (TRP) is committed to providing a nurturing, supportive and equitable community for artists, volunteers, patrons and all those involved in bringing its mission to life. As such, the following policies must be reviewed and acknowledged by all volunteers.

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION & NON-HARRASSMENT POLICY

The theatre has established an Anti-Discrimination and Non-Harassment Policy to protect volunteers from unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.

MINORS POLICY

The Minors Policy addresses both minors in the company as well as those accompanying adults in the company.

CODE OF CONDUCT

The Code of Conduct Policy was established to serve as a basis for nurturing communication, safety, respect, and accountability of participants at all levels of theatrical production.

COMMUNITY COMMITMENT STATEMENT

We are aware of the overdue need for equity for many of our communities, and we are also aware of TRP’s responsibility to challenge inequity in all its forms. As an integral part of the Twin Cities theatre ecosystem, we are committed to our role in advancing inclusion, diversity, equity and accountability (IDEA).

We have started and will continue to add to the list of actions below:

  • IDEA focus in our updated values statement
  • Intentional consideration of IDEA in future season programming
  • The formation of a community-led Artist Council
  • Creation of a dedicated IDEA committee to ensure a sustained board and staff priority
  • Ongoing commitment to seeking diverse candidates as part of TRP’s board, donors, staff and volunteers
  • Policies and procedures reviewed with an IDEA lens (including code of conduct, sexual harassment statement, etc.)
  • Investment in an internal IDEA audit to identify gaps and barriers to inclusion, as well as a community survey to artists, volunteers and patrons for additional input

We invite you to join our efforts while also holding us accountable for creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all theatre-lovers in our community.
