Rehearsal Tape   

Since Theatre4 is primarily a performance space, taping is allowed only with prior notice and under the following circumstances:

  • "indicate" rather than "outline" the entire stage area
  • use ½" stage tape only
  • Remove the tape on your last day (or, if noted, before the next performance in the space,) and be very careful when doing so. TPS has a special tool available to help keep the tape from pulling up the paint on the floor.
