The League of Off-Broadway Theatres and Producers, Inc. is a party to two collective agreements, the Actors` Equity Association (AEA) and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society (DezA). Share contracts for individual members generally cover positions in three categories: Principal, Chorus and Stage Manager. The main contract is used for all the main actors and most of the stage directors. The choir contract is used for actors who mainly do choral work. Each employment contract is referred to a specific collective agreement and contains all its conditions. The production agreement. The production agreement includes Broadway tours, both national and international. It is also used for tours in major performing arts centers such as the Kennedy Center.
This agreement can be used by commercial or non-profit producers for limited or unlimited races. It includes both musical and dramatic productions and is the only agreement with provisions that allow non-resident foreign actors to work in the United States. In June 2001, a plan of 401 (k) was added to the agreement. MassMutual offers financial services to help players save for retirement. The payment of Pro-1 is required whenever the actor must rehearse and/or perform in the city of “Point of Organization” (New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles or San Francisco). For many decades, this agreement was negotiated with the League of American Theatres and Producers. Buena Vista Theatrical Ventures (Walt Disney Company) and the former SFX Company each negotiated individual agreements. Cabaret agreement. This agreement applies to productions presented in cabaret theatres where the majority of the audience sits at tables.
In most cases, meals and/or drinks are served. Performances are limited to 8 per week, with no more than two per day. Performances must not exceed 90 minutes. Visits are not allowed. University/resident-theatre association contract (URTA). The URTA agreement includes four minimum wage levels based on weekly gross cash and the number of benefits. This is available for colleges and universities, which regularly employ professional actors and stage directors to perform with students. Visit the URTA website for more information on the assignment. Western Civic Light Opera (WCLO). The WCLO agreement is used in non-profit music theatres in the western region.
Travel is permitted between WCLO theatres and, in certain circumstances, in theatres that are not signatories to the WCLO agreement.
