If your expenses are high and most of your production budget is costed, you should have no problem qualifying for this agreement. The main concern of the CAEA is that the actors be paid what has been agreed. If you think it is plausible that the profits of the fund are very high, you could always add it to the income-sharing agreement with your artists. The idea is that CAEA will present the guidelines for an agreement between artists and producers and expect such an agreement to be in effect before rehearsals begin. Disney World Agreement. This agreement concerns the theater actors of Walt Disney World in Orlando. Disney`s health insurance is available. The Disney deal is managed from the Orlando office. INDIE 2.2 has conditions under which a theatre company has the right to use the agreement and under which a specified production is eligible.

A dinner-theatre. This agreement applies to theatres that present successive productions where dinners are served either in the same room where the performance is given or in an adjacent room. The Dinner Theatre agreements are negotiated separately for each dinner theatre in each region and have different pay scales. Each production should last no less than three weeks and the theatre must take place throughout the year. The advertised entrance fee must include both food and delivery; However, 25% of performances in a given week can only be done on a performance-based basis. Dinner-theatre agreements are not permitted in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles or San Francisco, except with equity`s permission. Visits are not allowed. The DOT Directive was first introduced in January 2016 and replaced the old Guest Artist Agreement. This directive allows Equity members in the three dance, opera and theatre disciplines to be hired for any production that is not covered by the CTA or ITA agreements. Normally, this agreement is used when a producing organization does not usually work with equity members – universities, colleges and drama schools often use this agreement.

This means that you must budget for 2 to 3 weeks (at least) one insurance per member of equity in your business. CAEA believes that rehearsals for festival shows may be part-time or disperse over several months, so they do not require insurance coverage for the duration of the sample. Only the week before the opening and the weeks of the festival. There is no provision in this policy to pay for weeks of partial work. Points i-iii are self-explanatory, but to clarify the reference to the minimum conditions of the ITA or CTA, this relates to weekly minimum wages in major agreements. To give you a sense of comparison, remember that each artist earns between $300 and $600 a week under INDIE 2.2; See above for minimum requirements for artists working in a G house (the smallest capacity theater – less than 200 people) in the ITA agreement.
