Show Report

Show reports are intended to give the creative team and managers of a production a feel for how consistently the show is running and whether there are any concerns that need to be addressed. Remember that this is only one example- it is often helpful to check with the director/producer whether there is specific information they would like to see included. Any action points should also be mentioned to the person directly. This report can be used for a touring or resident show, and was created by Heather Rose from house.
