LOWELL HALL USE
Lowell Hall is a FAS classroom Monday through Friday, 8am to
3pm. Standing rehearsals, both faculty conducted and student lead,
are scheduled Monday though Thursday afternoons and evenings, Saturdays
until 3pm and all day Sunday. Rehearsals are occasionally scheduled
for Friday afternoons. Standing rehearsals are generally not moved.
Events are scheduled Fridays and
Saturdays during term time. In most cases, space access for Friday events will begin
at 3pm, Saturday events at noon. On selected dates, access may be another time indicated on the application form.
Food and drink are not allowed in Lowell Lecture Hall. The space
is not suitable for banquets or receptions. Food is allowed in the five basement classrooms. These rooms will be scheduled along with the hall reservation in order to support the event as dressing rooms or warm up space.
Only officially recognized FAS student organizations may request
Lowell Hall event dates.
The event must be appropriate for the venue and the production scope
must be feasible. Events requiring numerous rehearsals, major technical
support and/or complex set up may not be appropriate for Lowell Hall.
"Tech weeks" are not available. Call the Production Office
at 617.495.5595 if you have questions about these issues before applying
for an event date.
Note: In an effort to support a broad scope of student activities, a student organization's traditional access to other campus venues (i.e. Sanders Theatre, Paine Hall) may be a consideration during terms when the number of Lowell Hall event requests exceeds the available performance dates. In other words, a group with a performance scheduled in Sanders Theatre during a particular semester may not receive priority scheduling for Lowell Hall.
Applications are reviewed in the order that they are received, however
history, event scope and weekend "fit" play factors in scheduling. Note that groups are not "grandfathered" from one year to the next. A particular date scheduled one year does not insure the same date will be available or granted to the same group the following year.
Recognized student organizations may request a Lowell Hall event
date for one Friday or Saturday per semester. Friday and Saturday
(consecutive dates) requests are considered, but are less likely to
Rehearsal and technical time is extremely limited. In addition to the
usual 3pm or 6pm access on the day of the event, we will
schedule one two-hour block per event, usually 10pm to 12am on Wednesday or Thursday, for
technical preparation or rehearsal. All activity in Lowell Hall must
end promptly so that the space can be clear at midnight.
If other time becomes available in a given week, it will be scheduled
for upcoming events accordingly. Again, "tech weeks" are not possible;
standing rehearsals are not moved. Events requiring
more tech or rehearsal time than described here may not be suitable
for Lowell Hall.
***Lowell Hall dates granted to student groups are for one performance only. Proposals for additional performances on single day will be reviewed by the Memorial Hall Production Office on a case by case basis (prior history does not guarantee future approval). If access time is limited, multiple performances may not be approved.***
