In this section, we will dive into the rules and regulations of the BCC (Broadway Casting Company). Aspiring actors and acting enthusiasts can familiarize themselves with the comprehensive guidelines and policies that play a crucial role in maintaining a safe and professional environment within our studio.

The Importance of Rules and Regulations in Performing Arts

When it comes to the performing arts, it is essential to have a structured framework that ensures the well-being of actors, the smooth functioning of auditions and rehearsals, and the overall success of productions. The BCC takes immense pride in prioritizing the safety and integrity of all those involved in the acting process.

Guidelines for Auditions

  • Preparation: Before attending an audition, candidates should thoroughly familiarize themselves with the specific requirements outlined in the audition notice. This includes preparing the necessary monologues and songs, as well as being well-rehearsed for potential improvisation exercises.
  • Punctuality: It is crucial for actors to arrive on time or even a few minutes early for their scheduled audition slots. This shows professionalism and respect for the casting team's time and the overall audition process.
  • Attire: Actors must dress appropriately for auditions, adhering to the suggested dress code provided in the audition notice. This helps create a positive first impression and showcases the actor's commitment to the craft.
  • Etiquette: During auditions, actors should maintain proper etiquette, such as actively listening, following directions, and offering gratitude to those involved in the casting process.

Policies for Rehearsals

Once actors have successfully auditioned and are cast in a production, there are specific rules and regulations that govern the rehearsal process. These guidelines have been put in place to ensure a collaborative and efficient environment where actors can fully immerse themselves in their roles.


Consistent attendance is crucial for the success of any production. Actors are expected to arrive on time and notify the appropriate personnel in case of any unavoidable delays or absences. Regular attendance enables the entire cast and crew to work together seamlessly, ensuring the timely progress of rehearsals.


Prior to rehearsals, actors are required to familiarize themselves with the provided script, develop their characters, and practice their assigned lines. This preparation enhances the quality of interactions and scenes during rehearsals, allowing for a more refined and impactful performance.

Respect and Collaboration

The rehearsal space is a collaborative and respectful environment where each actor's contribution is valued. Mutual respect, active listening, and open-mindedness significantly contribute to the overall growth and success of the production. The BCC strongly emphasizes the importance of maintaining professionalism and positive interactions at all times.

Performance Etiquette

As actors step onto the stage or set, there are specific protocols that ensure the smooth running of a performance. These guidelines enable actors to deliver their best work while maintaining the integrity of the production as a whole.

Focus and Concentration

During performances, actors are expected to maintain focus and concentration, staying in character and fully engaging with the scene. This level of commitment ensures that each performance is consistent and impactful, leaving a lasting impression on the audience.

Stage Movement

Proper stage movement is essential to avoid collisions, ensure visibility, and maintain the overall flow of the production. Actors must adhere to the choreographed blocking, respecting the predetermined positions and movements designed to enhance the performance.

Post-Performance Conduct

Following each performance, actors should acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of fellow cast members, crew, and the audience. This fosters a sense of camaraderie, professionalism, and gratitude within the BCC community.


At A Quest Actors Studio, we prioritize the establishment and enforcement of rules and regulations to provide our actors with a safe and professional platform to explore and showcase their talents. The comprehensive guidelines outlined by the BCC ensure that our productions meet the highest standards of excellence, setting us apart as a leading force in the Arts & Entertainment industry.
