Appx 1 Part 3 of the DCP Constitution: DEPARTMENTS STRUCTURE AND FUNCTIONS
The majority of the actual work on a production is done through the theatrical production departments. Each department consists of a department manager and as many other people as the department manager deems necessary. It is the managers responsibility to fill all roles within his department.
It may seem that there are quite a few departments in the theatrical production. Each department is a working group with a specific and unique set of tasks. Under the direction of a department manager, the members of the department work together to complete the mandated tasks.
The department manager may confer with his members for ideas and suggestions, but the responsibility for making decisions rests solely with the department manager.
In order to fulfill the departments requirements, avoid burn-out, and still have fun, it is recommended that each person involved in the production choose only one department to work in and only one role.
