A Code of Ethics for Theater Workers

Tags: Drama
A Code of Ethics for Theatre Workers - Developed in 1945 for the Circle Players Theater in Los Angeles.  The code consists of seventeen common sense, stringent and binding rules to follow for actors and others engaged in the work of the theatre.  While now almost 70 years old, literally everything stated remains vital, practiced and relevant.  The following is excerpted from the forward to the code:  “A part of the great tradition of the theatre is the code of ethics which belong to every worker in the theatre. This code is not a superstition, nor a dogma, nor a ritual which is enforced by tribunals; it is an attitude toward your vocation, your fellow workers, your audiences and yourself. It is a kind of self-discipline which does not rob you of your invaluable individualism.  Those of you who have been in show business know the full connotation of these precepts. Those of you who are new to show business will soon learn. The Circle Players, since its founding in 1945, has always striven to stand for the finest in theatre, and it will continue to do so..." The complete code post can be found at:  http://www.lastagetimes.com/2009/08/a-1945-code-of-ethics-for-theatre-workers-surfaces/
