STAGEHANDS AND PROJECTIONISTS

Independent Theatrical Employees of America (ITEA) Stagehands Local #1 are required to work all Stanley events. The calls and rates on the accompanying sheet are established by Local #1. All presenters are responsible for all other related employment expenses, including paying FICA taxes, writing payroll checks, and paying and reporting all related taxes including New York State unemployment taxes. The Stanley has an agreement with a company to be the “Employer of Record” and take on all of these requirements. Their rate is 21% (as of 2012) of the payroll bill. To arrange for all work by the stagehands, the presenter is responsible for contacting the Business Agent, Robert Giovinazzo at 315-725-4716.

FRONT OF HOUSE PERSONNEL

The Stanley Volunteers provide many front of house services including ticket takers, house captains, aisle captains, and seating ushers for all Stanley events.

SECURITY

Security services can be provided by a bonded independent contractor for this service. The security service provides security for both the performers and the patrons. The number of security personnel needed is determined by the presenter along with the Stanley management to ensure proper coverage of the building and its patrons. Factors that are taken into account are attendance, the artists’ requirements, the type of event, and the age of the patrons.

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT

Provisions of the Law applicable to The Stanley: The Americans with Disabilities Act is a comprehensive civil rights act which prohibits discrimination in a number of environments including places of public accommodation. Disabilities, under this act, also include blindness, hearing impairments and deafness, among other conditions. Since this law guarantees access to public accommodations, it provides an opportunity for presenters to increase audiences for Stanley events.

WHEELCHAIR LOCATIONS

Locations for 28 wheelchairs are positioned in four different areas on the main level of the theatre, with at least two price levels. Wheelchairs may be located in Orchestra Left Center, Right Center row O, and Left and Right rows FF and GG. Usually, the seats in row O are higher price tickets, and the seats in FF and GG reflect a lower price level. The seats are on skids, so we can arrange to have companions of wheelchair patrons sit next to them. Wheelchairs may gain access to the performing areas by use of the orchestra lift—which will raise up to stage level.

ASSISTIVE LISTENING SYSTEMS

The Stanley has an Assistive Listening System that is available to all patrons upon request. An I.D. is required as a security deposit.

INTERPRETERS

If a deaf person requires a qualified interpreter it is the responsibility of the presenter to be sure one is provided. It is entirely permissible to consult with the patron as to the type of interpreter needed (ASL or signed English) and the patron CANNOT be charged for the services of the interpreter(s). It is the responsibility of the presenter to provide seats within 50 feet of the stage for the use of only deaf and visually impaired patrons, with the understanding that these seats may be sold to the general public if these seats are not used by patrons with these disabilities.
