Policy Manual

Over the past few years the Shuswap Theatre Board has been writing and updating policies to ensure the smooth and effective running of the theatre. This is an ongoing task. We also have many historic policies and job descriptions from our old Theatre Handbook. It is our intention to post all of these policies on this page so that the information is available to anyone working on a production. Some of these policies are still in draft form and have not yet been adopted. We include them anyway on the belief that it is better to have draft information than none at all. If the policy has been formally adopted then it will have the “Date Adopted” filled in. Some policies have the word “Historic” instead of a date, to indicate that the date of adoption is unknown. If the field is left blank then it is still in draft form.
