PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING: *
I realize that this is not just another stage production, theatrical presentation or community acting company. IT IS A MINISTRY. It is a strong thrust in our efforts to reach the lost. Therefore, it is with great desire and commitment to the Lord that I agree to support and participate in all of the rehearsals and performances scheduled. If for some reason—other than unforeseen, extenuating circumstances—I am unable to participate in either a rehearsal or performance, I will inform the Artistic Director or BTS Dept Leader PRIOR to my absence.

CODE OF CONDUCT *
As a participant in the Family Christian Center’s and Refuge Production’s Performing/Creative Arts Ministry, I understand and agree to the following: • I will respect myself, other people, other people’s property, and the church property. • I will be an encourager, not one who ridicules, makes fun of, or criticizes. • I will deal peacefully with anger and disagreements. • I will participate and contribute in a positive way in all rehearsals and/or performances and obey the instructions of the P/C Arts staff. • During rehearsals and/or performances I will show respect by not causing disruptions and not talking unless called on to respond. • I will use language that reflects a Christian attitude. I will not use curse words or other foul language. • I will maintain my witness by keeping my hands to myself: no tickling, wrestling, piggyback rides or inappropriate touching (which means: do not touch anyone anywhere that a bathing suit would cover). In addition, physical displays of affection such as kissing, full body hugs, sitting on laps, and lying or sleeping next to each other are inappropriate and being isolated or alone with another P/C Arts member is not allowed. • I will wear modest clothing. No clothing that is sexually suggestive or spiritually degrading. T-shirts or other clothing with evil, vulgar, illegal, or inappropriate content will not be permitted unless approved of for a specific scene by the Costume Dept. In addition there should be: no midriffs, no low-cut tops, no see-through clothing, and no sagging pants (no boxers or underwear showing) unless approved of for a specific scene by the Costume Dept. Dress shorts or jean shorts must have at least a 3 inch inseam, and athletic shorts must be properly fitting with an inseam of at least 2.5 inches (not rolled up). • I will not use cell phones, iPods, cameras or other personal electronic or entertainment devices during rehearsals and/or performances unless approved of for a specific scene. • I will not possess a gun, long blade knife, or any other weapon at any rehearsals and/or performances. • I will not use, possess or be under the influence of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana or other illegal drugs at any rehearsals and/or performances. • I will not engage in sexual intimacy or sexual harassment, and will not possess pornography at any rehearsals and/or performances.
