High Point Theatre Fly System and Rigging Policy
The High Point Theatre strives to provide its users with a technically sound and well-running fly
system and its visitors a safe environment. Professional and city/state/federal safety guidelines
mandate such a policy. The Theatre technical staff is committed to working with clients to ensure
this policy is followed.
Much of this policy centers on personnel competencies and training. Anyone involved with the
flying of lighting, sound, and scenery must have the appropriate skills. The following is a list of
guidelines regarding these requirements:
!
!
!
The Head Flyman for all Theatre clients must be trained in theatrical counterweight
rigging, have professional experience as a flyman, and/or is a practicing flyman/rigger
with the IATSE labor union.
! This individual is responsible for the safe loading of equipment and scenery,
counterweights, and the operation of the system during loadin, performance(s),
and loadout.
! The Head Flyman is responsible for the direction of any additional flyman on the
rail, technicians loading/unloading counterweight, and technicians securing
lighting instruments, sound equipment, and scenery to battens and overhead
rigging.
Any additional flyman needed for technical calls and performances must be
accompanied by the Head Flyman while on the rail. These additional flyman must, at
a minimum, be instructed by Theatre technical staff on the proper usage of the
system.
Technicians responsible for loading and unloading counterweight must be instructed
by Theatre technical staff on the proper methodology and Theatre procedures.
It is the client’s responsibility to inform Theatre technical staff of their upcoming fly system/rigging
needs and related personnel requirements at least 30 days prior to the event. At this time, any
candidates the client wishes the Theatre to consider as qualified must be identified. If these
individuals meet the requirements, the client may use them. If the candidates can meet these
requirements through training by the Theatre’s staff, it is the client’s responsibility to arrange such
training in a timely manner.
If the client fails to obtain qualified technicians, the Theatre will either be forced to 1) ban fly
operations for the performance, or 2) hire IATSE flyman/riggers at the client’s expense.
The Theatre reserves the right to oversee and inspect client operations and rigging at all times.
Any situations the Theatre deems unsafe or inappropriate must be remedied immediately or the
facility will be subject to closure and performance cancellation.
