Get-ins and Get-outs
A number of Cambridge venues (most notably the ADC Theatre and the various professional theatres) host one or more shows per week, and consequently time in the venue can be extremely limited. Typically only a day or so, the get-in is the time available to set up the technical equipment before the final two run-throughs known as the technical rehearsal (scenery, lighting, sound and other technical cues are rehearsed until they run smoothly) and dress rehearsal (the entire play is performed with no stops to ensure the first performance will run without a hitch). The full team, technical and acting, needs to be present for both of these. The get-out occurs immediately after the last performance (unless there is another show in the space): the set is removed and all technical facilities in the venue reset to their standard settings and positions, ready for another show to get in the next day.
