How do dress rehearsals work in ballet?

Since professional ballet productions have several casts, how do they manage dress rehearsals? Does each cast do one dress rehearsal? Does the opening cast do the dress rehearsal and then everyone else rehearses after opening night? How does it work?

Toronto indie band rehearsals...in a condo?

I live in the Annex of Toronto. My indie folk band has been rehearsing in my place, which I rent in a large apartment building, and there was never any problem. I just found out that in september I'll have to move into a condo with my sister. I don't own the condo but the important thing is that I won't be able to hold rehearsals because the people in the building like ultra-quietude. Where in Toronto can my band find very cheap rehearsal spaces for rent (we are based in the annex)? or, alternatively, how can I soundproof my apartment? [more inside]

Will anyone care/notice if I lived in a 24 hour music practice space?

I figure if a practice space is open 24 hours it would be hard for the staff to determine if I'm living there or just practicing music alllllll the time. However, I also figure that a 24 hour practice space expects that starving artists will be trying to live there. However however, I also figure that the kinda people running a 24 hour practice space are cool with people living there and are kinda trying to say "shhhhh, don't tell nobody but this is a place where we turn a blind eye to starving artists trying to live here". I just wanna beat on my drum all day. [more inside]

How to improv in a rehearsal of a written scene?

I'm looking for advice and resources on how to use improv to flesh out a written scene. I'm not looking for freestyle improv where you're trying to create a new situation, or general theater games, but a more targeted form of improv, where you already have a scene and characters and backstory and dialog, but you want to get the actors to exercise their imagination and flesh out the relationships rather than just play the dialog that's already on the page. What are some parameters? How involved should an improv scenario be in this situation? Should you tell the actors where to end up? How far do you let it go?

How to rehearse a (radio) play

I've written a radio play, and I'm meeting the cast tomorrow for a rehearsal. This is the first play I've written (let alone a radio play) and I've never acted in anything either, so any hints and tips about how to run a rehearsal smoothly would be greatly appreciated, especially anything that relates especially to radio drama.

where can I pre-present my paper?

I have to do a 45 minute presentation at a summit next month. I need to give this presentation the practice it deserves. But, everyone is on vacation in England and the school year does not begin until after the summit. I am in England, I have little money, and I really need an audience who know about social enterprise and journalism to tell me what I need to do more clearly for this presentation. can you give me any advice? the conference is in four weeks.

Who's the host and what does he do?

Emergency etiquette question: A family member is the father of the groom for a wedding this weekend. He and the groom's mother are divorced. He has behaved very well towards her, but she tries to get between him and his grown children. He was told today that she has arranged for a college friend of the groom to be the "emcee" for the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night. The invitations for this dinner were issued in both parents's names. The groom is oblivious to this issue and his father wants him to remain so. What should the father do? He was under the impression that HE was the host and would be acting as such but he has been essentially excluded from the planning process for this dinner. Any advice, experiences that are similar, clarification of the role of the father or of an "emcee" for a rehearsal dinner would be very helpful.

We need a place to jam.

My friend's band needs a rehearsal space in or around Jacksonville FL, for about a week, starting the week of July 7th. Does anyone know of or have a place? Four guys and equipment, nothing fancy. Their other place cancelled on them at the last minute.
