What's a performance agreement?
With so many types of live performance, and so many details that go into making a show a success, it’s important to have an agreement that covers the specifics of the costs, staging needs, tech requirements, set-up, take-down, and more. There are also business considerations such as deposits, cancellations, merchandising opportunities, etc. A performance agreement lays out the details of the responsibilities and expectations for both the performer(s) and the party hiring them.
Here's the info you'll need to have handy to complete your doc:
Who it's coming from
Determine if a business or individual is sending the doc and have the name and contact info ready.
Who it's going to
Know who this doc is going to and have the individual or business name and contact info ready.
Be clear about the general subject and terms of the agreement, including the performance itself, as well as fees, deposits, and other financial considerations.
For a live performance, there are often unique conditions required to allow the performer to give their best performance. Be prepared with information relating to details such as dressing room accommodations, electrical and other tech requirements, and additional personnel. This will take a little time, but it’s to protect your interests now so you don’t have issues later.
Dates and times
Have your requirements for the date and time of the performance, but also the length of performance, breaks (if any), and the time to set up and take down.
