Frequently Asked Questions

During the 2020-21 virtual academic year, PAC Executive Board waived the requirement for performances for the fall of 2020 and spring of 2021. Always check with your current PAC Exec Board, but under lockdown and quarantine, you’re unlikely to be penalized if you forfeit performance in favor of virtual rehearsals, virtual workshops, or virtual socialization.

Editing and production costs for your one, primary performance of the semester will typically be covered as SAC Contingency Funding requests, which should be submitted at least 1 month in advance of purchases. If you have surplus in your SAC account, you may use these funds for equipment.
