Article 2, Part 5 – Use of University Premises and Facilities
§ 2-508 Special Provisions for Use of the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts
The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts is a unit of the College of Fine and Applied Arts and has a dual purpose: first, to provide educational facilities in the performing arts for the School of Music, Departments of Theater and Dance, and University Bands, including public performances sponsored by these departments and the Krannert Center; second, to provide the university community, the local community, and the state with a cultural program of performances by university groups and professionals in the many fields of the performing arts.
In view of (a) above, the following are the special conditions regarding the use of space in the center:
In the public performing areas of the Krannert Center, namely the Foellinger Great Hall, the Festival Theatre, the Colwell Playhouse, the Studio, the Amphitheatre, and appropriate adjunct areas, the following priorities shall be followed:
events that are related to the performing arts and are cosponsored or presented in conjunction with the Krannert Center by one or more of the designated academic units: School of Music, Departments of Theatre and Dance, and University Bands, all of which offer instruction in the performing arts.
events that are related to the performing arts and are sponsored and presented by the Krannert Center.
events related to the performing arts that are approved by the director for the cosponsorship by the center with those organizations listed in Part 3 of this Article. In addition, a limited number of conferences may be scheduled when space permits and for which fees are charged.
In the rehearsal rooms of the Krannert Center, priorities with respect to reservations of space will be given as follows:
to course work and production rehearsals that fall within the educational and performing programs of the academic units of the School of Music, Departments of Theatre and Dance, and University Bands
to performing programs sponsored or cosponsored by the center
Only those events that fall within the classification described in subsection (1)(C) above require that the cosponsoring organization receive “event approval” by the director of the Office of Registered Organizations and/or the Office of the Registrar.
Requests for space for entertainment events in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts must be received not less than twelve weeks prior to the date of the proposed event. Requests received after twelve weeks will be considered. However, they may be denied if there is insufficient time to prepare adequately for the proposed event.
Decisions of the Committee on the Use of Facilities under § 2‑508(a)(2) shall apply only to cosponsored events covered by subsection (1)(C) above; and if such decisions in the adjudication of conflicts affect the educational program of any department, they shall be referred by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs to the appropriate dean for action.
Decisions of the Coordinating Committee on Entertainment Events concerning professional attractions shall be final in the resolution of conflicts between the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and other agencies responsible for sponsoring or cosponsoring professional events. (See §§ 2‑507(c) and (d).)
In all cases of cosponsorship, contractual and financial arrangements will be in accord with recommended procedures established by the Coordinating Committee on Entertainment Events, the Office of Business and Financial Services, and the University Legal Counsel.
