Theater Musicians Take Note!
This past September, Diamond Head Theatre began its third season under our new Collective Bargaining Agreement, with a step up in the per-service rate. The union theatre musicians negotiated a 24 percent increase in rate over the previous agreement. New paid doubling rules, rehearsal break rules, etc. are being adhered to. Please let other theaters without union agreements know that the bar has been raised at DHT to $90 per three-hour service. Paliku and Manoa Valley Theaters are still far below this rate. At the next round of negotiations, we hope to get the rate closer to the book rate of $134 per service for Community Theater.
