  1. Register the event via OrgSync to secure space. Browse available rooms to find the best one for your event or meet with an Event Consultant to discuss space options.
  2. Four weeks before the performance, secure performance rights for the scores or script and pay for them via a Treasury Request in OrgSync.
    • Your group must secure rights before you can perform the piece or pieces. Any performance without obtaining rights prior to the show is subject to cancellation.
    • If performance rights are waived for your group, make sure Student Activities has written confirmation on file prior to the performance.
  3. Set up a rehearsal schedule with your performers. Reserve space for your practice sessions by registering the event on OrgSync.
  4. Submit Treasury requests to secure the services for Facilities Management & Planning (FM&P)—including an electrician if using Morse Auditorium or the GSU—or speak to an activities consultant about potential FM&P needs.
