Lipscomb Theatre Photography Policy
Due to copyright laws, photography or video recording of theatre performances is strictly prohibited on Lipscomb University's campus. Some performances may allow pre-show photography and such permission will be specifically noted in the printed program for those performances.
Professional still photography for promotional or journalistic purposes is available upon request. Alternatively, press photographers may be admitted to a 10-minute photo call at a dress rehearsal one or two days before the opening of the show if a written request is made no less than five (5) business days before the opening of the show. The specific time of that photo opportunity will be determined at the discretion of the chair of Lipscomb University's Department of Theatre. Dress rehearsal photo call details will be shared with photographers after written requests are received. To request a dress rehearsal photo call credential for a production, email Beki.Baker@lipscomb.edu.
Please note that productions in collaboration with professional theatre companies will defer to the policies of that company.
