Task Details

Order Vocal Scores

First ask the Music Director which edition of the vocal score they are using. Email the cast to let them know which score to buy and the source. Contact the Webmaster to have the information posted on the Web Site Cast Page. Check to locate and verify if any old vocal scores may already be in the Savoyards' collection. The Chairman may be able to help locate old scores.

Update Sales Forms

Online Pre-order for Shirts (T shirts/sweat shirts): Producer will select the T shirt vendor and determine prices. Internal sales (or producer) will communicate with the webmaster to provide the information needed for webmaster to put up pre-order form and coordinate PayPal. Webmaster will send list of sales (and whether they have paid via PayPal) to Internal Sales Chief. The first round of T-shirts/sweat shirts will be ordered in time to deliver at the Two Ring. A second order will be needed after auditions, in time for delivery at the first rehearsal.

Avoid taking orders for anything other than special-ordered clothes or a DVD or photo. Orders musts be accompanied by payment in full. Also it's much simpler if all items cost an even number of dollars -- consult with the Producer on prices, and leave room to break even despite unsold or lost goods.

Internal Sales uses two forms.
(1)Internal Sales DVD Photo Order Slip (PDF) to take orders for DVDs, Photo CD's, and cast photos.
(2)Internal Sales Sales Slip (PDF) for sale of items during the run.

These two forms should be printed on different color paper. Please see Related Documents for additional document format(s). Forms should include date, name of Savoyard, amount paid, and whether item was delivered or ordered. Pre-Orders are best for the Show DVD and Cast Photos using a separate slip for each individual. Alternately, a sales receipt pad may be used to track sales during rehearsals (keeping the copy), and keep a running inventory list.

It is important for other members of the company, including those on the management team, not to give out items and tell people to pay Internal Sales later. It's fine for comp scores to be given to specific tech disciplines and Internal Sales to be notified that has been done, but it's not fair to Internal Sales to do this with items that need to be paid for. The only exception, until we have a solution, is often for getting scores to newly-cast leads.

Money to Treasurer

Give sales income and cash deposits to Treasurer, ideally weekly. Make sure to specify the amounts for each category (sales, shirts, tapes, etc.. ). Us a transfer form that includes a breakdown of what that money is for, is signed by Internal Sales and give it in duplicate to the treasurer with the batch of money, the treasurer signs both and returns one to Internal Sales as a receipt for their records. Please see Related Documents for a sample form.

DVD/Photo Orders

Insist that people sign up and pay prior to Monster Sunday (include the shipping charge if materials will arrive after the production ends). This helps eliminate handling money at the performance space. Prices will be set by the Producer with input from the videographer and the photographer. Order 2 extra DVDs/photos for the archives and to loan to radio and cable TV stations.

Order DVDs/Photos

Place order with videographer and photographer. Give all collected money to the Treasurer. Get dates from videographer/photographer as to when materials will be ready.

Back to Quick List

Deliver Mail Photos and DVDs

If at all possible deliver the Cast Photo and DVD at the Strike Party or an earlier performance if they are ready. Otherwise mail/deliver cast photos and DVDs
