PRESS NOTES

A note about attending rehearsals of Bluecoats programs: Media coverage of Bluecoats rehearsals is tightly controlled. Media will only be allowed access to rehearsals, including photography and videography, with prior approval of the Bluecoats CEO or CFO/COO. Attendance as a media representative requires proper credentials distributed by the Bluecoats administration. Such credentials are non-transferrable and valid only for the authorized date and location. For rehearsal access permission, please write press@bluecoats.com. We cannot field requests for permission via phone or fax, or from any other email address. If you are on-site at a Bluecoats rehearsal and wish media access, please visit the administration bus. Any media personnel found on rehearsal property without the proper credential will be asked to leave.

A note about copyright and licensing of material rehearsed and performed by Bluecoats’ programs: Most of the material that you will see Bluecoats rehearsing and performing is covered under various expressed copyrights. Bluecoats has obtained the licensing to arrange and perform any third-party works, but such licensing extends only to our public performances, and in some cases, our own uploading and/or streaming. Bluecoats makes no claim of responsibility for media coverage that violates the rights of copyright holders of our work. It is the media’s responsibility to use b-roll, rehearsal footage, performance footage, and imagery responsibly and with the proper licensing and attribution. Furthermore, Bluecoats reserves all rights to its own brand, and to the creative work it owns including its shows and creative content. All coverage using footage and photography owned by Bluecoats requires proper attribution.
