When the show is over, the students need to get out of costumes, hang up their costumes, and put away props, etc. We also need to pick up trash from backstage. Then the students are dismissed for the evening.

When the show is over, students need to participate in strike which is when we tear down the set, lights, and sound equipment. We also must clean up backstage. Then the students are dismissed for the day. We should complete strike around 5:00pm
