Strike night is the closing night of a production. The strike refers to the taking down and storing of all scenery, props, costumes, lights, etc. from the show. All actors and crew members are expected to fulfill assigned specified tasks following the last performance. With everyone helping, the task is easier and takes a shorter time. Generally actors will be dismissed 2 hrs into Strike – which may be followed by a non-alcoholic cast-and-crew party to which all major, minors and invited friends are welcome.
