The Actors Contract

Details are emerging about the new contract between actors and producers. “The pact includes an annual 3% wage increase over the contract’s four-year life, along with “meaningful increases in health-fund contributions” to stabilize the fund “for the foreseeable future.” The two sides have also agreed to experiment with a new tiered salary system for national tours. The current weekly minimums under the old Production pact are $1,354 for actors in a musical or play. For stage managers the minimum stands at $2,225 for a musical and $1,913 for a play.”
