Work Leave “In special cases there is a temporary work leave on a daily basis for important reasons, such as, for example, when the wife gives birth, moving to another place for professional reasons, to obtain a new job (cf. § 39 NV Bühne). In the case of work leave, the requirements of the theater must be taken into account”
This is usually easily worked out between you and the theater but remember that you have a right to get released for auditions, particularly when your contract has ended, whether by your choice or the theater’s. Naturally you can’t miss a scheduled performance or important rehearsal, but the right to seek new work is very strong.
