In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Cincinnati Shakespeare Groundlings and/or Juniors, I, a participant who has reached the age of majority or, if not yet having reached the age of majority, a legal guardian on behalf of said participant, hereby through this Release and Waiver of Liability, Waiver of Publicity, and Indemnification Agreement (“Release”) release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company (“CSC”), its parents, subsidiaries or other affiliates, officers, members, directions, agents or employees (“Releasees”) from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions and causes of action of any kind or nature arising out of or related to any loss, damage or injury, including death, that I or any of my property may sustain resulting from my participation in or in any way connected with my participation in such Cincinnati Shakespeare Groundlings and/or Juniors activities, regardless of whether such loss is caused by the negligence of the Releasees and regarding of whether such liability arises in tort, contract, strict liability or otherwise. I further covenant and agree to hold harmless the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage or costs, including attorneys’ fees and court costs, which may arise out of or related to my participation in Cincinnati Shakespeare Groundlings and/or Juniors activities, whether caused by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, including as a result of negligent rescue operations. In the event of an emergency, I authorize CSC to secure from any licensed hospital, physician or medical personnel any treatment deemed necessary for my immediate care, including but not limited to emergency surgery. I agree that I will be responsible for payment of any and all medical services rendered. I agree that if I become ill, disruptive, or otherwise unable to finish a Cincinnati Shakespeare Groundlings and/or Juniors activity or all the activities, I will be required to arrange for removal of my participation including but not limited to reasonably immediate pickup by a third party or other authorized representative and that any inappropriate behavior as deemed by CSC shall be cause for immediate and non-refundable dismissal from the Cincinnati Shakespeare Groundlings and/or Juniors. Further, should a situation arise in which it becomes necessary for me to return home due to medical reasons, disciplinary reasons or otherwise, I assume all responsibility and transportation costs arising from said situation. I hereby irrevocably permit, authorize and license Releasees to display, publicly perform, exhibit, transmit, broadcast, reproduce, record, photograph, digitize, modify, alter, edit, adapt, create derivative works, exploit, sell, rent, license, otherwise use and permit others to use my name, image, likeness, appearance, voice, professional and personal biographical information and all materials created by or on behalf of the Releasees that incorporate any of the foregoing (hereinafter, the “Materials”) on a perpetual basis throughout the world and in any medium or format whatsoever now existing or hereafter created, including but not limited to, in and on print publications and the internet, and for the future marketing efforts for CSC including but not limited to advertising, public relations, publicity, packaging and promotion of CSC and its affiliates and their businesses, products and services without further consent from or royalty, payment or other compensation to me. I hereby irrevocably transfer and assign to CSC my entire right, title and interest, if any, in and to the Materials and all copyrights in the Materials arising in any jurisdiction throughout the world. I understand that there are no refunds. I further covenant and agree that this Release shall be construed in accordance with the law of the State of Ohio. Any portion of this Release deemed unlawful or unenforceable is severable and shall be stricken without any effect on the enforceability of the Release as a whole to the full extent authorized by law.
