Not to be confused with Standby and Swing.
An understudy is a member of the ensemble who performs every night in their role in the ensemble. The understudy learns the lines and blocking of one lead role and is able to assume the role at a moment's notice when required. If the Understudy assumes a lead role, a Swing will cover the Understudy's ensemble role.
