Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

It’s Friday! Time for a tip!

We’ve got a private Halloween show tomorrow night and the careful way Scratch set up the order of acts inspired this tip.

Make life easier for your stage hands with the show order.

If possible, put numbers with an elaborate set up at the start of a set and follow with a simple one. Put numbers with a complicated clean up at the end of a set. If two performers need a table or other similar set piece (and the acts aren’t too thematically similar), put them back to back.
