Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

It’s Friday! Today is also the penultimate performance of Vamps After Midnite! We’ve been having so much fun with this show and last night we had a special guest in the audience — Devora Darling! It was so good to see her in person.

Here’s your tip!

Know exactly where your props are at the top of the show.

Is this tip inspired by an actual incident? Maybe…

Before the show starts, check over your props and know where they are. If someone else is bringing them on for you, make sure you both know how and where that transfer will happen (do you hand them over before you go on stage? are they on a prop table back stage? &c.). It’s your responsibility as a performer to make sure your props are in good working order and in the correct location.

I’ve already written about kindergarten rules (aka respecting the property of others) which continue to apply. Take care of your own stuff and don’t mess with anyone else’s.
