Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Once again it’s snowing, although we had almost spring-like weather midweek… Here’s your tip! This one is for producers and stage managers:
Print out the order of the acts. Make sure at least one copy goes back stage for the performers. There should also be one for the host, one for each tech person, and one for the stage hand(s).
If you’re really good, the list for the sound person will have notes for them, like “fade down host’s music” or “start performer’s music when she picks up the bottle”. The stage hand list should note anything special that needs to be set or cleared.
