Just a heads-up. On Saturday, we would like to call people at noon. At least, that’s when cast will be called. Crew will be called somewhat earlier, and the stage manager will be contacting them, individually. At noon, we will get everyone hooked up with body mics, I will run through a few last bits of tweaking with selected actors, and then we will do a run of the play. After that, will take a break. The break may actually be for a couple of hours. The reason for this, largely, is that doing it a full performance of any show is exhausting. I know from personal experience that a little bit of downtime is essential. Anyway, after that, we will do something called a cue-to-cue. That’s where we go through the show and adding on all of the sound and light cues, but we will jump ahead over moments where there are no significant sound or light changes that are added. That allows us to perfect our sound and light cues, and it also saves a bit of time.
