Greetings from Oregon!
« on: Jan 11, 2018, 10:46 pm »
Hello Everyone!

I've been lurking here for a while, and I figured it was time for me to actually register. I'm an ASM in Portland, where I primarily work in children's theater. I do actually call shows from time to time as well, but I have more fun on deck.

I think my favorite experience as a SM happened a few years ago. I worked on a production of the Scottish play that performed in an old cemetery. There was a nesting pair of coopers hawks (I think) that were feuding with each other. They would chase each other at high speeds, about 10 feet above the audience, shrieking loudly the whole time. It was super on point with all the themes of nature going crazy that are in that show. There was also the day that a squirrel fell out of a tree right next to the stage... never a dull moment in outdoor theater!

I look forward to getting to know you all here!

Laura
