Hello, I 'm a newbie
« on: Apr 09, 2014, 12:29 pm »
I have been involved in community theatre for 25 years and have worked on and off the stage in every capacity. I am presently producing dinner theatre for a company in our city. One of the things I love about community theatre is the unpredictability of events as the show progresses.The scariest challenge I was faced with happened most recently when our sound tech quit dress rehearsal night. After a ten minute crash course in running the sound board I ran through the cues without a hitch. Unfortunately openeing night was a disaster. Luckily it was a comedy and the audience had a good laugh. I took a lot of good natured ribbing and vowed never to run the sound board again. Note to self...have a back up sound tech.

Hi and welcome to the boards! It's always nervewracking to deal with last-minute changes, but it sounds like you handled yours with a sense of humor. Welcome!
