Stage Management: Other / Re: Tips for Outdoor theatre

A Child Wrangler that is NOT part of the Stage Management Team

I, too, feel for you.
You cannot change the actions of others; you can only change your response to them.
Some people are a-holes - grasping at straws and hanging on for dear life. Their situation is a scary one.

Always respect yourself and your sense of right and wrong. Learn from EVERY experience. GROW...
Allow others their path. Stay true to your own...

I am looking for GOD OF CARNAGE; NOT a photocopy of the Sam French booklet splayed on a page but a worthwhile copy we can actually use!
Thanks In Advance!

The Hardline / Re: AEA breaks during run throughs?
« on: Sep 23, 2018, 01:55 pm »
Upon first glance of the SPT rulebook, I can find no rule relieving you of the obligation to take breaks. That is NOT to say its not there; I just cant find it. I am familiar though, with that rule in other rulebook. HOWEVER - an hour and 45 minutes running time for any theatrical presentation is a ... mouthful. Perhaps while still in rehearsal, the Director can find an appropriate place to take a very well-deserved break. Technical run-throughs, with all the bells and whistles - IF YOU DON'T STOP, can be run without a break, regardless of the running time. If the run-through is stopped FOR ANY REASIN, IMHO, that constitutes the need for a break.

I would say if you are a non-Equity Stage Manager, you should let the AEA members have the room, do their business and report out to you. IMHO

and I now have a night-light in my kit!

Or - if you can't get in touch with anyone to help advise you immediately - I suggest you stagger the mealbreak to allow your Team their proper break time and the proper time to set up for the Designer Run.

This may have already happened; what was your decision and the outcome?

IMHO - unless the Director has already put together a detailed rehearsal schedule, you won't know until the night before. Be sure and include what scenes you will be working on and the props you will need for those scenes in each nightly rehearsal report.
Ask for "do-fers" if the actual show props are not available yet. Use please and thank you. A lot...
