Introductions / Hello from Australia
« Last post by EmmaStirling on Sep 15, 2019, 08:42 am »
Hi guys!

My name is Emma, I'm a Stage Management student at WAAPA and I had my first SM role in 2017, at 16 years of age. I'm really excited to be a part of this community as I'm always keen to receive advice and tips, and to meet people who have the same passion for technical theatre as me  :)  I've been spectating on this site for a while now so I thought it was time for me to introduce myself.

At university, I've worked in several ASM roles for plays and musicals such as 'When the Rain Stops Falling' and 'Cry-Baby', and once as a DSM for a dance show. Next year I'll get the opportunity to SM and I cannot be more excited!

Syracuse Stage and The Syracuse University Department of Drama have their theatre in the same complex.  In all lobbies, there is signage that reads:

"Syracuse Stage and the Syracuse University Department of Drama acknowledge with respect the Onondaga Nation, fire keepers of the Haudenosaunee, the indigenous people on whose ancestral lands Syracuse University now stands."

There is, currently, no live speech made prior to performances.

We did it with a projection. But we did much of the show with projections as the scenery anyway.

Hello SM friends,

Has anyone done Matilda the Musical? Went to BTDT but Matilda didn't show up in the search.  Wondering if the magic chalk board scene really can be accomplished with a large piece of chalk with a metal insert and a magnet on the back of the board? The chalk has to write a few sentances that the audience needs to be able to see.  (I'd prefer video image of this myself.) I'm helping with some advice on the show.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Stage Management: Other / Re: Not allowed to use spike tape

Can you simply take a few measurements from the lip of the stage and set daily mandatory spikes?

You might do a search, as there was a long discussion of suggestions a few years back. But one solution has been sidewalk chalk, which washes off after rehearsal.
