You can decrease the amount of space between lines, use a slightly smaller font, decrease your margins, or let it spill on the next page and call the next page "77A".

Hi all!

Thank you for your advice with writing a new script. I have finished writing it, 60 pages later.

With regards to putting in the same page numbers, using the page break function helps if the text finishes in the script and not in my written one. But how do you go the other way - so in the copy I wrote, the first page of the script I was given runs on one page but in the one I wrote, that same page continues over two pages. How do you stop it doing this? So that it matches up exactly. Is it a case of playing with the formatting and seeing what works best? But then I don't want to end up with a script that has a variety of fonts and font sizes.

Thank you again for your help and for your help in this as well!

The New Post Button in Homework Help only shows up when you've made at least 5 posts, as is explained in the rules for that board. This post is locked until you've passed that threshold.

The Green Room / Any historians of turn of century rigging/ backstage?

hi!

i'm writing a short story in an opera around the turn of the century.  my "mc guffin" is revolves around a particular rigging.  I'm tapping in the dark as i'm not expert but I def wanna get it right.  I'd rather chat for a few minutes on the phone as I don't want my plot reveal on the boards.  although my story takes place in the past, I have a feeling an expert rigger today would have a good idea how to solve it. 

please email me if u have a few quick minutes to chat!  thanks  john

Students and Novice Stage Managers / Re: Stage Management Survey

I am curious how the idea for this survey came about.  I think it could (maybe?) be helpful but its results should be given limited weight.  Remember that the SM team works for the Producer and not for the cast, crew, or designers. 

It's certainly helpful to get perspective from everyone on your team, especially as to how your decisions and "bedside manner" impact them - but would this be more effectively done through relationship building and honest conversation; and during the production as opposed to after the curtain has come down for the final time?

Wow. I sure hope the SM team gets to complete a survey on the cast, crew, and designers for the same reason.
 

Ruth, no kidding!

Hello All,

I am trying to make an anonymous survey that the cast, crew, and design team completes regarding the Stage Management Team and if they have any criticisms or ways to improve. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should be asking?

Thanks in advance for your support!
