Happy International Stage Manager Day!

Did anyone's cast/crew/etc. do anything special for them today, even if it's just a smile and a hug?

Got a few nice words from current and past casts, but one brought up a good point: why isn't our holiday on a Monday when the theatre is dark?

amusingly, in listing it as Oct 10 (so it rotates days) some folks asked why 10/12 hadn't been chosen - and we agreed that amusing as that was, it referenced a long, long work day and we'd rather have a moment to celebrate.

I got Rice Krispy Treats and a bottle of Vodka from my cast.

To celebrate, the universe gave me my first ever missing actor from a cast of three! The performance he missed was prep for a mini-tour, which meant he was responsible for sound cues, scene changes, and played 6 different characters. Luckily the playwright was still in town and stepped in while I called lights and ran sound while crouched behind the set backstage and giving the playwright his entrance cues.

I celebrated by going home after the performance  :P
