I'm Flying!
« on: Sep 07, 2016, 12:29 am »
Well, I finally decided to join the network! For a while, I didn't think of myself as a true stage manager until I decided that it was going to be my career choice, and here I am! I am currently 21 years old, and live in the city of Chicago!

In all of the shows I have worked on, I haven't had anything bizarre happen to me (yet) BUT, this summer I was able to work on a production of Perer Pan that, instead of using a fly system, used a Flying Gym Pole; the first time it has ever been seen in the US! I think that's pretty cool. It was a scary tech week for me though...

I hadn't heard of a flying gym pole before, so had to look it up. Intriguing using it on Peter Pan. Thanks for the new-to-me term!

And, welcome!
