Stage Management: Plays & Musicals / MORALE: Excitement
« on: Mar 31, 2006, 03:36 am »
Sometimes we get discouraged about shows. especially when a purely usually popular show is loosing money, or no one is coming to see it, or you're just bumed about the show, or something around those lines. What do you do to get more excited about it?


Students and Novice Stage Managers / Rehearsals: Be quiet!
« on: Mar 21, 2006, 03:03 am »
how do you help people be silent during rehearsals instead of talking and not focusing? (i'm dealing with high school seniors here. :roll: ) I have started to duck tape a sucker into their mouth, but when they're dancing, that's totally dangerous, and this also doesn't work on the people who have speaking roles. Does anybody have any suggestions? :?  8O  :?:

Ok. I feel really stupid asking this question, because i have no idea. but i know that it will be answered. What is the difference between a Production Stage Manager and a Stage Manager and a Co. Stage Manager... :lol:

Stage Management: Plays & Musicals / MORALE: Tech week
« on: Mar 19, 2006, 11:54 pm »
I am entering a certain week we all know about... One simple question: if everyone is frusterated (high school theatre) about the show and hate the director, then how do you keep everyone from killing each other during TECH WEEK?

(let me remind you that i am a senior at my high school in Orem UTAH.)

Help. Really. I am dealing this year as a senior who has lost her director to a blood clott. Some of you from Utah might even know her... Syd Riggs... She died last june and i am still stage managing with a director who is totally different. that is saying it really really nice. It feels like she does things her way that SHE thinks will benefit everyone, when it doesn't benefit anything or anyone. the actors hate her, i dislike her, and on the verge of not trying to stop people from killing her. she expects EVERYONE to drop everything (our part-time jobs and silently including school work) and work on the show... Tech Designers and Grips as well.... she wants them to come 3 weeks before a usual tech week...

there used to be almost 20 people in the tech class... including people who does community theatre, and now there's only about 14 of them. they are really close friends and if one more of them drop out of the class because of something that they can't stand from this director anymore they all will drop out... and i won't have ANY tech for this show. they actualy are about to. she spent most of the money we rent mics out for on costumes for next year. as in... we already don't have mics for this show unless a miracle happens.

oh-listen to this: she used to be a junior high choir teacher.

I am her guinea pig this year and it is bugging me ... a lot. no one wants to show up for rehearsals, and i am trying to stay strong and be there for everyone. i don't think it's working anymore.

Am i just grieving still, am i just not used to her style, is there anything i can do to help myself cope, or just, what should i do? :cry:
