No, my ASM doesn't need a script ... he can just read over my shoulder.

Derek you're amazing!  I should've guessed you'd have one ...

Can someone tell me if it's possible to get a copy of the Equity handbook if you're not Equity?  I've been on the website & found the SM packet, which is just a packet of forms. 

I'm currently a senior undergrad, & although I'm not AEA or EMC, I'd like to have some knowledge of Equity rules before I graduate (I've seen many non-AEA job postings that request knowledge of Equity rules).  Unfortunatly, no one at my university is AEA or knows much about it. 

Sidenote -- I saw the posting about what universities DON'T tell you about unions ... mine is definately one of those & I feel like I'm at a huge disadvantage.  I'm worried about graduating & not knowing enough about the business side of theatre.

Wow ... I can't even imagine.  

I'm still in undergrad ... so 25 is about as big as we get (that's just under half the department probably)

How many ASM's do you have?

This is great for me ... I'm in the middle of my first musical (The Threepenny Opera).  We head into tech in about two weeks.

Musicals being harder has definately been my experience thus far.  I'm used to a cast of about 10-15, but right now I've got 26.  That alone has taken some getting used to.  Throw in a (diva) music director and a choreographer & I'm about ready to start eating Tylenol with every meal.  Also, I've got flys & follow spot in this production, which I've never called before, so that has me a little nervous (flys more than follow spot).  

Could someone please explain the fold out method of the prompt book?  I struggled for weeks trying to figure out how to integrate script & music & finally just gave up.
