SCHEDULE: rehearsal scene breakdown how to
« on: Aug 14, 2018, 07:17 pm »
Hi I'm a fairly new SM here. The props designer on the show I'm working on just asked me for a rehearsal scene breakdown. I've made a character scene breakdown and have a rehearsal schedule but she is wanting to know what scenes we will be working on when. How does one go about creating that? Is that something the director and I would create together?

IMHO - unless the Director has already put together a detailed rehearsal schedule, you won't know until the night before. Be sure and include what scenes you will be working on and the props you will need for those scenes in each nightly rehearsal report.
Ask for "do-fers" if the actual show props are not available yet. Use please and thank you. A lot...
