Opening night for The Aristocrats

Posted by: Linda | November 18, 2006, 10:42 am

Last night was the night: ‘my’ play, ‘my’ Aristocrats had its opening night. This week was nerve wrecking, but it was worth it: everything is running smoothly. As the stage manager I’m running around with my check list an hour before the show: check, check, double check. During the show I’m calling the cues: lights…. go! Music …. go! Is father standing by for his entrance? I have learned to be super organized and I’ve learned a lot about the technical side of theatre. We have 4 shows a week: Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday so we have two more shows to go this weekend. It’s not routine yet so I’m already getting nervous for tonight. My brother William and sister-in-law Sheri are coming to see the show tonight, I hope they’ll enjoy it.
