Shelves arrived today!

Well the lights are at the chapel, Mel and Sean took all of the costumes to the rehearsal place for fittings. We are now waiting for the truck to pick us up again so we cn mov e the stage over to the chapel. I've been puttering around this afternoon starting to clean up a little because they want to have a gala here after the show on the 27th. Now that it's pretty much decided what the lighting and sound rig will be for this show, I can start putting things away in a deeper spot.

A lot of metal shelving arrived today. Good thing. Mel and Sean will be very happy they can organize the shop a little more. I've got the storage room at the back starting to look like a proper ferreteria.

I've got this grave feeling that this is not going to come together. Personally, I think it will but I just can't see the light at the end of the tunnel yet. I won't be able to energize this dimmer rack I've got until Monday (hopefully early), so I still don't know if it even works. It came from Mick at the Studio Theatre and before that I Imagine it was at the Patterson Theatre so I have complete faith that it has been maintained impeccably but I still haven't seen it actually pass electrons yet. I'm not totally thrilled with my plan for hanging the lights. My giant table idea is very shaky to erect with a couple 20something yr. old kids. I think we've got a good plan now, and We'll make it an all hands project when that day comes (hopefully Monday). I could make it way better except there's no Canadian tire here. It'll be fine I'm just having a moment.

.....(it's 8pm now). SO I wrote the rest of this earlier we're going for dinner now. Tomorrow should me mostly a day off. I finally got a list of sound and light cues. I'll be on my computer all day so I'll post more later.

  1. From "Shakespeare in Love:"

    Philip Henslowe: Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.

    Hugh Fennyman: So what do we do?

    Philip Henslowe: Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.

    Hugh Fennyman: How?

    Philip Henslowe: I don't know. It's a mystery.
