Lights, Camera, Action!

Captain’s Log   4,566

Progress is being made on California Suite!  YAY!  I met with the lighting designer/technical director yesterday and we set up some interesting goals and guidelines.  Without a real rehearsal space, we are going to have to rely on people’s homes.  Good thing there are never more than 4 people on stage at a time.  Otherwise, this would be impossible.   I only wish we had a real theatre with real space.  Real lights.  We may have to load in the entire show on Thursday, March 7th and then rehearse until 2:00 in the morning.  Back around 2:00 on Friday the 8th to run it a few more times before we open that night.  It’s a lot of lights to set up and flats to screw together, etc.  One of the biggest challenges will be making French doors that connect the living room with the bedroom.  They are necessary for one scene, so they need to be built.  I am going to step aside and let the set builders do what set builder do.

Busy week ahead.  Daylight is burning!
