A BUNCH OF SKILLED BACKSTAGE OPERATORS
STAGE MANAGER This comedy has 17 scenes, taking place in 5 separate locations, using one main set with 4 simple variations to accomplish the settings. Over 100 sound cues; approximately the same number of lighting cues. A black hand gang of 2 or 3 will be needed by you. Busy, busy …..
LIGHTING DESIGN Presumably the same person, but not necessarily.
AND OPERATOR Busy lighting plot, 6 main areas to be lit independently.
All indoor scenes. One huge thunderstorm with lightning. One press conference with flashing camera lights. More press flashing lights in the storm scene. Never a dull moment with 17 scenes to cover. The in-house Merlin lighting technician will be able to rig the lights, if required.
SOUND OPERATOR All sound effects and music (approx. 120 cues) have been recorded on QLab4. Operation will require a very focussed mind, as timing is critical for almost all. Ideally, the operator would attend quite a few of the later rehearsals, as the sound is often an integral part of the action, with cast acting with it and as a result of it. If you aren’t familiar with QLab4, training can be provided.
PROPS A very large number of props are needed ( a full list is already available on request) but most are readily available. A working mobility scooter (at no cost to us!) is the difficult one!
