Viva Mexico Stage Manager – The Dress Rehearsal

If you’re up to date on my Blogs you’ll know that I volunteered to be Stage Manager for our next show – Viva Mexico – only a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t been a Stage Manager before. In fact I’ve never worked backstage before. So “being thrown in at the deep end” is a bit of an understatement.

Never-the-less, I’m giving it my best shot.

Today was the dress rehearsal – tomorrow is opening night. The on-stage stuff went well. My bit went… badly. Cues were missed, curtains opened at the wrongs times, scene changes were slow… did I miss anything?

Well, they do say that a bad dress rehearsal is a sign of a good show. Apparantly. I hope so.

Anyway, my intention is to Blog after each night to keep you up-to-date with how it’s going (hence the number in the title). Keep your fingers crossed for me for opening night!
