  • Hey, how'd that second show go?  AMAZING!!!!!  Congrats to everyone for a job well done!
  • Tomorrow, mic check/vocal warms ups will be at approx. 1:15pm or 1:20pm with house opening at 1:30pm, so we will set up the set beforehand.  Please still arrive by 1:00pm, however.
  • Just so we're all on the same page, the blackout cue at the very end of the show (after curtain call) will go after your bow(s).
  • If you ordered a show shirt, give your payment (Check for $20 made out to the Georgetown Palace Theatre) to Kristie and she will pass it on to Jessie; due by this Sunday.
  • Click on this Box link for all kinds of great information!  Check back often for new stuff!
  • Be aware that we have two impressionable teens on our crew, so please monitor your language and topics of conversation when they are present.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Please fill out and submit the form I sent as to the possibility of added matinee shows on March 14th, 21st, and/or 28th.  If you are unsure about a date, submit the form as if you cannot do that date and then email me with more specifics so that I can notate it.
  • To all who have entrances that require them to walk around to the front of the theater: If we have a performance where the weather proves to be too inclement, the contingency plan is to have your entrances occur through the stage right red curtain.  That will serve as the gangplank in case of really bad weather.  I will let you know if and when we need to do follow this plan.
  • Please check the trash schedule!  Is it your turn to help out?
  • Don't forget to sign in!    
  • If you have a prop that you would like to have a prop or costume preset backstage due to a quick entrance or exit, please write down what the costume or prop is and what page in the script it is used and let Kristie know.  She will find a home for it.
  • If you'd like to use the Palace's wifi, please use "Palace Guest".
  • Please remember that vocal parts are located in the cast Box folder.  Please review your parts!
  • Don't forget to take out what you bring in!  Throw away trash, put away props, etc., as you leave!
  • Want to see the rehearsal schedule and all of the rehearsal reports in one place?  Check out this blog!
  • Please do not take control of the lights via the lighting panel until asked as it then becomes impossible for Brittany to control the light board.
  • RUNNING CREW:  Callie and Austin will be arriving later than mic check/vocal warm ups are scheduled to happen, so please go ahead and set up the bar, the stools, table, chairs, and lower batten 2 at 1:00pm (or soon thereafter).  The cast will do their mic checks in front of the batten at around 1:15pm.
  • KRISTIE: Can you please put a super tiny piece of gaffe tape over the screw we put in Lord Evelyn's stateroom tonight?  It is very shiny.
  • CREW ON HEADSET: Please, please, please acknowledge warnings and standbys.  That's the only way to indicate that you have heard what has been said.
  • CREW ON HEADSET: Please, please, please do NOT talk during a standby.  It can really throw off the concentration of those who are about to give and take cues.
  • Don't forget to sign in!  The sign in sheet is located right inside the door into the tin barn.
  • Please make sure you are very quiet backstage.  When speaking on headset backstage, please speak quietly or go into the alley to speak at a normal volume.  
  • When to be here:  Fridays & Saturdays -- 6:00pm
  •                               Sundays -- 12:30pm

  • RON & SAM: The light board restarted fading cues four different times tonight.  Two of the cues were the same ones that had issues last night.
  • RON: Tim S. reports that the bar that he pulls on to open the SR stateroom is very loose.  I tightened the screw that goes through the PVC pipe, and Cody put an extra screw into the bottom of the wooden piece holding the PVC to the wall.  Would you please look at it?
  • RON: The bulb in the light above the sound and spot op has gone out and needs to be changed.
  • TAMAR: Neal cut his finger tonight and his white jacket has a small amount of blood on the left side pocket.
  • TAMAR: Marc's grey pants are too loose and have a hole near the waistline.  Backstage crew pinned them tighter and pinned the hole closed as a quick fix. 
  • Neal cut his middle finger, so it was cleaned and covered with a bandage.
