In case you didn’t know, I am a theatre student, and I’ve been for about a year and a quarter so far and I am enjoying it. The crowd is so interesting and odd, but they’re a lot of fun to be around. Anyways each year our school does two productions, a play in the fall and a musical in the spring. For my Advanced Theatre class, we must have at least 15 hours of work per play, so I though I would try doing lights. So far I’m enjoying lights, basically just setting cues and such on the light board testing what lights properly light the scene. Yesterday was a different story, yesterday we finally got to some difficult activities in lights, as in adding lights to the electrics and adding gels.
Here is what we did:
Yes. I know. We were on top of the scaffolds… I mean seriously I was freaked out. Our theatre is known for being haunted (I’ll get into that a little bit closer to Halloween), but those things are about 2 stories high and have very few railings (especially the sides facing out toward the audience). In the photos you can also see Pedro, who is a higher ranking member of lights than I am (I am the youngest and I am ranked 4/5). We’re about to go into the Tech Week of our show and then the week after we will begin performances, which I am ready to light!
That’s about all…
