Organizing over 17 people plus a director for rehearsals in order to cover each and every scene being done in the show Loves Labours Lost.
It was alot of fun. Could be stressful at times due to different scheduling and booking rehearsal spaces.
I was also involved in making props and set pieces for the show.
My ultimate job was to call the show when all the other bits were said and done. That means making sure the lighting and sound cues were occurring and that there was communication with my Assistant Stage Manager ground floor backstage.
It was my job to make sure the stage was set each night and to make sure everyone was in place before we began. It was an intense and rewarding job getting to watch the show 7 times total with a 1.5- 2 hour run time on the show (that includes intermission).
You often play the middle man between the director and the actors or the director and the other creative minds involved in the set, costuming and props.
This is a job that tests your people skills and stress levels and the end results are extremely rewarding because everyone is working towards an end goal. Everyone in the show is there because they want to be which makes everything that much more enjoyable- You do not have to convince anyone of what is fun or necessary.
