Cranky and out the door.
Coffee makes life a bit better and were at the venue.
Reading while I await instruction from the boy. He does lights for the show so we're there early to get lights set.
Helping. At least that's what I call it. I pretty much sit there and he yells what channel he wants me to turn on. Not a bad gig.
Reheating my coffee after helping to set up the lobby with people.
A water main broke on the street next to the theater. Luckily it didn't affect us.
Sitting in the balcony to run the follow spot. I get to run the spotlight for the ballet pit on by the ballet students. This year was Charlotte's Web, i love that they do creative and interesting ballets. I love that spot light. I would like one in my everyday life. It would be so dramatic. Maybe I'll just find a really strong flashlight.
Into the dressing room to get set to tech.
Watching Synthesis dance tech. They are fantastic.
Time to not look homeless anymore and put on the pretty for the cocktail hour. (Company members assist with different elements as needed)
I missed taking pictures at 5 and 6 because I was busy.
Eclipse performs a trio called Embers that I love watching, I almost cry every time I see it. It's beautiful.
In the catwalk waiting to drop some rigging down for a performer from the circus school.
I missed 9 pm because I was dancing.
Show over. Time to help break down. I love the no sign over the switch. We learned that it blows the fuse for the lights in the dressing room when a sign had fallen off another switch. Oops.
The pulls for the curtains as we turn lights off.
It was a fun, hectic, tiring day but it's always fantastic.
