Writing Assistant…Tech Edition

Writing Assistant


A day early, because I don’t trust myself to remember to do this tomorrow, but look! A writing assistant post! The extra cuteness is brought to you by tech. Apparently when I’m gone for long hours, Donna misses me.

Also, don’t be fooled by the title of the post. I’m not actually dedicated enough to write anything worthwhile during tech. Donna’s helping me write an email.

In other news, life should slow down very soon and I’ll hopefully get back to more posts…including some pics of what I’ve been working on since January. (Hint: it’s pretty freaking cool.)

Getting Dressed for Tech

Getting everyone in costumes for the first time is always my favorite part of tech. Always. Whether on the little shows, when I’m the designer, or on the biggest shows when I’m a lowly dresser.

There’s always giddy, happy energy and manageable chaos. I’m quite fond of manageable chaos, when I know what’s going on. Getting dressed for the first time is not nearly as enjoyable if I don’t know what’s happening.

Usually, the stage manager schedules what feels like 10 minutes to get ready (almost always it’s really more like the standard 1/2 hour call). This morning, heeding my advice we got a whole hour set aside for the actors to get into costumes at the top of day. And wouldn’t you know it? Everyone was done in 30 minutes, guaranteeing that this stage manager will never set aside such a large block of time to get ready, ever. (I’m sorry for this cast’s efficiency, future costume designers!)

But, they’re all dressed. And they look freaking awesome. High Schooler Hamlet may be my favorite design that I’ve ever done. I lurves it.

Writing Assistant Monday


Yes, I know she matches the couch.

I wrote and scheduled these posts back in July. By the time this one posts I will be done and home from Literary Boot Camp, moving immediately on to tech of Hamlet, my brother will have turned 27 and I will be one week away from starting back to full time work. Whew. Time flies.
