the months of preparing for a performance, the many hours of
learning lines and the positioning the various performers on
the stage during the performance, it is inevitable that somewhere
along the line somebody will forget a line or two. It takes
a special person to follow the play line for line ready to prompt,
with the forgotten line when it is required.
successful play needs a variety of make up for the actors/actresses
- it takes a special skill to do this job well.
good production requires the set to be lit during the play and
for this to change as the play progesses. The people who perform
this task sit in the murky background awaiting queue lines at
which point a careful flick of a switch or gentle movement of
a dimmer immediately transforms the setting.
Management, Props and Set Design
production needs a set that has to be designed and created.
With every production go the accessories that are required on
stage, the props, that have to be acquired and then presemted
at the correct time on each production night.
