After the peaceful bliss that has been spring break, there will be a week of chaos known simply as tech week. For those of you that have theatre experience, I'm sure chills are already quivering up and down your spine at the very mention. However, if you are unfamiliar, I'll explain.
Tech is when all the lights, sound, and costumes are added to a production. Each of these components has a wide margin of disaster, so it means late nights fighting with breaking props, tearing seams, and things that just aren't working for the show.
What's more, we only have three days to tech before the show opens which adds to the tension and means even later nights.
Don't be surprised if I drop off the grid for a few days-- I shall return once I have (hopefully) done a run that Tennessee Williams would have been proud of.
