"You know you work in non-profit theatre if...."

I love this site to death.

....you've ever appeared on stage wearing your own clothes. (Yes...)
....you've ever cleaned a tuxedo with a magic marker. (Or sprayed a costume liberally with Febreeze and declared it dry-cleaned.)
....your family is more than 50% of the staff. (Viva le Hermans!)
....you've ever appeared in a show where tech week is devoted to getting the running time under four and a half hours..... (Yes, of course...)
....you've ever appeared on stage in an English drawing room murder mystery where half the cast spoke with southern accents. (Or a version of Dracule where the director pointedly tells you not to use British accents?)
....you think Neil Simon is a misunderstood genius. (Doesn't everyone?)
....you've ever appeared in a show where the cast out-numbered the audience 2 to 1. (Or more...)
....the audience recognizes you the minute you walk on stage because they saw you taking out the trash before the show. (*Snerks*)
....you've ever menaced/threatened anyone with a gun held together with electrical tape. (Those are the only guns we have... unless you wanna use the SuperSoaker)
....you've ever had to haul a sofa off stage between scenes wearing an evening gown and heels. (Yes...)
....you've ever appeared in a show where an actor leaned out through a window without opening it first. (Or tried to walk through an invisible wall and pretended to hit his head on it?)
....you've ever heard a director say "Try not to bump into the furniture" and mean it. (*Giggles*)
....the set designer has ever told you not to walk on the left half of the stage because the floor's still wet -- five minutes before curtain. (Yup... "Try not to walk here or the stage will collapse")

  • Don't talk to me about life.

    I feel like I should write in here, at least for myself. So I will. Hah. The beginning of my semester was murderous, due to one of the off-campus…

  • I'm not cool enough for the Internet

    Whoa, so I go to update and find a mostly-written entry about last semester's terrible Harry Potter class. I totally don't even remember writing it.…

  • Another drive-by update

    It's a bit sad that updating has become a bi-yearly affair for me, but it's an unfortunate side effect of working and trying to pull my life…
