And Then There Were None!

2010 was a busy year for me in the theatre world.  I had left working for IRIS in September 2009 and I was working for….. for….. gadzooks, I can’t even bring myself to say her name.  Suffice to say, I went to work for someone who was such a treasure – hopefully someone will bury her someday.

Regardless, I was looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses.  I had extra time on my hands and I was no longer commuting to Langley each day.  So, with Alex’s blessing, I took on a second stage managing gig – this one was another Agatha Christie play:

And Then There Were None!

This was Ms. Christie’s most popular whodunnit – selling over 100 million copies.

It was also an opportunity to work with Tracy Labrosse once again, who is one of my favourite actors.  Then, there was my director, Alison Schamberger, who has always made me feel like I am the most important person in her cast and crew.

This also gave me a chance to work with Sara Weber and Miles Lavkulich who were instrumental in helping me hone my skills as a stage manager.

The show was so much fun to work on, even with some truly diva-ish performances but, we still managed to pull off a great run.

I learned so much about patience, calm-demeanor and time management on this production.

I also learned that you never miss with Stage Crew.  The assistant stage managers:  Colleen and Deborah went truly above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything worked to perfection.
