Stage Managing Frankenstein by Stage Management Intern Bessie Edwards

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 4:23 pm

When West Side Story closed a few weeks ago, I was relieved, thinking that my job would get slightly easier with a cast of only 8 compared to 32, no musical numbers, and no dream ballets- boy was I wrong! Frankenstein has turned out to be one of the most technically challenging productions I have ever worked on.  While the cast is small, there are nine crew members, dozens of props and furniture pieces, 2 ships, a lab, and over 100 lighting and sound cues…oh and fog, lots of fog.  Preparation for this show has been epic because of all of the props, furniture pieces and shifts that occur.  Lists including all the props and where they need to be set for the top of the show had to be made, and a 7 page shift sheet that includes not only props and furniture, but fog machines that need to be moved around during shifts, setting sails, and making it snow.  With the help of the Wings apprentices, this tech process has gone more smoothly than I could have ever anticipated for a show that has so much.  Though it has been a long endeavor, every bit of effort has been worth it!  I can’t wait for the public to see this show!!!
