Diary of a Mad Stage Manager

I've just gotten my first posting as a stage manager and I want to share every minute of it. I'm a student of a technical theatre production course in Canada, and I want some place to write down my notes, explain the complex emotions and situations that will inevitably arise, and as I get closer to opening night, someplace I can VENT! I am Managing a showing of Hedda Gabbler, we open mid November, wish me luck :)

Auditions pt 2

Auditions were tonight for Hedda Gabler 7:00 - 9:00 but of course I didn’t get out until 11:00.  My director decided to cast the show then and there and then send out all emails.  On the plus side I finally got my fucking script.  On the minus, there goes my weekend to my fucking script. I am weary. Let me rest.
