'Stage Management'

Here are Fake Alcohol recipes used for the show.

Here is How to Thicken Fake Blood.

Technical Stage Management

Technical Solutions

Drift Length Selection

Due to the nature of the rigging, the bars were not able to fly in past the set once constructed. To ensure the bars were able to be balanced by the Flyman, the drift lengths were calculated to ensure the cradle would be sitting at a height to allow for loading (SP @ Fly floor, DP @ Intermediate Fly Floor) while the bottom of the set piece was only just off the deck. These lengths were also chosen to ensure the door set pieces could be lowered back to the deck to attach the gauze when it needed attached.

Drift Lengths

Wall 1 - 4 x 2M

Door 1 - 2 X 3M

Wall 2 - 4 X 3M

Door 2 - 2 X 3.8M

Wall 3 - 4 X 4M

Door 3 - 2 X 5M

Trapeze LX Bars

In order to allow for mid-run maintenance/repairs/changes to LX rigging once the set was constructed, a solution was devised to hang the LX bars on trapeze bars short enough to allow them to fly between the walls of the set.

Due to the nature of the rigging, the bars were not sitting on end stops during loading. To ensure the bars did not become out of balance, the drift lengths were calculated at 6m to ensure the cradle would be sitting at a height to allow for loading (SP @ Fly floor, DP @ Intermediate Fly Floor) while the bar was at deck working height.

Trapeze Bar Lengths

LX 1 - NO TRAPEZE

LX 2 - 8M

LX 3 - 7.5M

LX 4 - 5.5M

LX 5 - 4.8M

LX 6 - 3.8M

LX 7 - 3M

Comms Zip-lines

Since there were no wireless comms and spotter of fly cues had to move from far US to DS, zip lines of wore rope were run US-DS in each wing. and tensioned with turn buckles. Similar to the system installed on fly floor, rings were attached which got rid of cables on the ground and allowed spotters to move freely in the wing.

Control

Control for this show was provided by the GrandMA1 Full-size console. The console was also running a network session, which allowed the designer to have a laptop with separate views and change these as she wished.

Followspots

Followspots were used on this show. However the RJ Korrigans would have been too large to fit into the 1st Circle Slip Positions. Hence, 26 Degree source 4 units were used instead.
