I am brand spankin' new to this board. However, I have already found that there are numerous good suggestions to figure out problems, so I look forward to helping and being helped.
Some background on me: I direct a small school musical in Central Western PA. Small budget, but big aspirations. Decent parent support, especially this year. I have found several great ways to stretch a dollar while still providing a good look to a show.
Hope to hear from you soon!
