    Cueing cell phones?

    I need help figuring out ways to cue cell phones to ring. My director wishes for the sounds to come from the phones instead of the speakers to make it more realistic, and to help provide more focus (as the characters are constantly moving around) Additional info: There are 5 actors total...

    Dimmers

    I am aware that only professionals should set up the equipment. We already decided that no one other than a professional is to set up or help set up the equipment. I was wondering a few things out of curiosity.

    Dimmers

    I'm new when it comes to the actual dimming equipment. My company is getting portable dimming equipment. Of course I wouldn't be installing/setting it up since I don't know much about them. I tried doing some research but haven't found the answers I'm looking for. Our light board is a ETC...

    Stopping a show

    Quick question: Is there a standard fire announcement speech to say before curtain and what to say in case fire-alarm goes off again? Word-for-word. I'm going to post the fire announcement in all the booths and keep them both in my future prompt books. (all I need is to set up the announce...

    Stopping a show

    In my instance the fire alarm was triggered by the haze machine located stage-right. I picked up a god mic and asked audience members to exit building, then got on comms and told a crew member to round up the dancers and take them out. I had a crew member (who all had 2-way radios) at every...

    Stage Manager's station

    Any designs or pictures? I started off (design) with a cabinet-like rack with swivel casters with removable shelves and pull-out desk for prompt book and cue sheets. Above that I'm going to install a lamp (I saw one on a conductor's podium. It was similar to a music stand light but bigger...

    Comms

    Thankyou! Do you know if telex has that stage announce feature or something so I can patch it to dressing/green room or house PA?

    Comms

    I have a few questions regarding intercoms (clear-com, telex, etc) Do you prefer to have the system wired to the green room/dressing rooms differently than that of control booth and tech? Different channel or something. (I know most actors disregard what's said on comms cause they mostly hear...

    Stage Manager's station

    It was a thought. But makes better sense to just run power cords when I would have to run video feeds and intercom as well.

    Stage Manager's station

    I was thinking of building a portable stage manager "station". Where the Stage Manager can call/run the show anywhere in the theatre space. It would have racks for video monitors, intercom equipment (headset & master station) A built in desk to put prompt book and other materials. It would have...
