Ok, Quick question! For the show im working on now, I have a cast of 15 in a small theatre with a director that I have worked with. Well...He gave me an ASM for this show so I can show someone how to properly SM. But this girl has SMed before and from what I'm told she was not very good at it. And she is proned to freak outs. I get along with her fine but now I am a little bit worried about giving her resposibilities. We just recently started rehearsals for this show so I have time before she really gets into anything. But how would you deal with this without it ending up with me doing all the work (which I dont mind). And finally. Since this is the first time having an ASM. I dont really know what to have her do, besides sit on script during rehearsals while i take notes. I know once the show starts she runs the backstage area but what can she do until then? I hate having nothing for her to do! Well moreso I feel bad that she is there doing nothing. I have the SM handbook and there is not much in there about what the ASM does and im not having much luck looking online. So what should I have her do? Any help would be wonderfull! Thanks everyone!
