    Today was opening night of Les Mis, for which I was a stagehand. For one scene, I rolled on a table while nobody else and nothing else was on stage. The stage manager decided to call the light cue before I'd put the table on its spikes, so I'm standing there in a 10-foot radius of light with the entire audience looking at me at the beginning of a wedding before anything else is on stage.

    It was a week long tech week in which we hung and focused 300 lights, built the entire set, and had one slow tech rehearsal with barely any light cues, and 1 dress rehearsal, still not with all the light cues. It was a theatre camp, for which the tech crew was hired, and never having worked in the space before, we ran into a lot of last minute problems.
